Welcome to the Burton Constable Company of Bowmen. Established 1964.
We shoot at Burton Constable Hall, surely one of the most spectacular backdrops in the world for an archery club.
The club meets regularly throughout the season and has competitions for members every month throughout the summer. We are very fortunate to have one Level 2 Archery GB qualified coach and two Level 1 Archery GB qualified coaches at the club, who run courses for beginner’s and improvers as well as more advanced coaching sessions, as required by the members, for all disciplines. We also provide coaching for the Junior Club members.
We currently have more than one hundred members with active Senior, Junior & Disabled sections and our members shoot the three main styles of bow: Longbow, Recurve & Compound, although Compound is restricted due to multi use of the field that is long enough to shoot it safely.
If you are interested in beginners’ lessons, visiting a shoot or coaching, please get in touch with us via the Contact us page.
The club holds an open Medieval Longbow Shoot in June and the East Riding Competition Shoot in August, when Archery Clubs from all over the Yorkshire region come together.
There is also a Field Archery shoot held on the last Saturday of each month, in a field near to Burton Constable Hall, run by Tony Collier (our club Safety Officer) who will show you everything you need to know about Field shooting. Contact Tony via the Contact us page.
Field archery is an experience in hunting game for food, as our ancestors did. Check out our gallery page to see some of our regular field shoot archers. Come and join us, it’s fun & also challenging.
Next Field Shoot is: Saturday 29th April 2017 at 12:30
