Our venues are at the Southbourne Leisure Centre, PO10 8PJ and Baker Barracks, Thorney Island.

The purpose of Archery is so great men and youth might

be stirred to labour, pastime and virtue,

to be plucked from idleness, unthrifty games and vice.

How honest a pastime for the mind,

how wholesome an exercise for the body,

not vile, not costly for poor men to sustain,

not lurking in holes and corners for ill men to misuse it,

but abiding in the open sight and face of the world.

Roger Ascham  1545
