Covid 19 update, 24 March 2021
Fingers crossed for confirmation of the move to slightly reduced restrictions, the roadmap out of lockdown indicates that as of the 29th March the lockdown restrictions will be eased and we will be re-opening the field for shooting!
As before you must book a shooting slot so SignUp Genius has already been reinstated, bookings are available from Monday 29th (note that this date is subject to government confirmation) at the same link as before.

Whilst writing we have a few other bits of information for you…
The Codes for the gate and loos will be as they were before the lockdown.
We have been busy on a few things during the lockdown which hopefully will become apparent as the restrictions continue to ease. The most obvious ones are that the roof over the unsecured area is being replaced and a mesh all weather shooting lane has been laid on the left side of the field for our disabled/wheelchair archers to get to the target. The mesh needs time for the grass to establish through the matting and is currently fenced off, please stay off this area for the time being.
While you are at the field, please remember to adhere to our covid safe rules – WAC covid19 shooting guide http://bit.ly/wacb2archguide (note we await the latest guidance from AGB and will be updating ours these are available). Sanitiser and wipes are available in the loos and you should keep your own target face and pins in your car (replacements are still available in the usual place).
While we have been in lockdown quite a number of people have taken to walking in the area around the field and in some cases have taken to using the area behind the targets on the far side of the ditch this area forms part of our overshoot. We will have placed signs to indicate this area should not be used by walkers. Please take care of anyone that strays into this area while you are shooting. Should you spot anyone, stop shooting and if necessary politely point out that this is not an area for public use.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org is you want them to be recorded.
Stay Safe & Well.

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 Archery beginner 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.
