We welcome all Archery GB registered archers shooting either Recurve, Longbow and Compound disciplines.

You must have completed a recognised beginners course before you can join the club. We run beginners courses twice a year, if you are interested in taking up archery please see the Beginner's Course page. Before becoming a member you must be a member of Archery GB. This can be arranged through the club.

The minimum age for juniors that we can accept is 10 years old and in order to comply with the Child Protection Guidelines all juniors, under 18, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
