Welcome to Hull Archery Club, a primarily outdoor archery community that prides itself on fostering a friendly, family-oriented environment. We cater to individuals aged 14 and above, with the provision that those under 16 are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Our club is not just about archery; it’s a social hub that brings together individuals with shared interests, creating friendships that might not have formed otherwise.

About the Club

The Archery club in its own right has been running since 1985 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.

In 2024, we joined forces with Cottingham Archers, based in Hull, East Yorkshire. Our shooting sessions currently take place at the Cottingham Parks Golf & Leisure Club, Woodhill Way, Cottingham, East Yorkshire, HU16 5SW.

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. We have also mentored coaches from other clubs in their training to become qualified coaches for their respective clubs.

 

New Members and Training

We operate with two coaches (Fully trained by Archery GB), which are on hand full time. We have beginner’s training courses that last four to six sessions and give full guidance on recurve bows, shooting both barebow and freestyle. Please see our fees section for more information surrounding training costs. Training fees include a fee for insurance.
