The Royal Leamington Spa Archery Society is one of the country's largest clubs and over the years has had among its members some of the country's finest archers. We are lucky to have open access to our shooting ground, so that members are able to use it virtually whenever they wish. In the summer our main club night is Friday, but we also shoot on Wednesday evenings, after the beginners class, and often on Sundays. During the winter we shoot mostly indoors.

All About Archery
Not sure what archery is all about? Then for a brief description of the sport, explaining the different types of archery and the main types of bows, why not have a look at our About Archery page.
If you are interested in taking up the sport of archery then why not enroll on one of our beginners courses. You will be coached by experienced archers and learn the basic skills. You will find it fun and be hitting the gold in no time. Further details are available on our Beginners Courses page.
We can do have-a-go sessions on our own ground for clubs, societies, schools and work groups who would like a more informal introduction than our beginner’s course, or who just want to try something different by way of an evening out! Further details are available on our Have-A-Go page.
