About Bronte Archers
Bronte Archery Club has been in existence since 1948. The Club has a thriving membership, with members past and present having represented both county and country.
The club has archers of all ages and abilities, shooting modern recurve and compound bows, as well as the traditional longbow. Members of the club also participate in other disciplines of the sport including Clout and Field Archery.
New members are always welcome and encouraged to enjoy shooting whether their interest is for fun or competition.
Located at Rawdon Meadows, this all year round Club has access to excellent outdoor shooting facilities as well as 2 spacious indoor facilities for coaching, equipment set-up and practice.
The Club is affiliated to several governing bodies:
