Welcome to the Gipping Valley Archers website.
The club is hosting an Open Field Shoot at Haughley Park, Stowmarket, Suffolk.
30th June 2024, 12 marked WA Field - Shot twice - Non-Record status.
The Club has some interesting and entertaining activities planned this year. We have the use of three ranges allowing us to shoot up to 100Y/90M, a nursery range for our training events and new targets giving us more capacity.
We have a full diary of activities ranging from regular classification rounds for the winter and summer. Our 252 and 300 award schemes will continue. New this year is Field Archery and have several events planned, we will run several clout shoots as well as our traditional fun shoots at Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.
We have a new to archery training programme, offering our three-hour Taster Sessions for those wishing an archery experience. Then for those looking to take up archery and possibly join a club we have our 12-hour Beginners Courses, 3 hours over consecutive Sundays. If you want to gift these to someone, we have vouchers available for both.
We also plan to run events to help existing club members improve their archery.
We hold a weekly club day on Sundays from 10:00am until 4pm during British Summer Time and 3pm during the winter (November to March). The Club runs a number of activities to keep shooting interesting - Club Calendar
The Archery Range is open seven days a week, during the winter it's 8am to dusk and in the summer Weekdays 8am to 7:30pm, Weekends and Bank Holidays 8am to 6pm. See Range Rules.
