The 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, Barebow 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.

Formal outdoor practice sessions are usually held at Knutsford Sports Club (see Where to Find Us) 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.
