Welcome to Glasgow Archers!


We’ve been open all summer and although we won’t be indoors anytime soon, we intend to continue shooting throughout the winter –  OUTDOORS! And not just for our own members, we welcome visiting archers to our field as well ( for details see Shooting Times). Rest assured we fully conform to the Scottish Government’s Covid advice, Scottish Archery’s Covid advice, Archery GB’s Covid advice and my mothers! ;o)
Please see the News Blog for how things are currently working as well as check out our facebook page for up to the minute details. See you on the Line!

Please feel free to browse the site, there’s a lot of stuff about archery in here with an emphasis on keeping articles funny as well as interesting. Use the drop-down menu bar above (the down pointing triangle means mouse over for options) to check out our book reviews, factual pieces, the news blog, the archery humour page or perhaps a useful pdfs (which you can download and keep for reference) all of which are definitely not your usual dry archery waffle. Thank you for dropping by, hope you find something of interest on the website and perhaps we might even see you on our line now that things are getting a little more settled. If you do find anything interesting, have any questions, fancy a gossip or just want to say hi … drop us a message.

So … Glasgow Archers! 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 and contracted over the years depending on the current popularity of archery. We currently have 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 honoured to have coach David Hutton as our chairman and coach Michael Mather (one time internationalist and past CEO of Scottish Archery) on our team.

When we don’t have an ongoing pandemic, 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 or how things are operating during the ever changing Covid lockdown situation, see our Shooting Times page.

Glasgow Archers unfortunately do not have facilities (outside of special events such as a scheduled Come and Try or organized Craigholme fete) 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.
