Bowmen of the Tors is a Plymouth based archery club shooting three times a week at Notre Dame School in Derriford.
We’re a small club with a big personality, boasting a huge range of members from 10 year old juniors to our honorary members who set the club up some 40 years ago. We are lucky enough to have access to both indoor and outdoor facilities all year round, with the capability of shooting up to 100 yards outdoors. As well as the use of some woodland near Tamerton Foliot for field archery.
Our coaching team run 3 beginner courses each year and are on hand to offer support and advice to all members, shooting a range of bows from recurve and compound, to traditional the English longbow.
Annually, we run two tournaments – our Agincourt Shoot which is a longbow fun shoot with Western rounds in the morning and a fun shoot at the French themed targets in the afternoon. We also run an Open tournament with York, Hereford and Bristol rounds in the morning and Nationals in the afternoon.
Our Committee of volunteers meet regularly to run and develop the club – we are always open to new ideas and people getting involved!
We have achieved the ‘Community’ Club specialisation, and as such strive to bring easy access to the sport of archery to as many people as possible. We run regular Beginners Courses and regularly run ‘have a go’ sessions at various events around the community.
We are also proud to be a part of Archery GB’s OnTarget programme, doing our part to help promote and grow the sport at a grass roots level.
