Welcome to Goldcrest Archers

Goldcrest Archers was set up on 11/11/11 and are an established active club.

We are easily located in the heart of Tameside as we nest between the historic archery counties of Cheshire, Lancashire, Derbyshire and West Yorkshire. The club is all-inclusive and all-ability and members work together to help run the club for everyone's (and the sport's) benefit and promotion.

The club is affiliated to Archery GB, Cheshire Archery Association and Northern Counties Archery Society. We have an indoor venue which consists of a full size 20 yard shooting range. We also have CCTV monitors of the targets for instant feedback to the archer if desired.

The venue has the added benefit of a separate training and beginners’ course workshop which enables the club to run continuous beginners’ courses, thereby reducing the waiting time people may have experienced from other clubs. This separate workshop allows Goldcrest members to shoot almost 24/7.

We also have the added benefit of an outdoor venue at Fairfield School where we can shoot outdoor rounds and members are able to shoot after school time and during holidays (subject to the commitments of Fairfield School). This is a beautiful field for which we are very grateful to have the use of.

At Goldcrest Archers we are proud to have onboard a County level Qualified Coach and two Level 1 Qualified Coaches who run the beginners’ courses, and, with our enthusiastic members, we will help all archers develop and progress.

We are a supportive club which celebrates all our members' achievements from those shooting National Records and County Records to those members who enjoy the social side of archery. Most important of all, we are a caring club that always has a welcoming smile to members and visitors.
