Range Set Up and Take Down

Please assist with setting up and taking down the range.

If you can’t arrive at the start of a session or have to leave before the end, that’s fine. If, however, you make a habit of leaving set up and take down to other people, there will be words.

Important note: our range is used by the students and staff of Longhill High School and by other sports clubs.  Shooting, therefore, must end 30 minutes before dusk to ensure that all equipment is removed from the range and stored securely in the container.  This also provides time for the retrieval of lost arrows.

In the event that a lost arrow cannot be found, the staff at the Longhill Sports Centre must be informed before members leave the campus.  Additionally, the owner of the lost arrow must return to the field the next morning no later than 7.00 am to find it.

Sports Centre staff should be notified of the outcome of the following morning’s search no later than 9.00 am on that day.


Regardless of your age, experience or skill level, you are welcome to shoot with us as a guest (but no more than twice each year. After that you  need to enquire about joining the club as a full member).

It is probably worth your while to contact us before you turn up to check that space is available. Send an e-mail to

Target fees are £5, which must be paid before you set up your equipment. For insurance purposes, you must also have a current Archery GB (GNAS) membership card or a temporary card provided by your club secretary.

All children and young adults under 18 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.
