Both able bodied and those with disabilities are welcome at Chorley Bowmen and help is always on hand from our qualified coaches. Our members are of all ages and abilities, so you will not feel left out.

During the winter, we shoot at South Ribble Tennis and Fitness Centre in Bamber Bridge (behind Sainsburys supermarket). Club nights are Tuesday and Friday, commencing at 7pm to approximately 10pm.
