PANTEG ARCHERY CLUB
In 1976 Llantarnam Archery Club was “born”. Over forty (40) years later the club and membership is as strong as ever, with a healthy waiting list ready to introduce people from the local and wider community to what is known as “the sport for all”-the sport of Archery. The longevity of the club has been due to the dedication and passion of its members who believe in, and constantly encourage, an ethos of participation, enjoyment and performance.
Llantarnam Archery Club members have represented Wales on a regular basis, Junior and Senior Teams for as long as the club has existed. The club is looked upon to supply Team Managers, National Judges and Coaches to further the progression of the sport in Wales; such is the depth of knowledge and professionalism here on our very doorstep.
Llantarnam Archers have held (and still hold) numerous Welsh, National, European and World records-in both Indoor, Outdoor and in Field disciplines, travelling and competing all over the country every weekend of the year. Closer to home, the club runs regular competitions which range from “fun shoots”, through to Welsh County and National Championships and on to World Record Status competitions that see archers from all over the UK participate.
In the last ten years alone, the club has seen a number of its’ members compete at the highest level of the sport; Wales at the Beijing, London and Rio Paralympics.
Llantarnam is many things to its’ members, “grass roots” enjoyment and participation stand alongside the insight and support available for those at the outeredge of “elite” performance and preparation. We, at Llantarnam Archery Club are not only very proud of our heritage, but excited by what the future potentially holds for us in respect of continued growth and achievement within the community, Wales and UK as a whole.
