The Outdoor Season is Upon Us!
Yes, it's here! What a great start to the season with a great combined effort to extend our HQ at Furzenhall Road. Having acquired the shed next door, we now have room to spread out and store our equipment! We also now have new distance markers on the field and it is looking great for the new season. Lets all make the most of our great facilities on club nights. Hope you all have a great season!

The Sun Shone for Kestrels National
What glorious weather we've had this year for our two outdoor open tournaments this year! A fine community of archers basked in the late summer sunshine at the Kestrels Double National Tournament on September 11th. Several Kestrels archers walked away with awards following some stiff competition. Full report will follow soon! The results are now available on the Tournaments Page.
Kestrels AC Receives a Flypast at St George, Albion, Windsor Tournament!
Well, we can't guarantee this at all of our tournaments, but archers at the Kestrels St George, Albion and Windsor Tournament this year were entertained in the afternoon break this year by the RAF Red Arrows. Very nice of them to fly over in a nice arrow formation! The results are available on our Tournaments page along with details of all forthcoming open tournaments.
Heroic Kestrels So Close
Gravesend AC 11 v Kestrels AC 10
Despite a valiant effort, Kestrels just fell short of beating a strong Gravesend team in the latest round of the Archery GB Knockout Tournament. Well done to our team of Carl, Lorraine and Bradley Tebbs and Peter Jupp for making it such a close run thing. Good luck to Gravesend in the next round.
