Barbados Archery Club Information


The Barbados Target Archery association was formed in November 1996 and went on to be called the Barbados Archery Association. To date, it's now called the Barbados Archery Club and is responsible for the development of archery in Barbados.


The BAC operates from its range at Bellevue Gap, Waterford, St. Michael and members meet regularly to practice and compete in monthly tournaments.


The BAC runs orientation sessions every Wednesday and Saturday afternoons for anyone interested in trying archery, except when there is a tournament. This is intended to introduce newcomers to the sport. The club consists of several Level 2 Coaches and a Level 3 Coach.


The Range Fees are as follows:


There is a limit of 8 people at any one class, which are run from 9.00 to 10.00 a.m. and 10.00 to 11.00 a.m. on Sundays and from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending please e-mail: barbadosarcheryclub@gmail.com. Close fitting “T” shirt, long pants and an enclosed pair of soft shoes are required. Water is sold at the range.


There is a 3-month probationary period for new members. During this time, you will be expected to demonstrate a responsible attitude towards archery in general and safety precautions in particular. Members have gone on to represent Barbados at archery tournaments all over the world. Archery is a sport for all ages and a great family sport. It teaches discipline and respect for others and allows for wholesome competition in a sport without violence.


Association Subscriptions:

At the end of the probation, if you are confirmed as a member, the balance of the annual subscription is payable.


Archery equipment is available locally and via the internet, but only members of the Club are allowed to import equipment and must contact the Secretary for the necessary documents. The Club has a number of basic bows with which you can learn, but you are encouraged to have your own equipment as soon after your probation period as possible to allow other new comers to use the club equipment.


Archers compete in various archery events during the year with the 720 being the most popular. There are many other formats being shot including the Club Round which features a round robin elimination, field archery, clout archery and indoor archery.
