Welcome to Laleham Archery Club. We are a friendly group of archers with a great range of skill and experience levels, from very recently trained through to 'old-hands'. If you are interested in learning to shoot, we offer beginner's courses or, if you are already an archer, you are welcome to join us and shoot on club nights or, due to our 'always-available' policy, shoot whenever you want (light permitting) at our outdoor range.

45 archers braved the torrents for the wettest Albion in years! Smiles prevailed, though, especially afterwards in the hall over tea, cakes and awards! Big thanks to all who shot or mucked in to help!

Full schedule

56th Annual Laleham Albion

Despite apocalyptic weather conditions, 45 archers turned out to shoot in the 56th Laleham Albion, which was held on Sunday 14th October, 2018.

The shooting line was slippery, the target faces sodden and the scoresheets nearly disintegrated, but nevertheless, a great Dunkirk spirit prevailed, helped along by plenty of cake and smiling faces - and there was even a UK record claim submitted!

We look forward to next year's 57th Albion, which we hope will be a much drier affair!!

The entry form will be posted here as soon as it has been finalised, but in the meantime, the date will be Sunday 13th October, 2019 - so get it in your diaries!!

Beginners Course

We offer several courses per year throughout both the indoor and outdoor seasons. These are popular and, as spaces are limited, they are often over-subscribed (although we do hold a waiting list in case of drop-outs). These sessions are suitable for anyone between the ages of 8 and 80 years old, who is relatively fit and active. The programme consists of six sessions, one evening a week.
