The Pilgrim Archers
Ingatestone's own friendly Archery Club               
Since our inception (celebrated our 60th Aniversary in 2013) we have always been a Mid Essex based club. We meet every Sunday in the village of Ingatestone (between Chelmsford and Brentwood), during the bright summer months we also meet on two midweek evenings.                
Pilgrim Archers are registered with Archery-GB (the sport's national governing body), who ratify and list the approved Member Clubs to ensure we provide a safe and knowledgeable centre for both your training and also the running of the regular club shooting days.
As a traditional Archery Club we specialise in the Olympic Standard Recurve Bow (with or without the accessories) or the very popular historic Longbow (the wooden one piece bow made popular by Robin Hood or Legolas in the Lord Of the Rings) forms of the sport, with a friendly, mostly adult membership of all abilities. During the Calendar year we compete for many Trophies and Cups (several on a handicap basis --- anyone can win these by shooting well on the day). The varied programme tests the members' skills in Archery in Target, Field and Clout disciplines (including Indoor Archery during the winter months).  In other words a well balanced and testing Annual Programme.
Finally, we are very fortunate to have two very well respected Essex County Level Coaches and we would welcome you into the Archery fold, where you can meet our friendly members and enjoy the sport with us. We do try to encourage all our members to progress at their own speed, to enter our many competitions and, perhaps with our many handicap competitions, even win a Trophy).
So whether you are looking for a competitive, relaxed, or just a friendly archery club to help you progress and enjoy a relaxed social session in the great outdoors, we would hope to cater for you.


Are You Looking for an Archery Club or are you new to Archery?



Pilgrim Archers run very good and competitively priced courses for beginners or, if needed, "Refresher" courses. These are scheduled by arrangement between Spring and Autumn with our leading Essex  Coaches.

Already an Archer?
We are happy to recruit new members, so if you already have a beginners course under your belt or are an experienced archer who has moved to a new area or want a change, just get in touch and see if we can offer what you are seeking.
Pilgrim, will try to provide the correct atmosphere for you - from very competative to a friendly casual approach.
