Recruitment

We recruit new members in one of the following ways:

Introduction to Archery courses  where those new to archery will receive expert instruction and a general introduction to the modern sport of Archery. Courses are normally run twice a year (spring and autumn), conducted by our qualified coaches with use of our stock of high quality bows and accessories. Upon completion of the course, the trainee will receive a certificate confirming they have completed a course conducted under Archery GB guidelines and may join the Club.

To reserve a place on our beginner’s course please contact the Secretary

If applicants have formerly practised archery to an acceptable level (preferably as a member of an Archery GB affiliated club) they have the opportunity of joining, subject to a trial shoot where their abilities and awareness of safety rules will be assessed by 1 of our coaches. Please contact the Secretary.

Junior members over the age of 11 years are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult if under 16 years.
