rchers of Jersey had a very busy 2012, tainted with the sad news at the beginning of the year with the sudden death of Tony O’Sullivan, one of our longest serving, most experienced and most loved members. Tony is sorely missed but we resolved that we should continue and make the club as successful and vibrant as he would have wanted.


Our club was beginning to grow at the end of 2011 and in spring 2012 we started shooting at Twin

Our members with Lord Jersey - Archers of Jersey open day, September 2012


Oaks Field at Radier Manor, which Lord Jersey has very generously agreed we can use. This wonderful new venue has enabled us to shoot at any time and in all weathers and has resulted in a general improvement in shooting standards. We took part in competitions in Guernsey and England and competed in the 2012 Senior Euronations and the European Commonwealth Regional Championships held in Guernsey where we were able to shoot against the best archers throughout the British Isles and beat our own personal best scores.


Our new field, the release of films featuring archery and of course the success of the Olympic and Paralympics Games, have all undoubtedly contributed to the huge number of enquiries we have had from people wanting to try their hand at archery or to join our club. Our ‘Have a Go’ at summer fêtes and at our own open day at Twin Oaks Field in September, were also extremely popular. We are very fortunate in having Lucy O’Sullivan, GB archer, as a member and were delighted she could give Lord Jersey her expert advice at our open day.


Whenever possible, Lucy happily coaches us.


We held a number of six week starter courses over the summer and in view of the explosion of interest in our sport, these will continue throughout 2013. These courses have proved to be very successful in recruiting new members, many of whom have shown real potential to do well.


Over this winter many of our members are participating in a postal archery competition in which we compete against clubs all over England in both indoor and outdoor “frostbite” competitions.


Archers of Jersey now has several eager new junior and senior members and we see the club continuing to expand during 2013 and beyond. Part of our development plan is to coach and encourage our younger members and put forward strong shooters for future Island Games. We are keen to ensure that archery is a sport that is accessible to people both young and old and of all abilities.
