OUCofA is the archery club of Oxford University and membership is open to everyone studying or working at the University (students from Oxford Brookes are also welcome). We have practice sessions several times a week, primarily at the university sports centre, inside in the winter and outside in the summer. We run a structured beginner’s course in Michaelmas Term, but also have a smaller novice intake in Hilary Term. The first team is very competitive at the national level, regularly making the top 5 at BUCS. There are also many opportunities for those of all standards to compete as well – from County level and higher, to complete beginners.
We currently have well over 100 members and are always keen to welcome new members.
