Welcome to ICAC

Imperial College Archery Club caters for all abilities, from complete beginners to experienced archers. Imperial College student, staff, and alumni are welcome to our indoor sessions. These take place in Ethos Sports Hall over the Autumn and Spring terms. We provide full equipment, shooting instruction, and equipment advisory to members.

We are also always on the lookout for experienced archers to supplement our senior team. The club has an excellent competitive record at regional and national events, and provides numerous opportunities for archers to compete at their own level throughout the year. If you’re more of a social archer, you’ll be involved with the club’s friendly heart and soul in the variety of events organised throughout the year. Finally, as an archery club in a STEM university, we also host sessions discussing the mechanics of equipment, and the biomechanics of shooting.

If you have any questions just send us an email.
