TBC Field Archers .
The TBC Field Archers Inc. (TBC) commenced in 1979 by a small group of people who “wanted somewhere to shoot a bow and arrow”. Since then, TBC has remained a strong and highly respected field Archery Club in the State.
Field archery involves shooting at targets of varying and often unmarked distance, typically in woodland and rough terrain.
The club offers a field archery course, consisting of 20 targets, set on 35 acres of picturesque hilly terrain. There is also a coaching and practice area that is flat and easily accessible.
In addition to these targets, the club has over forty 3D targets for use in club competition.
The club also has a substantial practice range with all day practice available from ten to thirty meters. Our target facilities offer a wide variety of activities for its members and cater for the majority of equipment levels and types.

What is field archery?
A Sport For The Whole Family - Field archery involves shooting at targets of varying and often unmarked distance, typically in woodland and rough terrain.
Archery is one of the few sporting activities that people of all ages can freely enjoy and not be forced into retirement or become a spectator through the normal ageing process. As a sport it will appeal to all ages from 8 to 80, +/- a few years either way, whatever their ability, providing they can draw a bow suitable to their style and aspirations.
It is one of a small number of sporting activities that allows all family members to compete at the same time and at the same venue but within their own class. A typical shooting session will have juniors shooting at distance’s dependant on age, along side the ladies and men. Within these age groups there are a number of separate disciplines based on a different bow class i.e. long bow, recurve, compound etc.
Although archery is an Olympic sport and is highly competitive it is also at the other end of the scale a sociable sport with every conceivable level of participation in between. Participants find their own level whether it is competitive and/or social and can really enjoy themselves in a true and friendly fashion.
So if your looking for an activity that all the family can participate in or even as an individual, then field archery is for you.
