Where is the Club Meeting - Summer

The Club is now Meeting at Bob's Meadow


Shooting During the summer months from April until October, we shoot in a large field near the Suffolk Showground (Trinity Park),  on Bucklesham Road, Ipswich (see overhead view). Entrance to the shooting field is via a locked gate (New Gate being used due to Covid) so it's important to contact us so we can arrange to meet you and let you in. There's a one or two week period each year when the field isn't available because the Suffolk Show is in progress, other than that the field is available to members to shoot every other day. Most members of the club shoot on Tuesday (5:30pm until it gets dark), Friday and Sunday mornings from about 09:30 to 13:00 (but might be later, depending on who's there). Except for match days, shooting tends to be very informal, although a number of our members are keen to compete recognised rounds, either just for the experience or to help them on their way to improved classification and handicaps. There's no compulsion to shoot a round, and if there's space on the line there's no reason why archers can't practice whilst a match is in progress.
