Ville Bowmen - Denmead Archery Club

Placeholder image

Welcome to Denmead Archery Club. We are a friendly and laid-back archery club shooting all year round. Our archers are known as Ville Bowmen and we have been shooting in Denmead for 15+ years.

You will find us at the Kidmore playing field in the summer (April-September) and at the Denmead War Memorial Hall in the winter (October-March). We also carry out have-a-go’s at events within Denmead such as the Village show and the famous Dinosaur Derby run by the Denmead scouts.

Denmead Archery Club welcomes anyone wishing to shoot with us. We allow all bow styles, Recurve, Compound and Longbows, we even have people who practice horseback archery! If it is your first time trying archery we ask that you have completed a beginner’s course before you can join. We run two beginner’s courses a year. If you have already completed a course elsewhere or are an experienced archer then feel free to come down and talk to us or contact us using the form.
