Whether you're a total beginner or have been shooting for years, there is something for everyone at NTU Archery.
NTU Archery attend regular competitions throughout the year both indoor and outdoor, in both university leagues such as BUTTS (Birmingham University Toxophily and Toucan Society) and BUCS, to other county leagues consisting of other county clubs. We aim to ensure that every member who wants to attend these gets the chance too, allowing those newer archers to shoot alongside our experienced ones. Outside of target archery, we also give the options of doing other styles of archery competitions, such as clouts and field.
During at least one of our sessions a week we have access to Steve Attwood, who is a level 2 coach with over 40 years of experience. Steve is an enthusiastic coach, having passion for the club and helps in other areas such as equipment maintenance. The coaching aspect is completely optional, so those who wish to shoot just for fun or do not want to be coached do not have to be.
Our training sessions take place at Lee Westwood Sports Centre at Clifton Campus:
Monday 21:00 - 22:30
Thursday 17:30 - 20:30
Saturday 17:00 - 20:00
Archery doesn’t have to mean a big, long-term commitment, we run regular Play for Fun sessions that focus on making sport sociable, inclusive and enjoyable.
There is no requirement to join the club, all sessions must be booked in advance on the NTU Sport App.
