There's always something going on at Bowbrook, for all levels of archer, from beginners courses and have-a-go sessions to corporate days and World Record Status competitions. We're proud to say that our facilities are amongst the best in the U.K. and may well find yourself shooting alongside members of the GB squad, who train with us regularly.
Under normal circumstances, pandemic aside, club Sessions run on Tuesdays & Thursdays between 17:30 and 21:00, Saturdays between 14:00 and 17:00, and Wednesdays and Sundays between 10:00 and 13:00. All planned activities can be viewed in the diary.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, regular club sessions have been suspended. All shooting sessions must be booked by using the booking system (for which you will need to know the current gate passcode). The booking requirement helps the members to follow social distancing requirements but also provides a record should the worst happen and a club member test positive for Covid-19 – our booking system can then act as a track and trace register.
A number of regular competitions are held on Bowbrook’s shooting range. Most of these are annual events although there is a move to hold more regular record status shoots in the future.
This series, open to all the county’s archers, is designed to encourage newcomers to the sport, of all ages, to make their first forays into competitive archery in a friendly and sociable setting as well as providing an opportunity for longer term members of the county’s archery family to get together.
This is part of the “Wenlock Olympian Society’s” annual series of events to commemorate the achievements of William Penny Brooks, whose ideas in the 1880’s led to the formation of the modern Olympic movement.
Sword of Shrewsbury
