Who we are

Atkins Archers was founded at a meeting held on Thursday, 13th October 1966

its purpose being "to encourage the art and practice of archery"

Atkins is a Target Archery club, shooting throughout the year, primarily at our outdoor range in Epsom, Surrey.

We are an open club with a current membership of 50 or so archers, of varying age and standard. Recurve bows dominate at present, although Compound & Longbow archers also shoot.

During the summer months (April-September), evening shooting takes place on Thursdays with shooting on most Sundays throughout the year.

Club trophies

As with all archery clubs, Atkins Archers have built up a collection of club trophies that our archers enjoy shooting for over the course of the year.

These range from achievement awards, for improvement over the season, to club championship trophies and awards for high scores.

One of the oldest trophies we award, is the 'Llantrisant trophy' which is awarded to the archer, shooting the highest authenticated score in the 'York' round for men or the 'Hereford' round for ladies. Follow the link above to find out more about its Welsh origins.
