THE ARCHERY CLUB IS OPEN TO ALL!
Sessions are Free! (Donations welcome)
Established in 2008 through the goodwill of a group of volunteers. They wanted to ensure that this sport could be brought into the heart of our community.
The Friendship Cafe Archery Club has 3 qualified Archery leaders and 2 Coaches who between them run weekly sessions and also taster sessions at events and fundays.
If you would like us to run a session at your event or if you would like to arrange a private group session please contact us. Please note that external events are subject to a small charge, availability of our volunteers and a satisfactory risk assessment being completed.
So from the seed that was planted back in 2008 the Archery Club has grown from strength to strength. This due to the committment and extreme dedication from our volunteers who spend countless hours every week and behind the scenes to make sure that the club operates smoothly.
Our main Archery leader, Fazel Patel, also has many years of experience practicing the traditional ‘thumbring pull’ archery techniques as used for centuries by different eastern cultures. As well as being a qualified referee in Horseback Archery competitions, Fazl is also able to teach students who are interested, with different techniques that can be practiced safely on the ground for those who decide to pursue the highly skilled art of shooting whilst on horseback.
