When & Where
Norton Archers is a friendly, dynamic club on Teesside with members who shoot for both pleasure and competition. We were named Club of the Year at the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council Club, Volunteer and Coach Awards 2011 within our first year of existence, and continue to go from strength to strength; in March 2013 we were presented with our first national award, the ontarget Innovation in Archery Award, and in May 2014 our Head Coach Dave Kelsey received the ontarget Volunteer of the Year Award!
We are open to all archers who are Archery GB affiliated members (please email to let us know if you want to come along to a session and bring your Archery GB card with you), and if you would like to take up archery for the first time we also run 5-session beginners' courses; these are a requirement to coach you in shooting safely before joining any archery club.
We shoot at Norton Sports Charity (foremerly Norton (Teesside) Sports Centre)
