The Club meets to shoot virtually every Sunday from 9am to 1pm (12:30pm indoors).
From November to March the Club shoots are mainly indoors (Sports Hall) and from April to October mainly outdoors (Range). Usually there are additional evening shoots held during the summer months.

The membership of Six Villages Archery Club includes all affiliation fees to national (GNAS/Archery GB), regional (SCAS) and county (SCAA) bodies. There is a small additional "shooting fee" that members pay each time they shoot.

Although we are only a small club, we are fortunate to have two coaches. Both are GNAS/Archery GB qualified County Coaches. Both are available for help, instruction and equipment tuning.

External Competitions

There is no pressure to do so but a number of members take part in various tournaments around the County and beyond. We are also probably one of the smallest Clubs in the country to hold our own tournament each year on the first Sunday in July.

Internal Competitions

The Club has an on-going "Round of the Month" (RotM) competition for both the indoor and outdoor seasons. There is a RotM roughly once a month depending on how it fits in with the rest of the Club's calandar. The Records Officer choses the round to be shot with archers choosing the appropriate distance for the outdoor rounds. Handicap-adjusted scores are used to allow all members to take part, regardless of bow type or ability. Each archers best adjusted scores are added up to decide the winner each season.

The September RotM is slightly different. The range is hired all day for the Club to hold the Mick Osbourne Memorial Tournament. Mick was a well liked and respected member of the Club and we compete for the Mick Osbourne Memoral Trophy. Again handicap adjusted scores are used to allow any member of the Club to win.
