About Keyworth Archers


We formed Keyworth Archers at the end of 2012. Assistance in setting up the club was provided by the Nottinghamshire Archery Society, Councillor John Cottee, and Archery GB. Getting the club up and running quickly meant bringing in experience from other clubs; coaches Dave Seymour and Mike Thomason provided invaluable help in training our first members.

Since then, the club has grown to a fairly stable size, and we have both Level 1 and Level 2 coaches. We have members of all ages and levels of ability.


The club's aims are:

  1. To introduce people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to the sport of archery, and to provide coaching and support to archers as they progress.
  2. To provide a supportive, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We're definitely more about fun than athletic performance!
  3. To be responsive to the ideas, ambitions and concerns of our members, and to give members as much of a voice as possible in the running of the club.


Keyworth Archers is a friendly community archery club that is particularly welcoming to new archers. We try to be supportive of our members' aims, whether they are to shoot competitively, to socialise, or just to relax with a bit of archery after a busy week. Archers who wish to develop their skills can take advantage of the free coaching we offer. We hold a couple of social events each year, and meet for archery in Keyworth two or three times a week.
