Welcome to our website

Northern Archers was formed in 1953 and has been at its present location since 1962. We are one of the largest archery clubs in Sydney. The range is nestled within Pennant Hills Park and is one of the best 7 day a week archery facilities available.

Archery is a sport anyone can do from around 10 years of age. You can shoot socially and/or competitively as yours skills improve. Its completely up to you. Club members are around to provide guidance and if it's coaching your after that can be arranged to.

Members of the public can access the range through our "Come and Try" sessions or Beginners classes only. Outside this, those shooting at the range must be financially current members of Northern Archers, or any affiliated Archery Australia or Archers Alliance accredited club.

Northern Archers HCP League

For beginners, seasoned Archers, junior and seniors alike, the Club conducts two progressive competitions per year with organised competitive rounds on a fortnightly basis where we all have the chance to compete in a relaxed club atmosphere and on a level footing.

It is a handicap event so everyone has the chance of winning - in fact the novice Archer has a greater chance of taking out the individual shoots because, arguably, the ratings system is weighted in their favour.

Please go to the "Club League" page for more details.
