Covid19 Update 18 May

Dear Members,
We are pleased to say that from Saturday 16th May Woking Archery Club’s field is once again open for shooting!
We do have to ask you to abide by a few extra rules in order to limit social contact and to follow Archery GB’s recommended guidelines for return to Archery. The WAC guide to shooting during this period can be found here, please ensure you read it carefully and understand what we are asking you to do.

Numbers at the field are restricted, to 10 taregts, so you will need to book a target each time you intend to shoot. The link for booking follows and is also in the WAC Guide. Signupgenius Target Booking

RHS Wisley have now removed the physical barriers that were stopping us from driving to our field, so we can now access our field by car and so the target limit is now 10 targets, the gate combination is back to the pre lockdown code.

If you wish to score a round scoresheets can be downloaded and printed here or use your apps, please do not leave these to be collected and send a photo to records@wokingarchery.club is you want them to be recorded.

The first few days have gone smoothly, thanks to everyone for being careful to follow the guides helping everyone to stay safe and ensure we can remain open.

Please keep an eye out for updates on this page.
Stay Safe and Good Shooting!
Your Committee

The ongoing complication is that for security reasons the RHS have blocked all vehicle access to car park 4 & 5 from Wisley Lane. We therefore need to be mindful of Deers Farm Close residents when parking, and this is the main reason for starting with a restriction of 5 targets at a time. Please park against the Research Centre fence and walk to the field via our normal access route (the gate combination is also back to the pre lock down code). Please also make sure you display a club sticker in your car or put a note on the dashboard.

If you wish to score a round scoresheets can be downloaded and printed here or use your apps, please do not leave these to be collected and send a photo to records@wokingarchery.club is you want them to be recorded.

About Woking Archery Club

Woking Archery Club is situated just outside the Wisley village, close to the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens.  The Club membership is close to 150, making it one of the largest target shooting clubs in the County.  We successfully combine both recreational archery with serious competitive archery; for people who want to enjoy shooting in a relaxed environment. Age is no limit, we have archers from 7 to 80. Additionally, we have members shooting all of the different bow styles.

Our membership is open to all. if you are new to archery the club offers pre-booked beginners courses. So to make sure you get off to a great start you must complete a course before becoming a member, unless you’re an experienced archer.  Courses give a good grounding in all aspects of archery. This gives you plenty of opportunities to shoot while learning about safety and different types of bow.

We are lucky in having our own field that gives shooting seven days a week and having semi-permanent foam bosses.

The Club hosts a number of competitions. Woking Open tournament, the Woking Double (50m/60m/70m rounds), the County Junior championships, along with friendly shoots with local clubs.
