Get Started

Scottish Archery has a diverse number of clubs including junior, school clubs and clubs for those with a disability throughout the whole of Scotland.

Archery is a fun and rewarding sport, one of the few that can be enjoyed by everyone - we have a saying that anyone from 8 to 80 can do archery - we have members who are younger and older than that.  It is possibly the only sport where beginners can compete next to an Olympian! 

It is a very social sport and provides the opportunity to join a club, shoot in a social setting and participate, should you want to, in friendly club and inter-club competitions (indoor in winter, outdoor in summer). 

If you are looking for more of a sporting challenge archery competition ranges from Club level through Home Nation level right up to International.  There are Scottish archers appearing regularly on Archery GB Squads and who shoot for Great Britain including one who is currently training for the 2021 Paralympics in Tokyo.
