About Us

Archery has been a prevalent sport in St Andrews since the 16th century, with regular mentions of student archery practice in Butts Wynd (the archery straw bosses were originally referred to as butts) and the occasional uprising, as well as the occasional rivalry with golf! The University has also been hosting the Silver Arrow competition since the 17th century. The sport died out for a short while in St Andrews during the 18th and 19th centuries before being reinstated in the 20th century (along with the thankfully discontinued suggestion of archery blazers), where it continues, to this day.

Saints Archery is organised and run by our friendly committee. You'll see us at sessions and weekly socials, so come and say hi and feel free to ask any questions about the club. You can get to know us a bit below:
