About us

Welcome to Soar Valley Archers.  Our club has a rich and proud heritage of some thirty years standing. We are based in the beautiful village of Seagrave in Leicestershire.  We are privileged enough to also have the use an indoor facility which allows us to continue our activities throughout the winter months.

This last year has seen our membership nearly double which is great news for both the club and the sport of Archery. I am keen to encourage our Junior Members and we will be running 3 Beginners/new intake courses of six week duration throughout the year.  This gives us more control over providing enough training equipment and to monitor numbers more easily.

We have a varied membership ranging from 8 to 80 years of age and we are open to all members of the community.

We are extremely proud of our safety record and there are always senior members on hand to provide assistance and advice when required.  I am addicted to archery and it is so refreshing to be able to join up with so many like minded enthusiasts.  Our members specialise in every different archery discipline from ancient longbow to more modern recurve bows and we also have a healthy number of compound archers who embrace the latest technology that the sport has to offer.  If you want to take part in competitions and tournaments we regularly enter teams for major events or even if you just want some exercise and pleasant company.  We are a friendly bunch and a warm welcome awaits anyone wishing to take up this ancient sport.

Please get in touch to enroll on a beginners course.  We look forward to meeting you soon.
