Deer Park Archers Limited is based in Shurdington, Gloucestershire and covers the surrounding area. Establish in 1995 it has developed from providing have-a-go archery sessions for Guides and Brownies to an award winning development club for junior and senior archers of all abilities. The purchase of it’s own ground in 2014 provides facilities for target, field, clout archery disciplines. We have over 200+ members (40% are juniors), shooting a range of bow styles from the high-tech Compound to the traditional English Longbow.
Our aim is simply to help everyone to achieve their full potential! That may be recreational or performance level, it applies to archers, volunteers, coaches and officials and this aim targets both technical and personal development. This aim applies to all our members and to all those we interact with in our community! We aspire to be more than just a sports club!
We pride ourselves in the quality of our coaching support, work in the community and involvement with our Governing Body. We believe that being a club means just that! It is not just about our sport, it is about the social activities, about learning together, losing and winning together, giving and receiving and being part of a larger community and valuing every member for what they are and what they can be!
