Woodford Archers


Welcome to our Club

Woodford Archers is based in Woodford Green, Essex. It was started back in 1951 and things have changed a lot since then! Today we are still a thriving club whose goal is to introduce as many people as possible to archery, and make it an enjoyable and fun sport.

The club is affiliated to our national governing body Archery GB (formerly Grand National Archery Society – GNAS) and through them our international body – World Archery (WA).

We are also registered with Essex and Suffolk County Archery Association for promoting archery in Essex and Suffolk for whom we run an annual clout shoot in the spring.
