About Cleve Archers

Cleve Archers was founded in 1960 to practice and promote the sport of archery in accordance with the rules of the governing body for the sport, the Grand National Archery Society (now Archery GB).

The club is also affiliated to the regional organisation, Grand Western Archery Society (GWAS).

Cleve Archers is wholly run by volunteers and is one of the largest clubs in the county and a member of Gloucestershire Archery Society.

On the 27 February 2015 Cleve Archers became a Private Limited Company under the Companies Act 2006. Company Number 9463743. The Committee have also taken steps to become a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). We held a successful EGM to agree all the necessary steps to transfer the assets of the club to the company, including the new field at Moorend, in line with HMRC guidelines, and as a Company Limited by Guarantee provide improved protection for all our members.

Cleve Archers practice all year round at the following locations: Up Yonder, Bury Hill, Moorend, Hambrook and Chipping Sodbury Sports Complex at Chipping Sodbury school. We also and hold several tournaments in the local area.

Outside the Club

We are interested in offering our services to the local community and schools and would appreciate contact details for the schools that you think would be suitable to run sessions or after school clubs. Running this type of session would very much depend on the funding stream available and a contribution from each participant.

Archery is a sport which helps develop concentration and coordination and gives a real sense of achievement.

Studies have shown that students who participated in archery, enjoyed school more, showed improvements in behaviour, attendance and achievement.

One of our intentions is to bring archery to you: an archery session can be run indoors or outdoors, in school gyms, sports halls and community halls or sports fields.

Archery is a popular sport and there are many Archery Clubs in the Southwest of England.

Archery is ideal for team building events or parties as well as a fun activity for a family or group of friends.

Archery does not exclude anyone on grounds of physical ability or fitness and can actually be beneficial in improving physical well being and is a great confidence booster.

Previous experience is not necessary to have an enjoyable day. We provide all equipment needed, and use lightweight bows ensuring that everyone can have a go.

Our coaches will help all participants get started and support them to shoot safely whilst having fun. We will be on hand throughout the event to offer support and advice for all aspiring Robin Hoods!
