Like most, if not all, archery clubs we pride ourselves on being a club that welcomes new members. However from time to time we do have a waiting list.
We accept both Senior and Junior members, either as seasoned archers or as beginners. Once established as an archer the amount you wish to spend on your sport is similar to many other sports. There is no need for it to be very expensive, unless of course you are planning on representing team GB in the London 2012 Olympics!
Certainly at the outset, whilst you are deciding whether archery is for you or not, the club will provide assistance with equipment in order to avoid unnecessary expense.
The cost of membership to the Senior club is £100 a year. The Senior fees are collected at two stages in the year. This helps to 'defer' the overall costs. If you join mid way through the 'club' year then your fees are calculated on a pro rata basis. The remaining half of the club membership, together with the GNAS, region and county fees are collected in July/August of each year in order to ensure your GNAS membership card arrives at the beginning of October. The GNAS year runs from October to September.
The Junior membership is £65 per year. There is nothing else to pay after this fee has been paid. This fee includes all shooting fees whether you come along once, twice or in the summer three times a week.
Junior membership fees are payable on joining the club with renewals occurring in October each year.
GNAS membership is required to provide insurance for the club and to allow members to shoot at any other GNAS affiliated club.
