Sports and Societies


There are currently ten sports clubs under the HAC Sports banner. Members of these clubs represent the HAC throughout the year on the sports fields and are drawn primarily from the veteran membership and the active Regiment. Uniquely, however, members of the public are welcome to join these clubs too - if you are interested in finding out more, see each club's details below or complete the enquiry form.


Veteran and active members of the Company are also eligible to take part in our many societies. Through regular events, these societies provide further opportunities for veteran and active members to develop their camaraderie and thus remain advocates of the Regiment throughout wider society. Educational lectures and networking events further develop members' understanding of the HAC's unique standing throughout history.

Cricket has a long tradition at the HAC, with evidence showing that it has been played on Artillery Garden since at least 1725. The current club fields three sides: the 1st, 2nd and A XIs.

Season, Fixtures and Training

All teams play a full schedule of weekend fixtures throughout the summer. Matches usually take place on the high-quality grounds of Artillery Garden at Armoury House, along with the hospitality which the Club can offer.
