Welcome to the Aire Valley Archers.
Aire Valley Archers is a target archery club with over 200 members. Our members shoot the three main styles of bow: Recurve, Compound and Traditional (Longbow and Barebow).
Shooting is available all year round at our permanent year-round outdoor facility in the stunning setting of St Ives Country Park, Bingley. During the winter, we also have an indoor facility at Knowle Mill, Keighley, which is available between October and March at set times on specific days of the week.
We run beginners archery courses during the spring/summer months, which are led by our Archery GB qualified coaches, where people of all ages and abilities can learn how to shoot a recurve bow. Club members are encouraged to attend regular club nights, competitions and fun events, as well as social events. Occasionally, we also hold fun ‘have a go’ days: which gives people a chance to shoot a few arrows for a small fee.
