If you are interested in joining our club you can be sure of a warm welcome.

However, before we can accept you as a member, we have to insist on some basic minimum standards. This is for the safety of all club members and to make sure our insurance is validated. If you are new to archery, you need to attend a beginners course and receive a certificate of competency, once you have this you’re welcome to join.

If you are an established archer and want to change clubs, we would ask that you demonstrate you are a safe and competent archer either by way of a beginners certificate or a demonstration of your ability. We are similarly happy to accept affiliate members, for archers who are already a member of another club.

For more information please feel free to contact us
