The Marlborough Bow Hunters Club is a local, solely volunteer and non-profit club, designed to bring together local New Zealand Bowhunters Society (NZBS, our national body) members to introduce our sport of Archery to any and all budding archers. We aim to provide a safe place for people to come and meet us, try out our sport and get to know who we are and what we do. We love encouraging the young and old into our beloved sport and are always excited and enthusiastic when we discover new people wanting to try archery.
Our course is situated up the Waihopai Valley on our Club Presidents property, which is where we are hosting the 62nd Annual NZBS tournament this year over Queens Birthday weekend. We have regular shoots and social get-togethers up at our course and are always happy to welcome new-comers to these events.
Get in touch with us today if you wish to join us in the future! Keep up to date with us via Facebook and Instagram.
