Welcome to the home of archery in the Western Cape Province

Archery can be enjoyed by virtually anyone regardless of physical ability and facilities are available for both outdoor and indoor shooting. Archery appeals to participants who might otherwise not get involved in recreational activities and is indeed a sport for all.

Archery has many valuable lessons which transfers into other recreational activities, it:
– instills confidence,
– increases attention span,
– fosters a willingness of participants to try other sports activities.

Starting the sport couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is find a club in your area, give the listed contact a call and arrange a time that you can be introduced to the sport. Beginner classes are normally held on a Saturday and take a few hours. The classes are designed to introduce you to the sport. All equipment will be provided and matched as closely as possible to your build. Clubs will discourage you from buying your own equipment, at least for a few months, due to the nature of the sport, and club equipment is of a high standard to get you started.

Take your first steps, simply contact a club secretary and have fun!


The SA National Archery Association(SANAA) and the Regional Governing Body, the Western Cape Archery Federation (WCAF), conduct regular tournaments and events. Many of these tournaments are registered with World Archery (the International Target Archery Federation) and IFAA (the International Field Archery Association) which allows archers to claim Performance Awards as well as World Records in the various disciplines.

Today was the memorial service for Alex Fölscher who passed away on 4 August 2018. (This picture is from the service leaflet. )

Quite a few members of the archery community attended this well attended service. He was much loved and respected. During the time for tributes, Malcolm Todd spoke from the heart on behalf of the club and on behalf of the province.

It has been asked if archers may choose to wear something to indicate their sense of lose in regard to Alex. (Maybe black.) As long as all the other criteria of covering while in full draw, and footwear, is adhered to - please feel free to honour Alex in that way. Of course the alternative of wearing a black armband would certainly be in order if the individual archer is moved to do so and will not be a requirement to do. We will have a moment during practice to remember him.

See you all tomorrow.

As many of you have heard, Alex Folscher died suddenly in the early hours of Sat morning. I have to say the news left me reeling and brought on a great sense of sadness.
Alex and I have shared many hours on the line together. His determination and commitment to the sport set him up as one of our top recurve archers in not only the province but the country as well. Only his shoulder injury put a stop to that. Being the man he was, and rather than step away, Alex turned his talents to coaching and helping others excel in the sport he loved. He was a man who would always put his hand up to help even before the call went out, living life with honesty and integrity.

On behalf of Western Cape Archery Federation Executive, and broader archery community, I would like to put forward my heartfelt sympathy to all those who have been blessed by being close to this extraordinary man, but especially to his family and friends.
