The club was formed in the summer of 1988 with three members from Norton Archery Club (Richard Rigby, Steve Allt and Ian Methven). The outdoor shooting started at Leek Hockey Club, Macclesfield Road, Leek and has stayed there since. The indoor shooting was at Milward Hall Youth and Community Centre at Salisbury Street, Leek. The club had to move to Leek High School, Springfield Road, Leek when renovations at the youth club made archery impossible. In 2010 the club started shooting at Biddulph High School for one night a week. From September 2011 all indoor shooting will be at Biddulph.
Beginners courses have been held in the summer months since the club was formed. Courses are now held throughout the year, see the "Courses" section for more information.
The club puts on a "Have a Go" activity at the Leek show (Saturday 28th July 2012)

During the summer we shoot at the ground of "Leek Hockey Club" on Macclesfield Road, Leek, Staffordshire, ST13 8LD. We mainly meet twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is an additional practice time on Saturday afternoons if people want it.
The club has two teams in a postal league. For this, we shoot a short metric round once a month. In addition to the postal league competition, we shoot a non-short metric round for a "club" competition each month.
The club also has a long bow team in a postal league. for this we shoot a National round once a month.
