Club Bio – Houghton Archers

We are a friendly archery club based in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne and Wear.

We welcome everyone, whether you are a seasoned pro fresh from competing with Team GB or an absolute beginner who thinks a pressure button is something you push when it all gets too much.

We were formed on the 31st August 2012 and although we are relatively new we have a good membership base and a good mix of abilities. We have a committee who are dedicated to making Houghton Archers a successful and friendly environment. Whether you want to come and just shoot for the fun of it or wish to start competing against archers from other clubs across the UK, then our coaches are more then happy to help you to try and achieve the level you wish.

We shoot at indoors at Houghton Sports and Wellness Centre on Monday evenings from6pm – 8pm, and at Kepier School on Friday evenings from 7pm – 9pm.

We also have an outdoor venue at Houghton Colliery Welfare Cricket Club, Leyburn Grove.
