Chippenham Archers

Range Re-Opening

We are re-opening the range from Monday 29th March in line with government and ArcheryGB guidance.

However, we have to introduce a booking system and its use is mandatory without exception for any reason. Usage of the range without pre-booking a lane is in breach of club and ArcheryGB guidance - you will not be covered by the "Organised Sport" exceptions for COVID regulations, will not be covered by ArcheryGB or club insurance and may be subject to club disciplinary measures and possibly even prosecution.

We have deliberately picked a very simple system for lane booking - signup and usage is as simple as it can be. However, if you have problems then please let us know and we will try to help.

This system will remain in place for only as long as necessary - as soon as COVID restrictions are lifted we will revert to a turn-up and shoot system.

Please read our updated COVID guidance for full details of any changes, and how to sign-up to and use the booking system.

We look forward to seeing you at the range - socially distanced of course.
