The club competes in two competition leagues: BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) and NEUAL (North of England Universities Archery League). There are categories for both experienced and novice archers, so everyone has a chance to get involved without feeling outclassed. Transport is provided to all competitions – by Team Durham for BUCS, and directly from DUAC funds for NEUAL matches.
