The Longbow Club
The club is affiliated to GNAS, Cheshire Archery Association and Northern Counties Archery Society as well as ILAA and BLBS. We run a rolling monthly beginners course which reduces the waiting time people may have experienced from other clubs. We have a 20 yard, 8 lane indoor venue at The Archery Centre in Birkenhead and an outdoor venue that allows members to shoot up to 80 yards target archery and all distances in clout archery. The club has members that are experienced in all those areas. With three Archery GB qualified coaches we can help all archers develop and progress.
Our club members
Our members consist of both male and female archers with seniors and juniors competing in Archery GB indoor and outdoor tournaments. Some of our senior archers represent the club in the winter Cheshire leagues. The Longbow Club has two Archery GB qualified coaches. In addition to Archery GB membership some of our members are also associated with National Field Archery Society (NFAS), English War Bow Society (EWBS), British Long Bow Society (BLBS) and are actively encouraged to shoot all forms of traditional archery.
