With ArcheryGB supplying Guidance on shooting while maintain the government's safety rules on outdoor sport, Deben Archery Club are preparing to begin shooting again, as soon as Trinty Park (our Landlord) think it is safe to do so.

UPDATE - 27 March 2020

It is with sadness that I would like to inform you that our club shoots have been suspended until further notice.

It hasn't been an easy decision, but with COVID-19 virus, it is a necessary one. We are doing this in line with Archery GB and with the government, also to protect our archers health. This is to reduce all non-essential contact with others.

We will be keeping an eye on the situation like every organisation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to answer your questions.
