STOP PRESS: One of our club members has taken on a mission to raise money for MNDa, the Motor Neurone Disease charity. If you can help, please visit his website at mnd-ru-archery.com
A simple refresher session can soon get you back up and shooting.
We’d like to reassure you that our club and coaches follow Archery GB’s Covid-safe guidelines.
We’re ready to welcome you back to help you achieve your sporting ambitions in a socially distanced but fully supportive environment
Welcome to the online home of Griffin Archers.
Here at Griffin Archers, we are a community club based around our members, and are always open to welcoming new members to our Archery family. We offer an Archery GB affiliated club, where we practice and shoot at regular sessions. Everything from a social shoot to tournament preparation and time with our experienced coaches. We even have regular in-house competitions – some are novelty, some are more organised to help prepare for the competition experience. The club can offer “Have-a-Go” sessions within the community of Peterborough, and regular “Taster” sessions at our venue. This allows you to experience the sport before committing to go any further. It is our aim to bring equal opportunities within archery to all abilities and needs.
The club as our ‘Archery’ home
Our club experience is within our strong and inclusive family. Juniors, Seniors, those with special physical or educational needs, hidden disabilities – we just welcome you as a “Member”, and an “Archer”. Archery is very much a sport for all. It’s a totally personal journey. Come along and meet us for a taster session, see what it’s all about and how it can work best for you.
(Please check for COVID-19 updates and guidance on this matter. We try to put these on this page, and are happily talk to you. Use the contact form here to make initial contact).
Not sure you can do it?
Whether you’re a total beginner, a novice who has tried the sport a few times, or an experienced archer – we are happy to welcome you at the club. We have beginner courses, refresher courses and the experience to help you to join us, and become part of Griffin Archers.
Through our online home we hope to be able to promote the sport of archery and its benefits to overall fitness and health. Griffin Archers will always be accessible to all, and provide support, coaching and advice to any who need it. Contact us here
Alternatively, if you are a community group and would like us to come along and be part of your event, or even give an introduction to a different sport, please Contact us. We can come out to groups as long as there is the space for us to safely do so – we can discuss this with you. (Once it is recognised as safe to do so under COVID-19 guidelines).
Here at our Focus Centre home, we are lucky to have the ability to shoot both the indoor and outdoor seasons.
Inclusive Archery, a Sport with a difference
Griffin Archers encourages archery as an activity for all, and as more of us are being affected by mental Health conditions, we are keen to encourage everyone to find the original Zen. Many people find that archery provides an active and alternative form of simple meditation.
It is widely recognised that focussing on something can provide a relief and release from a wide range of conditions. This can range from simple stresses to very serious PTSD. The routine and rules of archery can give you structure, while the personal aspect of the sport allows those who need to find some “Me time” the perfect outlet.
As a club we are excited to promote archery as an “activity for all” regardless of age or ability. We are accessible, both indoors and out. Family-friendly; we encourage parents, carers, family and friends to come along. (Obviously, under the current guidelines, we must follow advice and rules regarding numbers of persons in one place and safe distance).
Want to be a part of the Griffin Archers family, but not shoot? We also have non-shooting associate membership available for anyone who wants to be part of the club as a volunteer or helper.
You will always find a warm welcome at Griffin Archers, regardless of how we meet you.
Our Coaching Team
Our coaching team brings a uniquely cohesive brand of support for all. They are all approachable and accessible, bringing their knowledge and experience directly to all our members. With specialist knowledge of many aspects of the sport they can work with archers of every ability. Their extensive experience is based around the safety and enjoyment of the sport. They support members who are performance or elite, but are just as happy on their knees chatting to a junior about aiming for a balloon on the target.
At Griffin Archers, we are proud to offer access to archery for ALL. We actively promote equality and inclusivity, and truly believe that everyone and anyone can find a benefit from archery.
