How can I join the club?

If you have never done archery before you will need to go on a beginners course.

If you have done archery in the past (at a different club for example) you will have to prove that you have completed a beginners course by providing a copy of the certificate or prove you have experience in archery by providing a Archery GB / G.N.A.S. membership number.

Field archers would need to provide affiliation to a governing body and then complete a refresher course to bring you up to speed with target archery.
