The University of Chester’s Archery club welcomes everyone with all, whether your new to the sport or have had years of experience, you can find something for you! Our weekly training sessions are designed to allow everyone to develop their archery skills by building on your existing knowledge with the help of fellow members and trained coaches. This year we are supporting the charity Mind. The charity aims to help those struggling with mental health. Throughout the academic year there will be a number of charity events to help support those in need.
All members have the opportunity to compete in both friendly games with neighbouring Universities or in larger competitions such as: BUCS, NEUAL and Varsity. Members from our team have even been able to compete at national finals. Those new to competition work closely with experienced members and coaches to ensure the best possible experience at competitions.
The club can offer a great distraction from the everyday stress found at University by offering a constructive release. Our committee team works closely with every member and coaches to create a supportive atmosphere whereby everyone feels valued and welcome. Why not join Archery today and experience a free taster session and become a member of a quickly expanding society!

“I went to the taster sessions just to have a go but stayed for the friendly atmosphere and amazing friends that I’ve made over the past two years. Archery has enabled me to meet loads of new people and do something different.” - Hiran Maher
“I joined Archery to have a go at sports I’d never thought of doing, but now I can’t see my time at University without it. It has instilled a discipline and confidence in me that has allowed me to step up and become a committee member in my second year and then Captain in my third year. Archery has allowed me to meet amazing people and to make friends for life!” - Sophie Billingham
