Hinxworth Archery Club sends our deepest sympathy  

to the Royal Family at this sad time.

Autumn events

For the first time since 2019 the Club will be hosting three big events over the Autumn.  The 2022 Club Championships will take place on Sunday 16th October; a Halloween Fun Shoot on Sunday 30th October and a Christmas Party in the Village Hall on Saturday 10th December.  Details will be circulated to members in due course.

Winter Indoor Shooting

We are pleased the Barn at Edworth will be available for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings over the Winter, starting in October (date to her confirmed).


And more 

We are very happy to welcome to our Club six more new members straight from our July 2022 beginners course.  

Lots of beginners

We welcomed seven beginners to the start of our current course on Saturday 9th July with four more to join the course over the next few weeks.  It is pleasing to see archery is proving very popular over the last couple of years.


We are very happy to have several people from the April 2022 beginners course join the Club.   A warm welcome is extended to all of you.

Training Co-ordinator

Glenn has taken up the role of Training Co-ordinator, a new role within the Club, and will be responsible to managing the beginners' courses.   

A good job

A huge thank you to the small working party who cleared out the containers on Sunday 22nd May.  It desperately needed doing and we have gained much needed space and access room.


To celebrate Archery GB's Start Archery Week  we held a 'Have-a-go'  on Saturday 14th May 2022 on the Recreation Ground.   It was a fine sunny afternoon and over 30 members of the public attended with a number expressing interest in joining our beginners' course.

Winter Leagues 2021/22

Our archers achieved excellent individual scores in the Hertfordshire Archery Association's winter leagues.  In the Portsmouth compound competition Neil took 1st place and David W. (just a very few points off 2nd) 3rd place.  Derek took 1st place in the longbow competition with Lee 5th in barebow.  In the Frostbite competition Neil took 1st place and David W. (just a very few points off 2nd) the 3rd place in compound.  Dave C. took 1st place in the longbow competition and Lee 7th in barebow.
