We are one of the few archery clubs in Cornwall who are fortunate enough to own our shooting field. This is only a couple of miles from the popular beach at Portreath, and our members have exclusive access to this facility any day of the year. During winter we also shoot indoors, once a week (currently in the Sports Hall at Pool Academy). Click here for directions to our shooting venues. The club incorporates both a junior section and a disabled section. We currently have about 80 members shooting Olympic (recurve), Compound and Longbow bows. Some members are just interested in archery as a recreational sport, others are more competitively minded and work hard to achieve higher levels of personal performance. In the past, some of our members have shot at national and international levels, and in most years we have members in the Devon & Cornwall County team. We run beginner courses every year in Spring (and subject to demand / coach availability over summer as well). We also host a number of tournaments each year which range from relatively low key events suitable for those just beginning competitive archery through to World Record Status events, including for the first time last year (2014) the Devon and Cornwall Archery Society Outdoor Annual Championships.

Club History Redruth Archers was formed in 1975 and since then has introduced many people to all forms of Archery. Starting with 8 members the club has grown to an average membership of around 75. Club members have shot at all levels of competition from inter-club to international and always support tournaments run throughout the region. After shooting at various venues, including Redruth School, the club settled at the ground on the Portreath Road. We are continually upgrading the facilities available to all members, but it all has to be paid for by the members, and to maintain, repair or replace items all adults are expected to help raise funds through the various methods used.
