Welcome to Glasgow Archers!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the ongoing health situation, Glasgow Archers have cancelled all events and club nights …. at least for a few more weeks. However, we have started investigating how to get the club back up and running ASAP.
Feel free to browse the site, check out out book reviews, archery humour or perhaps the useful pdfs and perhaps we’ll see you when things are a little more settled.
We were formed in 1948 (back then some of our members shot in pubs on dart boards against darts players!!!) and have catered for archers of all abilities and styles (except crossbow) though-out that time. From humble beginnings, the club has grown steadily over the years and currently has in excess of 60 members. A part of the world-wide archery community, we are active in national events and are affiliated with the Scottish Archery Association, Archery GB and with World Archery.
From beginners to internationally competitive archers, the majority of archery abilities, styles and bow types are present and actively encouraged. Coaching and mentoring are hugely important to us with our more experienced members, in addition to our coaches, assisting beginners as they progress. Glasgow Archers is also honoured to have county coach David Hutton as our lead coach and chairman.
We shoot indoors at Craigholme Sports Hub during the winter (September till end of March) on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. During the summer (aka the rainy season – April till September) we’re outdoors at Craigholme on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. For more information see our Shooting Times page.
Glasgow Archers do not have facilities (outside of special events such as a Come and Try) to accommodate anyone wanting to try out archery as a one off. You need to either be a member, an associate member or an experienced archer visiting as a guest. For more details on how to join us on the line, see our Joining and Fees page.
Feel free to browse our site via the drop down menus above – note: our editor has a “sense of humour” so please accept our apologies in advance – and remember to drop by the News Blog, Events and our Facebook page for all the latest information!
