The History of Phoenix Archers

Phoenix Archers was established in October 2009 by a group of like-minded enthusiasts who had met at other archery events, with the aim of creating a local club where the ancient sport of archery could be practiced and with a desire to encourage, support and assist all members to thoroughly enjoy their archery

We were lucky enough to find a local gentleman who offered us his eight-acre field set in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside around Smeeton Westerby, near to Kibworth

Five golds at 50yds for Rob

Since that time, we have gone from strength to strength, with a well maintained and marked out shooting ground with clubhouse & toilets.

Our membership has steadily increased and we now have a healthy mix of traditional longbow, Barebow and Olympic-style recurve archers.


The August Beginners course starts on the 13th.
