Sword-fighting is all very well, but you’ve always fancied yourself more of a Robin Hood type. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Archery is popular in the SCA, and our Barony has some of the best. Our target archery has similar rules and equipment to many other groups, so previous experience will stand you in good stead.

If you’d like to have a go at shooting a bow, contact our Captain of Archers at, or come along to our regular practice – we’ve always got extra equipment for beginners to try!

Combat Archery

In addition to target archery, we also allow combat archers to join armoured fighters on the War Field. It’s like paintball, medieval-style! We use ‘blunts’ (arrows with flat rubber tips), low-poundage bows, and light armour to reduce chances of injury. Unlike target archers, all combat archers must be authorised as safe combatants before they take the field.
