The club is in the process of relocating, however this is taking longer than expected. As a consequence we have been able to extend our access to the Walled Garden at weekends through to the end of March 2024.
Beginners’ courses will resume early in 2023, if you want to take up archery then please use the “Contact us” page to provide your contact details, and we will be in touch.
We will accept new members if they have completed an authorised Archery GB course within the last 2 years.
Wilford Bowmen are one of the longest established clubs in Nottinghamshire being able to trace the roots of the club back to ROF Archers, founded in 1948.
We shoot at our own ground in Wollaton Park. We can cater for all bow types (except crossbows) and standards from beginner through to major competition archers. The coaches in the club cover a similar range of experience, right up to shooting for Great Britain.
We shoot all year round on Sundays with members arriving at about 10.00 to help set up the range and get their equipment ready for a prompt start at 10:30am. There is also a coaching/training session on Saturdays from about 10.30 am.
During the lighter months we shoot on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6pm or earlier depending on keyholder availability and during the colder, darker months we shoot indoors in the Small Hall at Rushcliffe Spencer Academy on Saturday afternoons (4.00-6.30), this venue is only available to club members.
Every May we host our annual open competition, which is a Record Status event and is used as part of the Nottinghamshire Team selection. We also host one leg of the Nottinghamshire League, which is an informal series of shoots encouraging friendly rivalry between clubs and which gives the perfect opportunity for newer archers to gain experience outside of their own club.
