Welcome to the official University of Brighton Archery Club page! We are open to anyone and everyone interested in and passionate about archery, whether you have yet to try it or have been shooting for years. Archery is an incredibly inclusive sport, and many people can participate in archery for fun or competitively, regardless of their disability. As a club we welcome anybody who wants to try archery, and our committee members and coach are able to advise you on disabled shooting should anyone have any questions.
We currently run club sessions indoors every Friday 13:00-15:00, and Sunday 15:00-19:00. Outdoor sessions are every Wednesday 7:30-12:00, and Sunday 12:00-17:00. We are based at the Falmer Sports Complex, Sports Centre, Brighton. BN1 9PH.
To join our club you need to have either passed our beginners course, or had previous archery experience. If you have had previous experience, one of our coaches will give you a brief assessment to ensure you are safe to join and shoot at our club. You will need to purchase a silver sportsfed card, currently priced at £70, and have Archery GB membership (which is something we will organise for you). If you have previous experience and are interested in joining, please send us a message before you come to any of our sessions.
We run beginners courses Sunday's from 5pm-7pm which last 5 weeks all through the year, which are organised through Parklife. These courses cost £20 and you will leave with a comprehensive knowledge of archery, and hopefully will join us in the club for weekly shooting!
In our club you can enjoy a friendly and sociably atmosphere, along with excellent quality coaching to bring you past the beginners stage and help you reach higher levels of skill. We welcome anyone who wants to shoot, and are completely inclusive to any disabled students who wish to shoot. We compete in BUCS both in our indoor and outdoor season, and are also part of SEAL (South East Archery League). All are welcome to join us regardless of whether they wish to compete or not.
Our committee currently consists of:
President - Ella Wilkinson
Secretary - Elizabeth Kellingley
Treasurer - Adam Cellmer
Equipment Officer - Dermot Crowley
Coach - Sabrina Varley
