About Pepperstock Archers

Pepperstock Archers were formed in 1984 and the club continues to thrive and grow.

The club is affiliated with ArcheryGB (formerly Grand National Archery Society – GNAS) as well as the Bedfordshire County Archery Association (BCAA) and the Southern Counties Archery Society (SCAS). We have around 30-35 members and a good mix of Junior, Senior, Male and Female archers. 

We always welcome new members young and old and take time and care to help beginners and improvers develop their techniques and abilities. Entry to the club is via one of our twice-yearly beginner's courses which run for 5 weeks in the Spring & Autumn. After completing the course we hope that you will go on to join our club and start to enjoy Archery as a pastime. During your first weeks as a member, you can use the club’s equipment whilst seeking the best advice on purchasing your bow. If you are an experienced archer; new to the area or returning to the sport after a break, we would be delighted to discuss your immediate membership.

Not everyone in the club is interested in competing and as a club, we respect that – some people are just looking to escape the stresses of modern life for a few hours and archery provides great therapy in that respect. Members who are interested in competing can develop at their own pace in a relaxed (non-pushy) environment and be coached and guided accordingly by our most experienced members. Many of our club competitions are handicap shoots which can bring trophy success as you grow your technique and score. Over the years we have found that our approach to competing has paid off with good successes at the county level and beyond. 

We run many Have-a-Go events each year in the Herts and South Beds area, such as the Harpenden Carnival, the Harpenden  Lions Highland Gathering, Slip End Village Day and other local events. Have-a-Goes are a great way for you to try your hand at the sport and find out more about getting into Archery. We provide tuition and guidance to help you get the most out of your experience and hopefully get one or two arrows in the gold.
