ABOUT US

Based in North Devon, we provide archery events for all occasions.  If you are a school looking for a new sporting challenge for your pupils or an exciting tie-in for your project on William the Conqueror we can come to you, 

bringing all the equipment and expertise needed.

If you are organising a village fair, a wedding or a corporate event we can provide the resources, time and skills needed to make your event a success.  

If you are on holiday in North Devon or are organising a stag or hen do and want to try something a little different then we can come to you, dependent on venue suitability, or we can arrange a venue.  

If you are organising a birthday party with limited indoor space we can still provide you with an option, using our Archery GB Arrows kit.

The earliest evidence for archery as a form of warfare was in ancient Egypt, as long ago as 2800 BCE, when re-curved bows, made of tendon, horn and wood, were fired from horseback or from atop a chariot.  The modern sport of archery, which is sadly lacking in chariot mounted events, probably dates from 14th Century England,when all English men were obliged, by royal decree, to practice every Sunday and holiday.  Many of the current styles of shooting, such as clout, can trace their existence to this period.  The most popular style of archery currently practised in this country is target archery which, confusingly, unlike field archery, is usually practised in a field.  Indoors, outdoors, in a field or a wood, in rain or sunshine, thousands of archers enjoy their sport every weekend up and down the country.
