About Us

Bowmen of Walker is friendly, supportive and enthusiastic archery club based at Benfield Sports Centre in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne. We have over 70 members, including longbow, barebow, recurve and compound archers, and in 2015 the club will celebrate its 40th year.

We believe that archery is a sport for all and we cater for all ages and abilities. So whether you want to shoot socially or pursue your talent, you will be warmly welcomed to the club and we'll do everything we can to support you.

We are affiliated to Archery GB (GNAS) and are a member of the county archery association - Durham and Northumberland Archery Association (DNAA). We are also an Archery GB OnTarget performance club and have tailored coaching programmes for both senior and junior archers.

Throughout the year we run "Have a Go" events and Beginner Courses, so if you are thinking about taking up archery, please visit the Beginners page or sign up to our newsletter to receive updates.
