We are a target archery club based at the fabulous Manor Park multi-sports club in Malvern, Worcestershire. We have our own dedicated archery ground, that allows us to shoot all year round, with distances of up to 100 yards. Malvern Archers were founded in 1905 and have been shooting in the shadow of the beautiful Malvern Hills for more than a century. We are a friendly archery club enjoying all the social, physical and competitively challenging aspects of our sport. Many of our members enjoy archery as a relaxing and fun way to unwind from the everyday stress of the modern world. If you are more interested in archery of a competitive nature, we offer the opportunity to be involved in local and national tournaments. Many members of the club, both senior and junior, participate at county, national and even at international levels.
Malvern Archers is affiliated to the County of Worcestershire Archery Association, the West Midlands Archery Society, and the Grand National Archery Society (Archery GB).
If you fancy having a go at archery please contact us for dates of our next beginners course. Distances range from 10 – 100 yards! It all sounds easy…
Our outdoor shooting field at the Manor Park Club allows for ranges up to 100yds and is available throughout the year. All Imperial and metric distances are marked, and the ground can be used at any time (unless the groundsman is working), subject to the usual safety rules being adhered to.
From April to September, mains water is available for making tea, etc., and there is a toilet in our club hut adjacent to the field. In the summer, Club nights are Tuesday and Thursday evenings, when most active members come to practice or shoot rounds.
The general facilities of the Manor Park Club, including the bar, are available to all members, who are de facto members of the Manor Park Sports Club. There is also a meeting room and kitchen which we can use for Club general meetings and to provide refreshments for visiting teams.
During the winter (October to March inclusive), we use the sports facilities at Malvern St James School, the famous “Edinburgh Dome”, from 6.30 to 9:00 pm on Friday evenings. The maximum range available is 25 m, and all targets are backed by a safety net to prevent damage to arrows missing the targets. We also shoot on Sunday mornings 10:00 – 12:00.
