Welcome to Archers of Bridlington and Burton Agnes

Based in the East Riding of Yorkshire the club offers locals and visitors archery facilities.

Bridling ton Archers have developed since being founded as a target club by Denis Walker in the mid 60’s, moving shooting grounds on several occasions.

We have been based at Burton Agnes since 1986. The club changed its name in 2011 when we were fully integrated into the Burton Agnes Sports Club and are now known as Archers of Bridlington & Burton Agnes. Also known as ABBA.

All members are expected to conform to GNAS/Archery GB dress code and rules of shooting and to observe the archery code of etiquette. ABBA also has a second dress code which is black and red tops with plain black trousers.

Annual membership covers both outdoor and indoor shooting and allows for members to become free social member of the Bridlington Belvedere Golf Club.

Members can shoot Recurve (Olympic style and Barebow), Compound and Longbows. Details of the different styles of bow are discussed elsewhere on this website. Members can shoot Crossbows at the discretion of the club, subject to GNAS/Archery GB rules.


The club holds two competitions every year. The ABBA DABBA DO for longbows and the INDOOR PORTSMOUTH for recurve, longbow and compound bows.
