Welcome to Westlakes Archers

Entries for the 2017 Lake Macquarie Games close the day of competition.

The members of Westlakes Archers welcome you to come and try the very exciting sport of Archery.

Westlakes Archers was originally formed as an affiliation of the Y.M.C.A. Toronto. After splitting with the Y.M.C.A. the club acquired new grounds south of Toronto. The club has been situated at Fassifern Oval and its surrounding bushland since 1985.

The oval is used for target archery and the bushland is used for a challenging field course (marked and unmarked). Within the club’s history there has been representation in both the state’s Junior and Senior Teams and also the Australian Senior and Junior Teams.

Club members joined the Lake Macquarie Council in 1995 along with other sports as part of the Friendship Games in Hakodate (Japan) and made many friends which continues today.
