About

Our club was formed in September 2011, due to considerable interest expressed by the staff of Kent Police. As a result, the 3 founding members got together, and created the beginning of what we have today, and the rest is history.

We are a “closed club”, specifically providing the opportunity only for members of the Police family ( serving and retired Police Officers, serving and retired Police Staff, along with members of the Special Constabulary) and others who are also members of the Kent Police Recreation Association (KPRA) who have an interest in various forms of archery, such as Target -Field – and Clout, to join us. The club also permits and caters for the spouse / partner, direct dependent children ( from the age of 10 years upwards) or Committee invited friends of any KPRA member to also join and participate in our club.

Membership of the club is further based on individuals who are either existing archers, who have provided proof of such, and their ability to shoot in a particular bow discipline, or they would be new to archery and would have undergone a beginners course, and have been certified to initial entry standard, and further offered the opportunity to join our club. As such, our club has a mixture of members from beginners, right up to National and International standard archers, but the fundamental ethos of the club, is that all members offer assistance to each other when asked to, in order to improve skill levels and ability, and in so doing raise the standard and standing of the club in the archery world. It also aims to further engender an atmosphere of friendship and camaraderie with like-minded individuals, sharing this common interest.
