The Valley Bowmen of Huddersfield was founded in 1963 and is a community amateur sports club (CASC) affiliated to the Grand National Archery Society and ArcheryGB (the sports governing body in the UK).

With over 100 members, a history going back to 1963, and as the only archery club in our community, the Valley Bowmen have long been a feature in the local sporting landscape. Our field on Knowle Lane near Meltham has provided an ideal, if basic, outdoor venue for archery since we acquired it with the support of Kirklees Council in 1991.

In 2013 the organising committee of the Valley Bowmen applied for and were successful in receiving an “Inspired Facilities Grant” from Sport England. The grant has been used to erect a secure store, kitchen and a toilet block including all necessary services and with provision for access for all. In total we applied for just under £50k.

Details can be found at Inspired Facilities

We run a number of beginner courses throughout the year. For more details contact us. We also run a number of “have-a-go-sessions” during the summer months, ideal for charitable orginisations or groups of friends to experience archery prior to signing up for a beginners course or as a "one off" experience.

We have a Private two acre outdoor archery range which is available for members to shoot at at all times.During the winter months we organise indoor shooting available to all club members.
