Exeter Company of Archers
If you live in the Exeter area, your local target archery club is the Exeter Company of Archers. We are based at Exeter School where we shoot year-round - summer (outdoor), and winter (indoor) - and we welcome members of all ages and skills levels. We typically hold three shooting sessions per week, see Location for details.
The club has a number of coaches who are happy to offer assistance from advice on equipment and maintenance, to coaching etc., and many of our experienced archers are always happy to help with questions and advice.
Although many of our archers enjoy the sport for purely recreational purposes, we have a growing number of archers within the club who compete regularly at competitions both in the South West, and further afield. A number of members also enjoy the related discipline of field archery - which normally takes place in wooded or mixed terrain, and offers quite a different type of challenge to target archery.
The club plays host to two major regional tournaments during the summer season - the DCAS Grand Day (May) and the GWAS Intercounties Tournament (September) both of which attract the top archers from all parts of the region.
The club is affiliated to Archery GB (the trading name of GNAS - the Grand National Archery Society), the Grand Western Archery Society (GWAS), and the Devon & Cornwall Archery Society (DCAS).
Archery GB is a member of the World Archery Federation (WA) - the International governing body for the sport of archery.
Due to current government guidelines, we are unable to return to the school sports hall for the indoor season. Therefore we will only be able to shoot outdoors, on Sundays for the foreseeable future. Please be prepared for the possibility that in the case of adverse weather, we may have to cancel at short notice.
Please remember that you are only able to shoot at the club by registering and using our booking system.
