First Aid Kits are available with the PPE in the container and in the indoor range along with incident/accident report forms.

7 Days a week; Maximum of 4 Archers from different households or 1 larger family from same household per session. You can shoot alone in the range too. For safety, the time slots are staggered to allow 1/2 hour for archers to finish sanitising and vacate the range before the next archers arrive.
New Process for Indoor Bookings
Due to the night’s drawing in, and an increased number of archers wanting to shoot indoors we are needing to put some restrictions in place for booking the indoor range. This is not intended to reduce anyone’s shooting time, but to allow all archers equal access to book sessions each week.
Booking in Advance: Maximum booking 2 sessions in advance
o Either a double session (back-to-back) or 2 single sessions
o Try to book 24 hours in advance
o Can book another session after 1 session has passed
Booking for additional sessions
o Additional sessions can be booked less than 24 hours before the session
o Bookings made at short notice may not get an approval email, but you can shoot if the range is empty
One date available for Morton Hall in December. Tuesday 21st 800-2100. There will be a maximum of 8 people across 4 bosses for the session and a minimum of 2 people required. To be shot in double detail. These sessions do not count towards booking limit.
From the calendar below, click your chosen date and then select the time slot that you would like.
Should you wish to cancel a booking you MUST let the committee know as soon as possible.
If you’re cancelling on the day of shooting contact Deborah using the number found on your booking approval email.
This will allow us to inform anyone else booked with you and allow other members the chance to book.
To share a boss outdoors decide before hand and use the same booking form. Maximum of 2 archers per boss from separate households.
DO NOT SHARE A BOSS WITH SOMEONE NOT ON YOUR BOOKING FORM/CALENDAR EVENT
Please remember booking form is per person indoors and per boss outdoors.
Morton Hall bookings do not count towards indoor limits.
Outdoor Feedback 20th April 2021
It has been surprisingly easy to feel safe at the club. In terms of shooting outdoors, ‘staying in your own lane’ has taken on a more literal meaning, but it’s nice to have a boss to yourself. During set up, the size of the bosses and stands facilitates distancing all by itself, and there’s always sufficient gloves or hand sanitiser in the container. Everyone I’ve shot with seems to have made the adjustment now, so when we do break for a chat or a (Bring Your Own) tea/coffee, standing a good (2 metres) distance apart just seems to happen naturally. Personally, apart from having to speak up a bit to be heard, it’s been an easy transition.
Feedback from archers shooting indoors from 21st September 2020
- “The setup works really well, no need to visit the school, safe access to the range and can be used by lone archers. Chuffed to be back indoors”.
- “So happy to have access to the indoor range again, just in time now the bad weather is upon us. Everything has been well thought out relating to Covid-19, with a dividing screen, face masks, hand sanitiser and even target boss sanitiser. It feels really safe to shoot indoors, don’t be shy, book your slot and start enjoying archery again in a nice, warm safe environment”.
- It’s been great to get back to indoor shooting now the weather is getting worse. The restrictions are okay once you get used to them and should not stop anybody enjoying shooting. It’s as safe as it can be with things as they are at present, I feel perfectly safe. Got to say Paul Egan does look better with a mask on….I’ll be sorry for that….:-)
