Return to Archery – We’re ready!

Return to Archery – We’re ready!

Thank you for your patience whilst Ely Archers prepared for our return to archery.  We are now ready to welcome you back to Ely Archers to shoot. King’s School, Ely have kindly spent several days getting the Amherst Field ready for us.

We are following the Archery GB Phase One guidelines. Until restrictions are lifted, we will have to shoot with some restrictions in place, just like other sports who are now restarting.

One of the main rules is that we can only have one archer or household per target. As we have 10 targets, we have also had to create an online booking system. You must pre-book your one-hour session before arriving for archery practice.

Our first few sessions will really be a test of our procedures and to see what demand is like. So please bear with us, as some things may change.

These are baby steps and a way of getting back into archery. So please look upon them as a way of getting some fresh air and coming and practicing shooting your bow for an hour a couple of times a week.

Now please read the important guidelines and details on how we intend to run the sessions:

This document together with a risk assessment can also be found on our rules and policies page:

We plan to have our first shooting sessions on Sunday morning (7th June 2020).

Max 50 yards distance. When booking your distance, please think first. Remember you have not shot outside for a while – or at all for a while!

Booking is now open for Sunday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Bookings open a week in advance.

Please look in your email inbox (or junk folder) for an email from the club that contains the booking web link.

See you on the range!
