Need To know This Week

Interclub Shoot Saturday 3 February The Archery NZ monthly Interclub Challenge is on this Saturday at our outdoor range – join in! No need to register and no cost – you just need an adult member to sign off your score.

The round is a modified Canadian 900 (90 arrows at 3 distances, the longest being 55/45/35 meters). Any age and any bow type can take part, but you do need to be comfortable shooting the distances – see all the distances and rules here.

Indoor Range closed until 8am Saturday 3 February: our new lighting is now being installed thanks to a grant from the Trusts Community Foundation.
