Summer Months

From April up to the end of September, we shoot at Wigan Lane Playing Fields, situated adjacent to Duxbury Golf Course. Club nights are Tuesday and Thursday but we do occasionally shoot at weekends and members also shoot at different times provided that the field is available and at least two full members are present at all times.

Winter Months

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.


Although we have a relatively short history Chorley Bowmen and its members have had many achievements and successes over the years. These include;

  • Two Great Britain squad members

  • Six Lancashire squad members

  • Holders of several Lancashire records

  • Having hosted the Lancashire Championships, Northern Counties and the UK Masters
