The club has re-opened for restricted shooting under the guidelines issued by Archery GB. In practice that means turning up for booked sessions – no socialising, just shooting, and wearing a mask while setting up and taking down.
There is hand sanitizer provided in the Trailer and in the Store for people to sanitize their hands after set-up and take-down.
To participate, please book your sessions through the OVA Community Forum. More details available in the forum.
As of 24th March 2020 the club is closed for all activities which involve gathering.
The school has now closed to all students and the building is to be deep-cleaned pending a future return date. There are no visitors allowed on-site, including outside on the field.
Archery GB has suspended all shooting until further notice. We are already closed because of the school, but be aware that any open shoots or competitions are also suspended.
