For those unsure about wanting to join our club and take up archery but have always wanted to try shooting a bow and arrow, then this is another opportunity.
On the 22nd August during our morning shooting session we have set aside an area for non-members to have a go of shooting a recurve bow. You’ll have a dozen arrows under the instruction of either a coach or an experienced archer.
The cost is £10. During the session you’ll be able to talk to the club members and find out about this unique sport.
Corus (Deeside) Archery Club has been in Shotton for over 50 years.
We have gone by several names during that time including John Summers and British Steel Archers.
We have been on the current grounds at Rowley’s Drive since it was used as British Steel’s Sports and Social Club, when the company helped sustain the club whilst we didn’t charge membership fees to British Steel employees.
When British Steel was sold to Corus, we became Corus (Deeside). Since then Corus has cut ties with the club but we retain the name until we see the need to change it (and we find a fitting replacement).
We have always supported our archers, some of whom have gone on to tournament winning careers shooting for county and for Wales.
As advised by Archery GB (see link below), and in the best interest of everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing, our club has decided to suspend all indoors and outdoors activities until further notice.
The Indoor Portsmouth March 29th 2020 and the Easter Monday Shoot April the 13th have been cancelled.
Until otherwise communicated, the following activities will not take place:
Sunday shooting in Coleg Cambria (Connah’s Quay)
Thursday shooting at the scouts hut (Connah’s Quay)
Sunday and Wednesday shoot in Shotton
Any have a go session
Any Beginner’s course
