About Us

Preesall Indoor Archery & Air Rifle Centre is a place where everyone is welcome. For us, it's not all about serious training, we're just as enthusiastic about our groups that simply meet for fun.

We don't differentiate between our members. Anyone is welcome to join us. Our qualified trainers are team members just like anyone else and will be happy to tell you more about the archery and air rifle activities we offer and help you find the place that's right for you.

We're always happy to welcome new members who are interested in joining in with club activities, helping us organise events or excursions and being part of our community.

Our mission -
"To get people into Archery and Rifle shooting, especially the young, to train them to their full potential and nurture those with the necessary skills to take their sport to the next level. To have fun during the fun times, but also have the ability to be serious when the situation arises, for example during competitions."
Our vision -

To provide participatory sports, programs and services to the community in a manner that meets or exceeds the standard of excellence required and to aid our members in fulfilling their ability.

Our Facilities

We have built up the equipment and the building we shoot in to make it as comfortable as possible for all with heating, coffee/tea facilities and a toilet.

We are always working on ways to improve all aspects ot the club which has recently seen the opening of a new club room in the Archery center, which offers members a place to relax and has full heating, tea/coffee facilites, cloakroom and is fully carpeted throughout.

We have now opened our brand new outdoor covered archery range offering archers the opportunity to shoot outdoors at a range of upto 90 meters. We constantly continue to improve our facilities for both the archery and air rifle centres with state of the art equipment and fully trained staff.

We have inter club competitions all the time, and two-three times a year we run fun days where all members are welcome to attend, play games, and generally have fun but still with a serious side.
