Following discussions with the local Parish Council and the East Leake Playing Fields Charity Committee, Keyworth Archers are currently re-locating to East Leake Playing Fields on Costock Road.
This is due to their present facility in Keyworth being re-developed. They are therefore offering the opportunity to East Leake residents to try archery through one of their beginner’s courses during the summer and to welcome potential new members.
Keyworth Archers was formed at the end of 2012. Since then, the club has grown to a fairly stable size of around 40 members, and we have both Level 1 and Level 2 experienced Archery GB coaches.
The club’s aims are:
- To introduce people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to the sport of archery, and to provide coaching and support to archers as they progress.
- To provide a supportive, friendly, fun atmosphere where all members feel comfortable.
- To be responsive to the ideas, ambitions and concerns of our members, and to give members as much of a voice as possible in the running of the club.
Keyworth Archers is a friendly inclusive community archery club that is particularly welcoming to new archers of all physical and mental abilities. The age range in the club runs from 10 to over 70. They try to be supportive of their members’ aims, whether they are to shoot competitively, to socialise, or just to relax with a bit of archery after a busy week. Social events are held a couple of times each year, and they meet for archery two or three times a week.
Regular beginner’s courses with all equipment provided are run by experienced, child protection accredited Archery GB Level 1 and 2 coaches with free coaching available to all existing members who wish to develop their skills.
This is a chance to shake off lockdown, get out, get active, to have fun and learn and experience archery in a safe and welcoming environment to all.
