Shooting takes place every Sunday (from 10:00), Wednesdays (from 10:00) and Thursday evenings (from 4:30 to 8:30). Apart from set competition dates, archers can shoot whatever round they like or use the time to tune their equipment and shooting style without recording a score. Each month there are club competitions where targets are set up for a particular type of round, eg. Western, York, Albion, etc. Junior competitions are run alongside the senior ones. There is a good programme throughout the year with trophies, medals, prizes and raffles.
