Southsea Archery Club was founded in October 2012 by Sonnie Emeney and Thomas Pickard. It was their ambition to start an archery club in central Portsmouth that could provide archery for anyone! They got their archery teaching qualification and the rest as they say is history!

In January 2013 the first taster sessions and beginners courses were held, and some of those archers are still shooting with us as well as elsewhere.

So far the club has established 4 ranges; one is at the Havelock Community Centre which is indoors and the other indoor range at Priory School. We occasionally shoot at Southsea Castle during the summer but our main outdoor shooting area since 2016 has been at Cockleshell Sports Fields where we can shoot up to a full 100 yard distance.

Southsea Archery is fully mobile and we have the ability to move our equipment so we can provide archery at events, parties, at homes and schools. We have a very social club and put on various social events. To keep updated with the Events we are hosting, follow us on most social media sites.
