The Protea Archery Club is one of the oldest and largest archery clubs in South Africa, and one of only three archery clubs in the greater Cape Town area. It is affiliated to the Western Province Archery Association as well as the Western Province association for the Physically Disabled. We welcome both abled and disabled archers. The club offers the only indoor archery range in Cape Town, used for all provincial indoor tournaments. Indoor archery takes place every Monday evening between 7-9 pm at the club.



If you are interested in starting archery as a sport, we will have group beginner lessons on Saturdays. The cost per person (must be 10yrs or older) in 2022 is R250.00 for the first time and R220.00 for any following sessions. This includes equipment hire and range fees and a 90 minute lesson under the guidance of qualified archery instructors.
Please note: We are presently a CASH ONLY setup.

What you need to do to book a slot for a Saturday session

  • Email us  at  proteaarchery@gmail.com and we will send you a form.
  • We require that you complete and return the form by close of business the Thursday (5pm) before the Saturday session

What you need to do on the day

  • It is essential to arrive before 12h00 for signing in and for us to issue suitable equipment. This is particularly important for first timers as lessons start promptly at 12.30pm. Unfortunately, we cannot accept late-comers after that.
  • Please bring cash
  • Wear closed shoes and bring a sun hat, sun cream, water (or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice ) and a sense of humour

All of the above is sure to give you a great start to this exciting fast-growing sport.

You are more than welcome to email us on proteaarchery@gmail.com for any further information or advice you may need.



We give guidance to schools interested in offering an unusual sport, which not only builds upper body strength, but also teaches concentration and a high degree of self discipline.


Protea has a special Golden Oldies section for veterans – we meet every Friday morning for tea, chat and flying arrows. Protea specialises in training paraplegics in archery – this is the one sport where wheelchair athletes can compete on equal terms with walkers. We will give you good unbiased guidance on buying the most suitable equipment at the best price.

Birthdays and Events
