Whitford Forrest Archers
Archery is a family sport that can be enjoyed by young and old, male and female.
Whitford Forrest Archers have resided in the Whitford Forest for over 20 years and was started by a local man for field shooters in the area.
The club currently has a 14 field target course that has one of the best views across the harbour to Rangitoto Island. It also has a 20 paper animal course that can be substituted for 3d animals when required.
Whilst the club itself specialises in field archery, it also supports those that wish to take part in other disciplines such as target archery.
We welcome compound, recurve and longbow shooters and our club membership covers all ages and shooting divisions. Our members regularly compete both Nationally and Internationally.
For those interested in having a go or having some basic coaching and instruction, please be aware of the following:
Lessons are only held on Sunday Mornings. If lessons cannot be held due to any reason on any particular date, notices are posted on this web page (above) and the Whitford Forrest Archers facebook, so please check before coming to avoid disappointment.
You must arrive promptly at 9. The lesson starts shortly after 9am and ends at 10am. If you arrive later there is a good chance that you will be turned away and asked to come back at a later date.
We can only accommodate limited numbers due to available space for safety conditions, coaches and equipment. Our maximum numbers per class are 10. The minimum age for students is 8 years.
Please do not be offended if we do have to turn you away , but due to safety reasons we may have to do this if we have high numbers of people.
Archery is a sport where serious accidents can happen if the conditions are unsafe and Whitford Forrest Archers take the safety of our members and visitors very seriously.
We cannot have small children around the practice range as they pose a safety risk for all archers and coaches. If you bring children with you please make sure that they have an adult (or someone 14+) to supervise them during your lesson.
