Founded in 2014, Newnham Archery Club is the Forest Of Dean's newest archery club. We welcome existing archers of all ages and abilities who are looking to join a new club, and shoot in a friendly, relaxed environment.  As with all archery clubs we are constituted and do our best to provide a safe supported environment for our members to relax, as well as hone their skills.

We are only a small club, numbering only around 20 members but over the last few years our archers have gone from strength to strength, increasing in skills and confidence.  Competing in different disciplines and at tournaments from Scotland to Devon we have trained together, supported each other and sometimes even had to buy each other drinks. This year its also been great to see our junior archers doing so well as members of the Gloucestershire County Team.

One of the best things to come out of our club becoming more established has been the support we have had from other clubs, in particular the Bowmen of the Deans, who run wonderful friendly tournaments and with whom we shoot indoors through the colder part of the winter.  We are sometimes visited by archers from St.Kingsmark who have helped with their advice and are directly responsible for some of our archers taking up the longbow.  

We have had huge amounts of friendly advice and help from the staff and owners or Wales Archery Specialists where most of us have bought our equipment from.

Finally this is a little excuse to say a thank you to the folk of Newnham-on-Severn who have supported us through donations from the Severn Dean Lions, coming to our coffee mornings and joining in have a go sessions.  The biggest thank-you must go to Newnham County Cricket Club who have given us a home at their grounds.

Up Next!
  • Club Shoots

    Autumn Sessions
    As we move towards winter and shooting indoors with Bowmen of the Deans, our outdoor sessions are a case of making the best of the weather and the light.  Often at this time of the year its worth getting on site by 11 a.m.  and finishing earlier before it gets too cold.  Hot chocolate supplies are stashed in the Cup cupboard!

  • Crick 3D Shoot

    3D Field Shoot
    Summer months the club takes occasional trips to Wye Valley Archery to shoot the 3D field range.
    Dates: TBC. N.B No club shoot on these days.

Winters coming!
Winters coming, make sure you wrap up warm for Archery Sessions!
