Indoor sessions run from October to March. We shoot at a number of school venues near to Wallingford. We run several open club session per week, as well as a wide range of training groups.
Didcot Girls School Gym
The Gym, also known as "Frids", is the small hall at Didcot Girls.
Park in the main car park off Manor Crescent. Head to the right of reception along the fence and follow the path round. When you pass some containers on the left, turn left and the entry to the hall is on the left. Please note the glass doors into the hall are locked while shooting is taking place.
Didcot Girls School Sports Hall
The Sports Hall is the larger hall at Didcot Girls School.
Park in the main car park off Manor Crescent. Head to the right of reception along the fence and follow the path round. When you pass some containers on the left, turn left and the entry to the hall is on the right, next to the bike parking.
Wallingford School is our primary indoor venue.
There is currently building work taking place at Wallingford School so access is different to normal. Please park in the nursery car park to the left of the school buildings, or in the front car park. You can head across the school field around the back, past the all weather pitch and access the hall there.
Outdoor sessions run from April to September. Club sessions typically run on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, but the range is open most days of the week to more experienced members.
Wallingford Sports Park
The range is on the north field at the Sports Park. Follow the track up past the buildings and through the gap in the hedge to the car park
Wallingford Castle Archers aim to make archery as accessible as possible for young people. However, we also have to ensure that we follow safeguarding guidance and help to keep every child safe.
Those children of primary school age (up to 11) are classified as "minis", with older children under the age of 18 classified as "juniors".
Minis members may only attend minis sessions. Parents do not need to stay for minis sessions. However, those in year 5 or 6 who have attained their white arrow award may be invited to attend other sessions. For the junior session, parents may leave the child with us. For other sessions, they must stay.
Junior members may attend open sessions with parental supervision. When they have achieved their blue arrow award and have their own equipment (moved up to Junior Team level) they may shoot without supervision at most sessions, subject to availability and communication with coaches.
