Sports Clubs

Archery

Napier University Archery Club was set up in 2004 and has grown slowly but steadily since then. We are proud to now be counted among the most active and competitive archery clubs in Scotland.

We look forward to welcoming students of ALL standards, whether a pro or someone who doesn’t even know how to hold a bow, to come along and see what we do and give archery a go for themselves. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own kit as the club has its own stock of equipment that beginners can train with. Target archery is about high precision and technical support, which doesn’t require you to be all that fit or strong. The vast majority of people who join us are complete beginners but, with a little dedication, quickly improve into quality athletes.

The club competes in a league with six other Scottish universities and also takes part in the British University championships, which are among the largest archery events in the UK. In recent years the club has always managed to rank among the top contenders and we have a growing pile of medals and awards. We also attend open competitions throughout the year and regularly shoot alongside some of the biggest names in archery.

As well as competitions and training, the club also enjoys a very active social aspect. Almost every training session ends in a pub or at a party and trips around Scotland are regular occurrences. The highlight of the year involves a week-long trip to the Isle of Skye in the middle of what passes for Scotland’s summer.

Training times for novices are 7:30pm on Firdays and 4pm on Sundays at North Merchiston Club, Watson Cresent, Edinburgh, EH11 1EP. With all of the equipment and coaching provided as well.

If there are any questions or queries, don’t hesitate to contact us through the club’s email or social media.
