Welcome to the Archers of Zoo Lake Club
Archers of Zoo Lake is a community archery club located on the grounds of Zoo Lake. We offer lessons and training to anybody from absolute beginners to more advanced archers. We have superb coaching, well maintained equipment and an overall friendly atmosphere. Our range is an outdoor range and caters for distances of up to 90m. We take students from 8 years old up, and the great thing about archery is that you can take it up at any age! This is a sport that requires correct technique rather than brute strength, which is why it appeals to so many different types of people.
Equipment can be rented for beginners. We do not advise that you buy equipment until you have shot for a while – this is because your shooting style will most likely change as you progress and you could end up with equipment that no longer suits you after a few months. Our coaches are more than willing to advise you on what, and when, to buy equipment and they will take both your physical requirements and your budget into consideration.
We have our own club tournaments which are held approximately every 3 months and are open to all club members provided that they have qualified at the 18m distance. For archers wanting to compete in outside archery tournaments we will assist you wherever possible to achieve this. We have an Archers of Zoo Lake uniform and in order to compete for the club you will need to be a paid up member and qualify for the distance that you wish to shoot. Your coach will assist you with this.
We also have club membership available for more experienced archers. Archers will need to qualify for membership and this will be done with one of our coaches during a qualification session.
The range is fenced off and we have our own secure parking and clubhouse.
