Getting into Archery
A very inclusive and social sport, archery attracts seniors, juniors, young and old as well as able and disabled all shooting and competing together. You may even come across a whole family shooting at a club or at the same tournament as a large number of parents, children and often grandchildren are members of the same club.
Today archery comes in many different styles, so one of the first things we recomend is to locate a local club.
Archery GB is the largest govening body within the UK, their web site if full of information and also includes an online club finder online - Club Finder
Another main contact to have is the NFAS
The NFAS exists to foster and promote Field Archery as a sport. All their courses are unmarked (i.e. unknown distances), usually situated in woodland, with targets predominantly 3D or paper animal faces, think of it like archery golf, archers walk around a planned coarse, shooting from specific points, at targets placed at unknown distances.
Main Governing bodies
Field Archery - Archery GB & EFAA both offer marked distance woodland shooting
EFAA - English Field Archery Association
NFAS - unmarked woodland shooting - NFAS
With crossbow shooting, we first suggest the NFAS, but there is also a small target crossbow group within the UK, the NCF
and if target crossbow is more interesting to you, the best resourse for information will be the IAU - International Crossbow Shooting Union
