Our aim is…
to promote archery as a sport for all through exhibition, education, coaching, practice and competition.
NAC is one of Northamptonshire’s longest running clubs. It has shot continuously since 1948 at various locations in and around the town but more of this on our history pages.
The club encourages all forms of archery with members shooting a wide variety of bows including Longbow, American Flatbow, Recurve, Compound, Horse bows and Cross bows..
There is a real ‘family friendly’ feel to the club with a very active Junior section, many of whom have even got their parents shooting!
Whether you want to just shoot arrows for fun in a safe environment or practice for club, county and national competitions we think NAC is the best place in the county to shoot.
NAC is not just an archery club. We have social events like BBQ’s and after-shoot picnics. We put on childrens ‘Robin Hood’ parties and haveAgo days at events and fetes. Then there’s our fun Easter Egg, Halloween and Boxing day ‘Ping Tatty Bogle’ shoots and of course not forgetting the ever popular game of ‘Snowballing the Chairman When He’s Not Looking’.
If you’ve ever thought about learning to shoot please feel free to check out the site, contact us and before you know it you’ll be shooting 4 Golds.
During the outdoor season (April – October) we shoot at Sywell Shooting Range just off the A43, every Saturday from midday; and every Tuesday evening from 6pm till dusk. We also shoot indoors at Carlsberg Social Club on Wednesday evenings.
During the indoors season (October – April) we shoot at Carlsberg Social Club every Tuesday and John Ashby Sports Hall at Moulton College Thursday evening; and every Saturday at John Ashby Sports Hall, Moulton College from 10.00am to 1.00pm.
