Crystal Palace Bowmen

Welcome to the Crystal Palace Bowmen's website. We are a friendly archery club who are lucky enough to be able to use the grounds of the Old Dunstonian's Club in Beckenham, Bromley since about 1970.

If you are thinking of starting archery then ArcheryGB has a new web site with information for beginners.

compound bow

Usually the club meets every Sunday (weather permitting!!), on most Tuesdays and some Thursday evenings during the summer. Club members can also shoot during the week.

We welcome all styles of archer (recurve, long bow, compound etc.) and have three coaches who can work with archers to help them improve.

We are affiliated to ArcheryGB (otherwise known as GNAS the Grand National Archery Society), the Kent Archery Association, the Southern Counties Archery Society.

We now have a facebook page:

Sundays & Tuesdays

We currently shoot all year round on a Sunday morning arriving at the field at about 09:40 to setup with an aim to start shooting at 10:00. It is possible to shoot all day, but this is dependent on a keyholder being present for the afternoon sessions.

There are normally club members shooting on a Tuesday morning. Between April to the end of September, we aim to hold sessions on a Tuesday late afternoon / evening until it gets dark, although this is subject to a keyholder being available.

For all other times, you either need a key or to liaise with a club member who is a keyholder. The club does have a WhatsApp group which makes contacting key holders a little easier.
