Bowmen of St Mary’s are a Target Archery Club for Recurve, Compound, Barebow and Traditional Longbow.
Located at The Academy on Cranbrook Avenue, Hull, the club shoots all year round, using the large playing field for their outdoor shooting during the summer months April – September and the indoor hall for winter shooting October - April, with coaching and equipment set-up also being catered for all year round.
New members are welcomed and given the chance to try archery on one of our four taster sessions held in May each year followed by our archery lesson’s.
Archery can be challenging and rewarding whilst being fun and social, whatever your age you’re never too old to gain the mental and physical rewards, archers are encouraged to enjoy their shooting whether it be for fun or practicing for upcoming competitions, possibly even wining a few medals and trophies along the way.
