Bourne55 Archery Club was founded in 2013, having started out as a family concern, with just 6 founder members. It has evolved into the club we have today, with 40 members and holding several sessions per week. The name is derived from the fact that we shoot at The Bourne Leisure Centre at a distance of 55 feet.
As well as shooting in the sport halls we hold outdoor shoots on the school playing fields, and also have outdoor ranges on Thorney Island where we are able to support all tournament rounds as well as clout shoots.
We run regular beginners courses, where all equipment is provided. We are also actively involved in community events including ‘ have-a-go ‘ sessions and taster days.
The minimum age for members is 9 yrs, with no upper limit, and we welcome archers with disabilities.
The club is a member of ArcheryGB, Hampshire Archery Association and Southern Counties Archery Society. It is non-profit making and run by volunteers.
