We shoot in a large field at Kingston Rugby Club, just off the Hook Road in Chessington, behind King Edward's Recreation Ground, see maps below. This a private site and allows us the freedom to shoot up to 100 yards all year round. We cater for recurve, barebow, longbow and compound archers and in the summer we often shoot full distance rounds of 144 arrows such as a York round or a World Archery 1440 round starting at 90m.
Not just archery, there is a real club atmosphere and on Saturday mornings we serve bacon butties, sausage baps, cakes and hot drinks all year round.
For social functions, such as the AGM and our Christmas party we use the fantastic bar at Kingston Rugby Club.
