Westcombe Field Archers
Welcome to the Westcombe Field Archers Website
Set in beautiful woods near Taunton, Somerset, the Westcombe Field Archery Club has been in existence since the 1990’s, and is non-profit, run by a committee of its members.
Members are able to shoot at the club weekly all year round. NFAS members are also welcome to visit, see Opens Shoots & Visiting .
As a club we run club fun shoots as well as a number of NFAS open shoots. We regularly provide a course as part of the South West Challenge.
We are currently taking on new and experienced archers as members.
We run beginner training courses over the summer months.
If you wish to be a guest shooter then email us in advance. Payment £5/person will be needed by BACS.
Training courses are now closed for this year. They will re-open in April next year. If you are interested in going on the list contact us.
Booking details for our June 12th 2022 now ready!!
Form can be found here.
We have set a brand new 36 X 3d Course 18 on the older [and flatter] side of the road and 18 on the newer side [A little more challenging]. We think you will love it. If you want to just come for the company and shoot a less challenging non-competitive course we can provide that with 36 X 3d targets. We are going back to the normal walk out start @10:00. Full catering, including the very popular chilli! The only COVID change we would appreciate is up front payment by BACS. Details on the form.
