About us

S.H.B.V. Sagittarius is the archery association of the University of Twente and of Saxion.
With about 40 members we shoot twica a week our arrows at the targets, either inside the sportscentre or at our range outside on which we can shoot till 90 meters.

The association was founded in the early 70’s and is therefore one of the oldest sports associations of the university. After shooting in the basement of the building Langezeijds, where we had our own range with bar, we moved to the sportscentre after Langezijds was closed.

Our members come from around the whole world with members from The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Indonesia and so forth. Many of our members are also competitevly active with archery and some of them even shoot in the higher Dutch classes.

Have you always wanted to learn archery or are you interested in becoming a member, come to one of our trainings and we will show you ropes and help you further in the world of archery.
