Royston Heath Archery Club is a small and friendly club with around 50 members. We are all keen amateurs and we love to talk about and introduce archery to new people.
We are a target archery club and currently have members that shoot a range of different bow types, including recurve, longbow, barebow and compound. RHAC is affiliated to Archery GB (formerly known as the Grand National Archery Society, GNAS, of Great Britain) and we shoot according to their rules. Abiding by their rules gives the necessary insurance cover.
Shooting regular rounds allows members to gain and maintain their handicap as well as many other awards. Though some members confine their shooting to our club rounds on the Heath, there are many opportunities to take part in a wide range competitions. We usually take large contingents to local competitions and we have had members shoot in national competitions as well as representing Hertfordshire county.
The club has five Archery GB qualified coaches and a number of experienced archers to help members progress. If members show sufficient desire to practice hard and improve, we can put them in contact with County squads and coaches too.
