About us

Shipley Bowmen began as the brainchild of Phil Baxter, the first and current Club Chairman. After Phil and Stephen Allen (our Club Coach) had braved torrential rain to put on an archery demonstration at Knepp Castle during the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Celebrations the idea of starting up a new, local, archery club was born.

The Inaugural meeting of the (then) un-named, Club was held on 30th July 2012 with Phil and Stephen, joined by several interested people from Shipley Village and elsewhere.
