“SMAC” – The Club

South Moorlands Archery Club was founded in 1983 and was initially based in the South Moorlands Leisure Centre in Cheadle, Staffordshire. After moving to a number of different locations we found our home at The Cheadle Academy (formerly Cheadle High School) in 1992 and we have been there ever since.

We are a small, friendly, informal club with about twenty five members of all ages and sexes, but we have equipment and facilities to accommodate more so new members are always welcome! We’ve got two qualified coaches as well as several experienced members and they are always willing to help and advise old and new members alike.

Whether you want to shoot at the Olympics, enter national competitions or just shoot for fun – that is fine with us and we will help you on your way.

We are affiliated to Archery GB through Staffordshire County Archery Association, and we are fully insured through Archery GB.

Beginners Courses

For information on our beginners courses or “have a go” sessions, please see our courses page.


If you are an experienced archer interested in joining the club then please contact us. You’ll also need to be a member of Archery GB, but you can join both Archery GB and SMAC at the same time – you will just need to show your previous membership with a club or Archery GB so we can ensure you are safe to shoot.

Club membership fees are £120 per year, payable quarterly, which cover the costs of running the club, hiring the facilities, etc.


In addition to club fees, Archery GB membership fees are payable annually and the current cost can be found on the fees page on the Archery GB website (approx £45 / year for an Adult) – this includes your individual public liability insurance.
