Seeking New Venue for Hull Archery Club

Dear Friends and Community Members,

We are reaching out with an urgent request. The Hull Archery Club, a cherished part of our community’s sporting life, is in need of a new home. Due to the upcoming closure of our current venue by Hull City Council, we are actively seeking a new space to continue our practice and competitions.

Our Requirements:

  • A spacious hall, room, or warehouse, with a minimum size of 12m x 25m.
  • Some storage capacity for our equipment.
  • Access to toilet facilities would be ideal.

We are looking for a space available for a few hours each week, but we are also open to discussing a more permanent solution if that’s what’s available.

If you know of any suitable locations, or if you’re an estate agent who can assist us, please get in touch. Your support in this time of transition is invaluable to us.

Thank you for your help and for sharing this message.

This grant will enable us to continue to offer high-quality archery services to our members and the wider community in Kingston Upon Hull.Flutter

Cash4Clubs, Sported and Flutter have recognised the value and impact of our club’s work in promoting archery as a sport for all. They have generously donated funds to help us improve our equipment, facilities and opportunities for our archers, especially during these difficult times. We are very grateful to them for their support and trust in our club.

With this grant, we will be able to:

  • Purchase new and upgraded bows, arrows, targets and safety equipment for our club
  • Improve our indoor range to meet the standards and expectations of our archers
  • Increase the number and variety of sessions, courses and events that we offer to people of different ages, abilities and backgrounds who want to learn or practice archery
  • Enhance the experience and satisfaction of our archers by providing them with professional coaching, feedback and guidance
  • Strengthen the sustainability and resilience of our club by developing our capacity, governance and partnerships

We are proud to be part of the Cash4Clubs, Sported and Flutter network and we look forward to collaborating with them to grow and develop our club. We encourage you to visit their websites to find out more about their amazing work and how you can get involved or support them.

We would also like to thank our coaches, volunteers, partners and supporters for their ongoing dedication and passion for our sport. Without them, our club would not be possible.

We hope that this grant will inspire more people to join our club and enjoy the benefits of archery, such as physical fitness, mental focus, social interaction and fun. We believe that archery is a sport for everyone and we welcome anyone who wants to give it a try.

Please contact us if you have any questions or if you are interested in joining our club. We would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your support and stay tuned for more news from Hull Archery Club! 🏹🎯

Introducing The Bee Badge

HAC Bee Badge
New Badge – Bee Badge First Look
To get this you need to get 6 arrows in one end and score either black or yellow with every arrow, in any combination as long as at least one arrow scores in either colour, so:
  • 1 Yellow and 5 Blacks
  • 2 Yellows and 4 Blacks
  • 3 Yellows and 3 Blacks
  • 4 Yellows and 2 Blacks
  • 5 Yellows and 1 Black
any other colour combination voids the attempt
Good Luck

Archery Ladder

Ladder League Table
This is something that’s been in the planning for over a year.

The ladder is intended to promote friendly competition and rivalry within the club. Any archers deemed to be acting unfairly may be penalised by position. Any disputes to the rules shall be settled by the Tournament and Records Officer.

  1. An archer may challenge anyone up to 3 places further up the ladder, or 3 places from the bottom if not on the ladder.
  2. The format of the match will be decided by the archer who receives the challenge; it can be either a full round (e.g. Portsmouth), a made-up round (e.g. 1 dozen arrows using reverse scoring), or a one arrow shoot off (if they are feeling confident!). Be creative, but please make them safe
  3. An archer who refuses a challenge shall be deemed to have lost the match.
  4. You may not challenge the same person more than once per session.
  5. If a challenge is won the victor moves into the defeated archer’s place, and everyone else moves down one place.
  6. Results of the match shall be given to Tournament and Records Officer as soon as possible after the match.
  7. You must shoot your own bow setup
