  • About the Club

    North Cheshire Bowmen (and its Junior and Disabled sections) is a club of about 140 archers based in Knutsford, just to the south of Manchester, Active Cheshire logoEngland. It is affiliated to the Cheshire Archery Association, and in turns the English Northern Counties Archery Society and Archery GB (also known as the Grand national Archery Society). It is proud to be actively participating in ArcheryGB's new On Target scheme for club development, and to receive support from Active Cheshire.

    North Cheshire Bowmen Club Championships 2013The club was founded in 1950, and aims to promote the practice and history of archery. Its current members' principal interest is in target archery, but it does also include those who shoot in the field, clout and flight disciplines. Most styles of equipment are catered for, particularly the  Recurve bow, Compound bow and the traditional English Longbow. There are however no facilities for crossbow shooting.

    Club activities include introductory training courses run several times a year. The club also runs a range of competitions for all levels of ability; friendly matches with other clubs in the locality, and participation in postal and internet based league matches against other clubs. A general guide to archery may be downloaded by clicking here (995kb in pdf format).

    Formal outdoor practice sessions are usually held at Knutsford Sports Club (see Knutsford Sports Club) from 7pm during weekday evenings (excluding Tuesdays), and during the daytime on Sundays in the summer. Informal practice may take place outdoors throughout the week provided at least 2 senior archers are present, except on Saturdays when the cricket club is using the field.

    We are also able to shoot indoors in our new Indoor Archery Range at any time of day (or night), subject only to key-holder access.

    Please note that we have re-located to Mereheath Road, Knutsford  from our old home at BRUFC, Clay Lane, Timperley.
