Hello and welcome to
Wyke Archers of Hull & the East Riding of Yorkshire.
We are a family orientated target archery club based within Willerby, Hull, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, fully affiliated with Archery GB (the governing body in the UK), the Yorkshire Archery Association, & the Northern Counties Archery. Our belief is that people of all abilities and ages (aged 10 & above) should have access to archery facilities, and our aim is to cater for all who wish to enjoy the sport of Archery in the Hull and surrounding areas, with the emphasis on the fun! From beginners to more experienced, from recreational archers to competition shooters we are open to all. Our main archery disciplines are Longbow, Recurve, and Compound archery.
Contrary to popular local thinking, we have nothing at all to do with Wyke College even though many automatically think we do because of the similar names! Wyke Archers (Wyke upon Hull being the ancient name for Kingston upon Hull) started in 2005 on a west Hull rugby field with a few bows and straw targets to shoot at. We relocated in 2010 to secure grounds within a school in Willerby, Hull. This gives us a choice of indoor or outdoor shooting depending on the weather, so we now never have to cancel a session due to rain etc. Having steadily grown, we are now actively opening our doors to new members. You will find on our website all the information you need regarding costs, courses, and how to book with us to try out your skills at Archery.
Arbalists: We have had a few requests and unfortunately our club does not accept Arbalists (crossbow shooters) to shoot with us at this time. More arbalist information can be found on the National Crossbow Federation website (recently updated) for those looking to enter this sport, and a handy leaflet on the safe use of crossbows and the UK Law is also available
Please feel free to browse our site, and contact us with any questions you have about our club. We also recommend that you have a look on our Facebook page or Twitter page where you will find further details of our club, many photographs taken during our club sessions, and pictures from our fun shoots. We also now have a Flickr account for all our club photo albums!
Archery GB Members: We have an open door policy to all AGB members who are registered with another club. If you are a bowman or women at a club elsewhere wishing to visit, come down, show your current AGB card, and you will be welcomed to shoot with us for the cost of the line fee on the day. This is standard policy with most clubs allowing members to shoot almost anywhere in the UK.
Corporate Events: If you run a local business and would like to discuss shooting with us as a team building/corporate event please get in touch and we’ll work with you to meet your requirements.
Target Renewal Program: We have now completed our program of target boss renewal and are proud to announce that we are now no longer shooting at old style straw bosses. New bosses made from foam in a bespoke framework have been made and we can now shoot at a staggering 12 foam targets. This gives us greater flexibility and allows those with expensive carbon alloy arrows greater surety that they will not be damaged and we can cater to those who have moved over to the dark side…..
Friday sessions (members & advanced beginners only) is from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
Sunday sessions (Members and beginners) is from 1pm to 3pm.
***If the session(s) are cancelled for any reason it will be noted here***
We try and keep an eye on the weather forecast for the next few days where we shoot regularly
