Welcome to the website of The Lasswade Archery Club which was founded in 1979, making it one of the oldest in Scotland.
Random Archery Tip
Archery Facts: When choosing the spine of your new arrows, the length to use in your calculations is the actual distance from your string to your arrow rest at full draw, so is normally an inch or three less than your arrow length - the club has a special arrow to help in measuring this.
The club's location next-door to Dalkeith, and close to Edinburgh, Musselburgh and Tranent means that it attracts members from Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian and as far south as the Borders. We welcome archers of all abilities and ages; whether beginners, novices or experienced; teenagers and octogenarians; able-bodied or not. The club welcomes all bow-styles; we currently have members who shoot Olympic Recurve, Compound, Recurve Barebow and occasionally English Longbow or American Flatbow.
If you have any enquiries about membership, archery lessons or want to learn how to start shooting safely on one of our beginners courses, please get in touch with the President or via the Contact Form.
We practise on Wednesday evenings between 7.00pm and 9.00 pm, and on Saturday afternoons between 3.00pm and 5.00pm. From April/May until the end of August/September we train outdoors at our outdoor archery range at Grove Farm, Bonnyrigg‚ Midlothian EH19 3JD.
We practice indoors from September till the end of April in the sports hall at The Lasswade Centre (in Bonnyrigg). The centre provides an excellent, well lit archery range, with space for nine bosses during practice sessions, and up to thirteen bosses when running competitions, which are usually UK Record Status.
