Club History

New Castle Hundred Archers Club was established as a Delaware Not for Profit corporation in 1953. Our charter had one purpose in mind; to further the sport of archery. Our charter hasn’t changed. In March 1957 the club purchased their present 13 acre location. The club has been in a constant state of improvement ever since. Serving the public and our members we offer group lessons, private lessons, community programs, coaching, tournaments and competitions, while always encouraging good sportsmanship.  We also promote hunting and fishing and the conservation of natural resources.

Our facility is second to none in Delaware. The clubhouse includes an 18 lane indoor shooting range supporting distances up to 30 yards. Additionally our clubhouse is handicap accessible and has a complete kitchen area, handicap accessible restrooms and an 18 lane. Our club is equipped with compound and recurve bows to facilitate public classes and for member use. Our club house sits on 13 acres of land.  There is an outdoor practice range providing practice targets out to a distance of 80 yards. The outdoor practice range also has a covered shooting pavilion.  A 28 target field course wraps around the New Castle Hundred Archers property winding through our rolling woodlot on a walking path, testing your skills with marked yardage targets with shooting distances from 10 to 80 yards. For the bowhunter we have three large elevated platforms to assist them in fine-tuning their skills. All this has been made possible through the hard work and dedication of our members. Funds to operate our club are generated through membership dues, fees charged at our tournaments and competitions, public lessons, private instruction, as well as fundraising efforts.  All of the club facilities are open to the members 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All that is required to be a member is an interest; so we extend to you and your family an invitation to join us in what we believe will prove to be a rewarding experience.

We are often asked, “What does the 100 or Hundred represent in the name of your club?” Well, time to put the mystery to rest. The use of the term Hundreds dates back to early colonial days of our country, and was a term used in the division of land in England. British colonists brought the term with them. It was adopted by William Penn, as the Lord Proprietor of the province of Pennsylvania and the counties on the Delaware. “Hundred” is a division of land smaller than a county and roughly equivalent to the size of a town/township. Delaware is now the only state that still uses Hundreds as a land division, but mostly just for property tax assessments.  Our club is located within the “New Castle Hundred”, as you may have guessed by now. If you’re interested in learning more about “Hundreds”, read more here.
