As of 7/11/2019, we no longer have access to Mansfield’s Memorial Park Practice Field. I made a mistake, and the Mansfield Recreation and Parks Department has revoked our use permit for the field starting 7/11/2019.
I am so sorry for mistake I made.
Ace Archers JOAD Outdoor Practice Field can now be used by everyone! The field is the Memorial Park Practice Field, where we hold the Outdoor Warm-ups, and the Outdoor Archer’s Cup. Memorial Park is at the corner of Church and Hope Streets in Mansfield, MA. The field is open on Saturdays and Sundays, starting 4/14/2019, from 8:00 am to 11:45 am until 8/4/2019. There is an hourly fee to use the field.

The hourly fee depends on whether you help set-up the field and/or tear down the target matts on the field. If you help set-up and/or tear down the target matts, the fee is $15/hour/person. If you do not help with set-up and/or tear down, the fee is $20/hour/person. You can pay in cash, credit card, debit card or check. Payment is due before you leave the field.
This year, 2019, there are 24 lanes 2 person lanes! There may be a double line, but I tend to doubt it.
The distances are 20 metes to 90 meters.
Target faces are included in the rental fee.
There is no rental archery equipment at the Outdoor Archery Practice Field. You need to have your own bows, arrows, quivers, etc.
As you know, the parking lot is about 100 yards from the practice field, so you will have to bring your equipment a reasonable distance. You may bring a canopy to set-up for shade.
For the Weather Policy, which will help you understand when the Outdoor Practice Field will be closed, please see Weather Policy.
