Welcome to Bowmen of Petersfield

We are a friendly and enthusiastic target archery club based in the Hampshire town of Petersfield. We shoot throughout the year at The Petersfield School, with a 100 yard range on the school playing fields in summer and a 20 yard range in the Sports Hall in the winter. Our members come from across East Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey and we have recurve, barebow, compound and longbow archers shooting with us.

All of our shooting sessions are open to club members and visitors from other clubs with the appropriate Archery GB affiliation. We run beginners courses several times a year and we pride ourselves on encouraging archery at all levels.

If you would like to join us, or if you want to find out whether Archery is the sport for you, then please come along and meet us or email us for more information.

Affiliated to Archery GB, Hampshire Archery Association and Southern Counties Archery Society. We are an Archery GB On-Target Community Archery Club

Outdoor Shooting

Outdoor shooting is on the grass playing field in the far north east of the school site. Access to the shooting line is across the tennis/netball courts and via the small gate closest to the school boundary fence. Please do not go onto the grassed area from any other route once the archery range has been set up.
There is no access onto the school site from the Tesco footpath after normal school hours.


Indoor Shooting

Indoor shooting is in the school sports hall which is the large building directly opposite the main entrance into the school site. The entrance to the sports hall is on the left side, facing the main school building.


Please observe the speed limit signs at all times, and exercise great care when driving on the site. Please park considerately and do not block any access routes.

Please note we are not a school club, nor do we have any connection with the school other than as a long term hirer of their facilities.
