About the Club
The Archery club in its own right has been running for 30 years in one form or another, at various locations around the city, including Eastmount School on Longhill estate. Back then it was a dedicated club for disabled members.
In 2011 the club membership dwindled to a low rate where it wasn’t viable to keep the club open without drastic change, just 2 members. The club was rebranded as the Hull Archery Club, and opened up to adults of all abilities, disabled or otherwise. Within 3 months the club had risen to a rate where it needed to expand and was moved to the large hall in the Walton Street Leisure Center.
After two years in the large hall, the Hull Archery Club decided to register with the governing bodies for the sport of archery. These include Archery GB which is the main national body which covers the entire country. Then we are also affiliated to the Northern Counties Archery Society, and also the Yorkshire Archery Association, which both cover the local area.
All our coaches either hold a current Archery GB recognised coaching qualification or are in the process of training towards one, been mentored by a coach.
