The Framlingham Bowmen Club was formed in 1990 as a Target Archery Club affiliated to the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) and is open to adults and juniors over the age of ten. The Club range at Framlingham Sports Club is laid out to enable distances of up to 100 yards to be shot.
As well as club shooting several members take part in open competition both as individuals and as part of the Framlingham Bowmen team. This is mainly in Essex but competitions in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire are also entered.
During the summer the Club runs classes for beginners wishing to try out the sport. Five lessons are provided under trained supervision using equipment supplied by the club. The Club takes part in the Framlingham Gala and runs demonstration events at local fetes to help with fund raising activities.
Each year the Archery club hosts East Anglian Championships. Running for over 65 years Bowmen and women from across the region come along to take part, and is open to children and disabled people.
