About Racketts

Racketts Archery Club was formed on the 10 June 1985 by Joe Dormer. Since that time however many members have come and gone but the values of the club remain the same. It was Joe's intention to have a 'Family Orientated' club that was 'open and friendly' which promoted and encouraged the sport of Archery. We still maintain these standards set by Joe and whilst being 'open and friendly' we are still highly competitive when it comes to competitions. 

Although we are not a very large club, our maximum membership is about thirty, we shoot a variety of disciplines. The most popular bow shot at Racketts is the 'recurve' type but we also have members that shoot the traditional 'longbow' and 'barebow'. We are a target club and shoot under Archery GB (GNAS) regulations, but a few members also belong to the NFAS and enjoy 'field' archery.


Our shooting venue is in Dunton during the summer, we shoot up to a maximum distance of 100 yds. We meet on Sunday mornings from 10.00 am and on a Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 10.00pm. (Times may vary check with a member).
