What is a branch society?
Sutton Bonington branch societies and sports are new for the 2019/20 academic year. These are pre-existing main campus clubs with strong links to SB aiming to encourage more SB based students to join our societies and ultimately increase our involvement on the campus.
Archery is currently based at University Park, shooting indoors at DRSV during term 1 and 2 moving to shoot outdoors at Sutton Bonington in March/April (weather dependent). After Easter, outdoor shooting continues at Sutton Bonington until the end of term three and throughout summer for anyone who can still make it.
Taster sessions and engage at Sutton Bonington
Unfortunately there are no more taster or Engage sessions on Sutton Bonington during term 1; we do however have a couple of Engage (try it sessions) coming up on main campus so if this is something you'd be interested in please check out that section of our website!
Look out for us on Sutton Bonington during terms two and three as we will have outdoor Engage sessions again as soon as the weather allows!
Since the archery club shoots at Sutton Bonington during the summer we hope to be a relatively easy society for the April cohort to access. We will have a few taster sessions (dates tbc) that will be available to the April cohort nearer the time!
In order to do archery at any club in the UK you need an Archery GB membership which is obtained by doing a beginners course at any AGB affiliated archery club.
Unfortunately, we don't currently have the resources to run a second beginners course during summer for the April cohort (we do run one in October). However anyone wishing to try archery for the first time who can attend a beginners course elsewhere and bring proof of their Archery GB membership/completion of a beginners course would be welcome to join the club and shoot with us!
For anyone with a previous or current archery GB membership or beginners course completion/one year plus experience please message our Facebook (@UoNArchers) or email us (email@example.com) to find out how you can join us.
