Archery GB has provided guidance that permits archery clubs to open in "Phase 2". The Club will continually assess the feasibility of returning to safe shooting at the field. It is unlikely that indoor shooting at Kenley will possible for winter 2020/21.

Archery GB has produced a list of FAQs to download on its dedicated Covid-19 webpage

We are required to hold an AGM. As this unlikely to be held indoors we may conduct proceedings electronically.  Information will be sent to members in due course.

We shoot at the field Sunday mornings (arrive by 09.45 to set out field, sighters at 10.30) and summer evenings during May to August (arrive by 18.00 to set out field, sighters at 18.30). During August, we have access to the field from 4pm on Wednesdays.

See the fixture list(s) below for more information on rounds, field captains, etc.

We shoot rounds that are in accordance with either Archery GB Imperial or AGB Metric rules.

Please contact us If you would like to join us, either on the shooting line or through an archery training course.

Club Fixtures

The Summer schedule runs from April to September, the winter schedule is from October to March.

All Club shoots are postponed until further notice.

All of our shooting events are classed as “non record status tournament” days which allows archers to shoot for Club trophies, awards, a classification and a handicap; provided a correctly completed score sheet is submitted.

We award trophies and medals for the summer and winter competitions. These can be found on the Awards page (updated after bi-annual award ceremonies in November and June).

Members may also undertake the Club's "252" scheme - a way to challenge yourself to improve your shooting. This is particularly useful to newer Club members. Remember, you cannot earn either a classification or a handicap from shooting these rounds.

Anyone wishing to submit scores for consideration as a county record or county ranking must comply with Surrey Archery's published rules.

If you fancy attending some external tournaments, Brighton Bowmen have a Tournament Diary that lists most major open tournaments (although they appear to have stopped updating it) and have a look at the "Beginners Guide for Attending Tournaments" (link below). 

Details of county championship shoots can be found on the Surrey Archery website (link via above button). 

Frostbite matches

Warlingham usually have 3 recurve teams and 1 compound team entered for the Surrey and National postal leagues for winter. Information can be found in links below (updated from late November to late March).

The Club's recurve ‘A’ team won the 1st Division title in 2018-19.

Shooting Records

(including member's outdoor scores, current classification and handicaps)

Member's awards (trophies and medals) for summer, winter and personal achievement together with the Club's record holders can be found on the Awards page.

Members' outdoor scores for 2019 - 2020 (Updated to April 2020), now includes handicap score for each round shot and '252' awards.

Members' classifications:  May 2020, January 2020,  June 2019; and handicaps: Jan 2020,  June 2019 (xlsx files - 10kb)

Some members may appear on the handicap list but not on the classifications list. This just reflects the way earlier handicaps are carried forward even if the archers submitted scores for less than 3 rounds.
