Forest Bowmen is a well established Field Archery club of some 17 years, and we also existed for more than 20 years before that under a different name.
The club is located in Codnor, Derbyshire and covers approximately 27 acres of firmly established woodland of varied terrain, which is usually set out with a course of at least 36 permanent targets.
Because the woods are privately owned we are able to offer our members the opportunity to shoot on any day at times that suit them, throughout the year.
In addition to an interesting and challenging course, we also provide two practice areas with safety nets used for warming up, setting up bows and for training prospective members.
We are now able to offer the use of our newly established Air Rifle range all inclusive in the current membership price. The course is outdoor and over approximately 40 meters. Please note, no guns requiring a firearms licence are permitted.
The centre of the club comprises a small clubhouse surrounded by ample parking facilities, with portaloo toilets and storage facilities also close by.
Many of our members are long established archers who are always happy to provide advice and guidance to the new member - or to help with excuses for the occasional missed shot!
New members are always welcome whether they wish to shoot competitively or simply for their own pleasure.
Club days are Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am till 1.00pm.
We are happy to take bookings for special events such as birthdays, corporate games, and activity days.
The club is a member of the Association of Field Archery Clubs.
