The Leicestershire and Rutland Archery Association (L&RCAA) was formed in May 1950 and is run by volunteers from different archery clubs within the county. The County committee meets once a month (except July) at the Kirby Muxloe Sports Club.
If you are a club within Leicestershire and Rutland, you are entitled to appoint a representative to come along to the meetings and report back to your club.
We extend a very warm welcome to any archer within the county and we are anxious to dispel any fears you may have about coming to the meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet socially with your fellow archers and to hear how county business is conducted.
