Archery is a fun and exciting sport and by following a few simple yet essential rules we know you are going to have a great time.
Clophill AC has been established for over 40 years and is affiliated to the Bedfordshire County Archery Association (BCAA), the Southern Counties Archery Society (SCAS) and to the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS), which is the national body.
We are widely regarded as one of the most successful archery clubs in the country with several member’s, both senior and junior, shooting for the county, for England and for Great Britain, including the 2008 Olympics!
Members of Clophill AC are lucky enough to have the use of their own field for practice and competitions. In winter we shoot indoors at the Alameda Sports Hall.
Some of our members shoot at national, county and local levels whilst others simply shoot for pleasure. Whatever level you decide to shoot at you are sure to enjoy the social side of the club, with regular fun shoots, barbeques, a Christmas party and dinner just a few of the activities on offer thanks to the efforts of our dedicated social secretary!
The club has members with a vast wealth of experience. If as a member you need help, there is always someone willing to assist, you only have to ask.
The membership fees to the club are one of the lowest in the area. To finance our activities, we hold a number of very popular events including several world record and UK record status tournaments throughout the year. Everybody is welcome to enter these competitions, don’t leave it too late to book as they are very popular and fill up quickly. Even if you are not ready to compete we would ask that you come along anyway as help to run these events is always welcome, and a great way of getting to know your fellow archers off the shooting line.
