Archery is a sport based on shooting arrows from a bow towards a target. Points are awarded when the target is hit, more points are given the closer to the centre the arrow is.
Newark Castle Archers
Newark Castle Archers is a newly formed Archery Club who shoot within Newark. The aim of the club is to promote Archery in the district and encourage participation in the sport. We welcome anyone who has an interest in taking up the sport and anyone who is currently a member of other Archery organisations.
For a start, we are only able to offer Target Archery as our current venue does not allow for Field Archery as well. This may be looked at as part of the long term future of the club.
