About Samlesbury Longbow Archers

Samlesbury Longbow Archers have been based at Preston Grasshoppers’ Rugby Union Club since November 2004. The Club is a pure longbow club and at present has 40+ members.

We shoot regularly on Monday, Thursday and Saturday mornings and members may shoot on any day if the ground is not being used by Grasshoppers.

The club is affiliated to the British Long‑Bow Society (BLBS) and we shoot in accordance with the society’s rules.

The club hosts four British Long‑Bow Society shoots.  The club also holds two open shoots:  the Four Counties, a competition between Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire,  and the Azincourt shoot, where archers and guests come in medieval dress and a fine time is had by all.  In addition we hold club competions on Saturdays throughout the season.

Longbow Archery is a sport for all ladies and gentlemen, from teenagers to octogenarians.

Training courses are held between April and August on Monday evenings 6 til 8.

We also host “have a go” sessions for groups and organisations.

Anyone interested in any of the above should contact; Mr Alan Cowie, 33 Lindle Lane, Hutton. PR4 4AR. Tel. 01772 743916.
