Hertford Company of Archers (HCA) is an established and thriving archery club based just outside Hertford, at Bayford Park, Bayford Hall Farm, on Bayford Lane. We are affiliated to Archery GB, the national governing body for archery.

Beginners Courses

We run Beginners’ Courses several times a year. The course is a structured set of sessions introducing archery to the complete novice. You need to complete this course in order to join our club, or any other AGB affiliated club.

The course, run over 4 weekly sessions, will provide you with an introduction to the sport of target archery. The qualification you received will allow you to join any Archery GB registered club in the UK, including our own!

The course will give you a grounding in range safety; scoring; how to setup a recurve bow; barebow and freestyle archery techniques; and skills and drills to help you continue your archery journey after the course. The cost is £85

Our latest course bookings are available here.

While we don’t guarantee entry to our club after the course you’ll be very welcome to discuss joining us, if you want to continue shooting.
