Club Information :
Formed in 1980, Kestrels is a well established target archery club based in the market towns of Biggleswade and Sandy in Bedfordshire. The club caters for all ages from 9 to 109, from people who want to shoot for fun to competitive tournament archers and all bow types are welcome (except crossbows). We have a number of GNAS qualified coaches who can provide coaching and assistance to archers of all capabilities.
We run 4 or 5 have-a-go events at various fetes and summer events during the year in the local area and are also able to cater to groups who wish to come and try archery at our outdoor venue.
During the year we organise 2 indoor and 2 outdoor open competitions during the year which attracts archers of all ages and abilities from far and wide.
Outdoor Venue :
Our idyllic outdoor shooting venue is located out in the fields in Furzenhall Road, Biggleswade. During the Outdoor season from April to September we have unlimited access to this so you may find archers shooting at any time, especially when the sun is shining.
Our club evenings are Tuesday and Thursday and you will also find us on the shooting field on Sunday afternoons.
Indoor Venue :
We shoot indoors during the winter at Sandy Upper School on a Saturday evening.
Beginners Courses :
We try to run 2 courses for beginners during the year. These are held on the Saturday and Sunday of 2 consecutive weekends. New members may borrow club equipment for shooting until they feel confident and able to buy their own kit. We provide regular coaching to new members.
