Bourne 55 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 50 members and holding several sessions per week. We are actively involved in Community events including 'Have-a-Go' sessions and taster days. The club is non profit making and is run by volunteers.


Why the name ?

It's a question we get asked a lot. 

The name is derived from the fact that we shoot in the small hall at the Bourne Leisure Centre which yields a range of 55 feet.

Our motto !

Tende Altum, Tende Verus -

''Aim High, Aim True''
