Welcome to the official website of the Surrey Bowmen archery
club. Surrey Bowmen (and women!) are based at the Old Paddock, Epsom
Downs, Surrey, England.
We are a small, friendly club, with a history
that can be traced back as far as 1790. We meet regularly to
participate in target archery, shooting recurve, compound and
traditional longbow. Members range in age from 9 upwards, with skill
levels from complete beginner through to the more 'experienced'
archer! We are always pleased to welcome new members to the club.
If you are interested in having a go at archery, then please contact us
for information on our beginners courses. These are run from April
to July for both children and adults. We can provide tuition and all
the basic equipment you will need to have a go at this great sport!
Beginners courses start from just £40.
The Club takes safeguarding very seriously and has adopted the Archery GB Policy for Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults, details of which may be found at www.archerygb.org. The club has a designated Safeguarding Officer who may be contacted if you have any queries or concerns; the Club's Safeguarding Code of Practice can be viewed here.
Surrey Bowmen meet on most Sunday mornings, typically arriving at
the Old Paddock at 10.00 a.m. to start shooting at 10.30 a.m. Please
see the fixture list for changes to this timetable, and also details
of specific competitions and tournaments. Also shown are
restrictions when we cannot shoot at the Old Paddock, due to horse
racing on the Downs.
Practice sessions are also held most Saturday afternoons
throughout the year (meet at 2.00 p.m. to shoot at 2.30 p.m.) and
Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the Summer (meet from 5.00
p.m. to shoot at 5.30 p.m.)
Members of Surrey Bowmen or Atkins Archers are eligible to join our indoor group. This enables them to use the facilities of Gally Hill Shooting Club for
indoor shooting. This facility, located in Banstead, is normally
available on every Wednesday afternoon and evening throughout the year by
arrangement with the keyholders.
The clubroom above the shooting range offers full social
facilities, including tea, coffee and a lounge environment to meet
and chat. Non shooting visitors are also welcome at no charge.
