Lough Cuan Bowmen

Lough Cuan Bowmen is an archery club based in Newtownards, Co. Down. The Club was founded in 1986 and promotes archery as a competitive sport and a recreation except for hunting (it is illegal to hunt any creature with a bow and arrow in most EEC countries). Lough Cuan Bowmen is affiliated to the Northern Ireland Archery Society (NIAS), the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) and the Fédération Internationale de Tir à l'Arc (FITA). We have links with Clubs across the Island of Ireland and our archers participate in events across the British Isles.

Friendly and welcoming we do not take ourselves too seriously yet this does not mean that the club does not have success - our archers hold awards from local, national and even world championship events.

As a club our archers host 'have-a-go' events for Youth, Pensioner Groups, Schools, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, local Fairs and Corporate Events (contact us). We run frequent classes for beginners who want to experience the sport of archery under the supervision of a qualified coach. We also welcome new members who are already experienced in archery.  Our archers practice Field as well as Target archery in all styles - Long-Bow, Traditional, Recurve and Compound and several are members of other organisations such as the British Long-Bow Society and the Traditional Archery Society of Ireland. If you would like to know more contact us by completing the form on the contacts page.
We meet on the Ards Rugby Football Club grounds at Lansdowne Road, Newtownards on Thursday nights from April to August and in the Ards Leisure Centre, William Street, Newtownards on Friday nights from September to March, for more details see our event schedule for details.
