History of Quicks

Quicks the Archery Specialist was started in 1949 as part of a sports business; the founder David George Quick then set up on his own in 1959. He travelled around the UK with the founder of Egertons (the Target Makers) visiting sports clubs of many of the UK industrial companies. D.G. Quick helped set up a large number of works clubs and grew the sport of archery in the UK in its early days. The company of Quicks has tried to continue this approach to building the sport over the years.

Quicks' Catalogue "The Bowman's Guide"

Quicks has produced a Bowman's Guide every year from 1959 up until 2015-16, showing a wide range of equipment for Target, Field and Longbow archery. The Guide grew over the years to a 100 page full colour A4  catalogue which was posted to customers all around the world. From 2017 due to the fast changing nature of modern archery equipment, an annual printed catalogue is no longer viable and so the Quicks online webshop will replace future catalogues. If there is anything you would like to see brought online that you miss from the printed version then please get in touch and we'll see what we can do.



We have two archery Pro Shops selling our archery equipment in the UK, all staffed by expert shooters to ensure the best level of customer service and technical assistance. All shops stock a vast range of archery equipment.

Our main pro shop and head office is on the South Coast in Waterlooville, Hampshire. We also have a pro shop in Honiton, Devon. Our shops are staffed by experienced archers and have a trial area to enable you to try out equipment for the best fit when you come in to purchase from us.
