York Archers society

As well as being a vibrant and expanding modern society, York Archers has a long and distinguished history as as one of the oldest clubs still in existence in the UK, dating as far back as 1833.


Our home is at the Hopgrove Playing Fields on the Malton Road, within the outer ring road of the city of York. The site gives us exclusive use of a shooting field that is long enough to shoot Clout distances (180 yards), plus unrestricted access to our shooting ranges in a safe and controlled area, along with a custom-built clubhouse and storage space. During the cold winter months, we move indoors to shoot in the sports hall at Sandburn Hall in Flaxton.

The club provides a competitive and social environment, and we pride ourselves on our friendly and inclusive culture that supports all levels of archer, from complete beginners to the more experienced.
