Archery is a fun, inclusive sport that anybody of any age, size or fitness level can take part in, and Oxford University Company of Archers is open to new members every year. Whether you are new to the sport or an old hand, you will be more than welcome! We actively encourage both those able-bodied and with disabilities to give it a go.
We are known as one of the best clubs on the student circuit, always doing well in the most competitive regional student league in the country (the BUTTS League), and often ranking highly in national-level university competitions in recent years – even winning some of them! We strive to provide good facilities, equipment and training programmes to uphold the high standard of archery in Oxford. If you have shot before and want to improve, or if you are a novice who wants to get competitive and win some cool stuff, you’re definitely coming to the right place!
If you do not want to compete, you can still enjoy the social aspects of the club. You will make new friends by attending regular socials, termly drinks and a range of other exciting activities (recently featuring training camps and a rowing taster!) to help you bond with the rest of the club. Of course, we do encourage you to train, too, because archery itself is a very enjoyable activity that we are sure you will enjoy, whatever your level of skill and commitment.
We hope you want to join us, whether as a novice or an experienced archer. Look out for us at the Freshers’ Fair or drop us an email. Details of our session times and contact details for the committee can be found here as well.
See you soon!
The Committee for 2018-2019
