Knights Accreditation:

Welcome to Knights Archers!

 

Target

We are a student-run club, offering membership to both University of Reading students and non-students.

All bow styles are welcome (but please speak to the committee regarding compound bows). All ability levels are welcome and coaching is available.

The club owns recurve bows, arrows and other equipment for members to use. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own equipment - there will be shop trips throughout the year if you want to buy anything!

Our society mainly focuses on target archery.

During autumn and spring term we practice indoors at SportsPark, and in the summer we shoot outdoors on Whiteknight's Field.
