The club is always keen to welcome new members. As part of the ArcheryGB all beginners must undergo beginner training before being allowed to join a club and shoot. We run beginners’ courses periodically throughout the year and monthly “Have-a-Go” sessions so that it is possible to try archery before committing to a Beginners Course. Please see the Beginners section for more details.
PLEASE NOTE: The minimum age for club membership is 10 years
We now offer three types of membership: Full Member, Associate Member and Non-Shooting Member. In addition to these, we welcome affiliated non-members to shoot as visitors. To avoid disappointment please contact the club secretary prior to arrival. Thank you.

If you are interested in joining the club then please feel free to come along to any one of our evening sessions, or see the Events page for details of our have-a-go sessions.
