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, at Iffley road during Michaelmas and Hilary and at Pembroke College Sports Ground in Trinity. We run a structured beginner’s course in Michaelmas Term but welcome members with prior experience in the sport year-round. 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.
