- About Us
Riverside Archery Club is a small friendly club of junior and senior archers aged between 10yrs and 80+yrs, with a wide range of abilities. We are based in the North-East of England at Thorpe Academy (Ryton), where we meet every Sunday. We normally have 2 shooting sessions on a Sunday, the first starting at 10am and the second at 1:30pm, members can choose to shoot either or stay all day for both.
In the Winter we shoot indoors in the school sports hall and then move outdoors onto the school field for the Summer. During the Summer we also shoot on a Tuesday evening providing the weather and light allows.
For anyone who is interested in trying out this enjoyable sport, we usually run a couple of 6 week beginner's courses during the 'Indoor' season, led by one of our qualified coaches. These courses give all the basic instruction on technique and safety standards so that the budding archer can progress in the sport with confidence - and hopefully much personal success!
