Gronant Bowmen Archery Club is a friendly and dedicated target archery club, based in beautiful North Wales. The club was originally formed in Gronant, a small village in North Flintshire, at the Northern tip of the Clwydian mountain range. Our main weekly shooting venue is Rhyl Leisure Centre, and we also shoot in Rhuddlan. We have members from Flintshire, Denbighshire & Conwy counties, with some members travelling from as far as Cheshire and Merseyside. We host regular competitions which are record status and see participation from archers from across the country. Our members have also had success on the tournament scene with multiple members of the Welsh national team coming from Gronant Bowmen, and even a UK Masters champion.

We are passionate about our archery, why not join us?

  • Our outdoor ranges are on shared use sports fields where other sports, such as football/rugby etc. are played, often by children. Therefore it is absolutely essential, (and a condition of our use of the fields), that ALL lost arrows are recovered and accounted for. An arrow left half buried in the grass could cause serious injuries to other users of the field, particularly if it gets damaged by grass cutting equipment, leaving sharp exposed ends. Microscopic splinters from a carbon or carbon/aluminium arrow can cause serious problems if they were to penetrate the skin. 

    Arrows that miss the target often get buried in the grass or soil, meaning we have to use a metal detector to find them.
