Cancellation of Session

On Saturday 14th September the Tour of Britain Cycle Race will be passing through the Borough, specifically coming down Mottram Road, just outside the club ground. This means that the road will be closed to traffic from early in the morning until sometime in the afternoon after the race has passed through, which means access to the club via motor vechicle will be impossible during this period.

Therefore, it has been decided to CANCEL the Junior Club's session on that day.

The next junior seesion will be on Saturday 21st of September, at the usual time.

Change of Session

Due to the Novice Tournament being run this coming Saturday afternoon, 17th of August, the usual Junior Saturday morning session will be shortened.

Instead of the arranged archery round, this session will now be for practice only, and all shooting must end around 12:30 pm.

Any juniors, or seniors, with less than 2 years archery experience can enter the Novice Tournament on Saturday afternoon. Should any junior filling this criteria wish to compete in this tournament in the afternoon they must not attend the Junior session in the morning!

Having any practice in the morning means that they will be unable to shoot the usual 6 Sigher Arrows prior to scoring in the Novice Round.

School Holiday Shooting

Should any juniors wish to shoot, other than on a Saturday morning, during the Summer School Holidays it has been arranged to hold a sessions on Tuesday afternoons on the following dates:

  • July 30th
  • August 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th

Juniors should arrive at approximately 1:00 pm. Shooting will commence at 1:30 pm and will end around 3:30 pm.

As with the Saturday sessions, there is no need to book ahead of time to attend, if you wish to shoot, just turn up.

Junior Club

The Junior Club sessions start again this coming Saturday, 12th January, from 10:00 am until 1.30 pm. Seniors please be aware that Saturday shooting should be available to you from about 2.00 pm onwards.
