Welcome To Archers of East Riding
The Archers of East Riding Archery Club was established in October 2009 by a small group of enthusiastic archers.
Based at Hutton Cranswick SRA sports ground, near Driffield, it boasts an 11 acre shooting field with a club house for when the weather becomes too much.
All Covid related restrictions on outdoor sport were removed on 19 July 2021. You may now shoot normally. Masks need not be worn and hand sanitiser is not obligatory though some archers are choosing to use both. Please respect the decisions of fellow archers. In particular do not pull or pick up a fellow archer’s arrows without asking them first.
Winter Archery Shooting
Outdoors: Club days are Sunday mornings at the sports field starting at 9:30-10:00
and Wednesdays 10:00 till dusk (weather permitting)
You can shoot at any other time you wish but the sports field is a multi-sport site, so please ensure your shooting does not clash with any other pre-arranged activities.
Summer Archery Shooting
Organised club days are:
Weekend: Sunday mornings starting at 9:30-10:00
Weekdays: Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5pm until dusk
and Wednesdays 10am till late
During the summer the field is available all day everyday for archers to practice, subject to the need to avoid clashing with other sports.
The Club forms part of the Yorkshire Archery Association, is affiliated to the Northern Counties Archery Association (NCAS) and the Grand National Archery Association (GNAS).
