Archery in South Bucks
Whiteleaf is a friendly archery club serving High Wycombe and South Buckinghamshire. The club is located at a dedicated field near Lacey Green.
We welcome all levels of skill and experience, from competitive tournament archers to those who just enjoy shooting down at the club. Most members shoot either recurve or traditional longbow and many shoot both disciplines. We are now pleased to welcome any compound archers in the area, as members or visitors.
We hold an annual Club Championship for recurve, a separate Club Longbow Championship, and a Chairman’s Shoot especially for our novice archers.
We run two tournaments each year: a Club Open Shoot and an Open Longbow Tournament which has proved extremely popular since its inception in 1997.
We also run beginners’ courses and in the summer the club offers “Fun Shoots” for local groups such as Scouts, Round Table, & Ladies Circle, and for Corporate Team Building & Birthday parties. Club members volunteer their time to help out, and the nominal fees help to boost club funds for further information see the contact sheet.
