We have extensive facilities and equipment with which we offer several types of shoots along with indoor and Outdoor Target, Clout and 3D’s.
As well as club days and nation tournaments, we also regularly hold fun shoots and BBQ’s.
Several times though out the year we hold ‘Have a Go’ shoots down Margam Park just behind the castle. Where members of the public can join us to try there hand at archery.
Where we shoot
We are very lucky to have access to the beautiful Margam Country Park as our shooting grounds. We shoot in the Park on Monday Evenings in the summer (6pm Start), Thursday and Sunday’s (11am onwards) throughout the year.
Down Margam Park we have a large choice of shoots available. Mainly as we are fortunate enough to have access to the extensive east grounds we tend to mostly shoot clout distances of 180 yards for the gents and 120 yards for the women’s clout, as well as the option to shoot at all target distances.
We also regularly go on rove shoots around the park and for the brave we have the stoop shoot, which after a short trek uphill is a shoot.
During the colder weather from September to April we shoot in Tondu Cricket Club on Monday evenings. Sundays and Thursdays in the park weather permitting.
In Tondu Cricket Club we shoot at a distance of 20 yards at a standard 122cm Target.
