Archery in the UK

Archery in the UKArchery in the UK is organised around clubs, counties and regions, with each playing its part in the development of archers. Clubs provide beginners with courses, and many run their own competitions. The counties and regions also run championships and provide routes for progression through coaching and squads.Archery GB is the National Governing Body and provides the infrastructure such as membership services, web site and magazine. It also has a performance unit delivering services to development and elite squads and teams for junior, senior and disabled archers, and is supported by national agencies such as UK Sport.

As a member, you will be able to access a number of benefits according to your need and wishes. All archers are supported by their clubs and by Archery GB, and, should they wish, will receive support from county to national level, that will give them the opportunity to compete for an Olympic medal, like Simon Terry who is pictured above.
