Welcome to Bowmen of Petersfield. We are a friendly and enthusiastic target archery club based in the Hampshire town of Petersfield. We shoot throughout the year at The Petersfield School, with a 100 yard range on the school playing fields in summer and a 25m range in the Sports Hall in the winter. Our members come from across East Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey and we have recurve, barebow, compound and longbow archers shooting with us.

All of our shooting sessions are open to club members and visitors from other clubs with the appropriate Archery GB affiliation. We run beginners courses several times a year and we pride ourselves on encouraging archery at all levels.

If you would like to join us, or if you want to find out whether Archery is the sport for you, then please come along and meet us or email us for more information.

Boost Coaching Sessions Starting 17th November

Boost Logo

Bowmen of Petersfield are running some additional coaching sessions this winter and spring. This is a structured coaching programme specifically designed to help improving archers, and is part of the Boost Archery scheme from Archery GB.

Theses will be run on Friday evenings (7pm until 9pm) in the Gym at TPS (far end of the main school building) and we hope to run one session a month for the next few months. The first session is on Friday 17th November.
There will be a target fee of £2 per session.

The sessions are designed to be of most help to novice and improving archers, in fact anyone who has yet to reach a First Class classification. It doesn't matter how long you have been shooting, Juniors and Seniors are all welcome. So if you want to improve your archery then please contact us and come along!

The sessions will cover a range of topics, a mix of theory and practical, and will be run as group sessions with individual help available as required. Each session will cover different aspects of shooting as part of the overall programme and so it would be ideal if archers could attend all or most of the sessions planned over the coming months but we hope you will still benefit even if you can only make a few sessions.

The first three sessions are planned for:

  • Friday 17th November
  • Friday 15th December
  • Friday 5th January
Further dates will be organised for the spring and summer.

Please note that these additional sessions are for coaching only, and are not normal club target sessions so there won't be the opportunity to shoot other than as part of the coaching programme.

Shooting Dates and Indoor Shooting

Shooting dates have now been updated on the calendar and we have returned to indoor shooting on Tuesdays and Sundays. Indoor shooting is held in the sports hall at The Petersfield School. If you are unsure where this is, please email us and we can help you with directions.

Shooting indoors on a Tuesday is 7pm til 9pm. Sunday is 10am til 12 noon.
We kindly remind all members that with the darker evenings closing in, to be mindful of our school users and that there is a 5mph speed limit on the school grounds.
