Membership and Fees

Shooting Members

To be able to shoot with any Archery GB club, individuals must have successfully attended a recognised ‘Beginners Course’. As a club we run regular courses, and also, subject to checking back with other clubs delivering beginners courses and following our own assessment, individuals can join the club. Likewise for individuals that have been out of the sport for a period, we conduct an assessment to identify a development plan and determine the best way forward.

Want to know more about beginners courses offered?

It should be noted that any assessment is about safe practices, particularly range safety and basic technique, we do not turn interested individuals away because they are not shooting high scores!

For juniors under 8, we do conduct a pre-beginners course assessment to ensure they are ready to complete a course.

The membership fees for 2019/20 October – October are as follows:

** There is currently a new members joining levy (£20) (Max £40 per family). This has been put in place to recognise all the work that existing members have contributed to purchase what is now one of the best archery facilities in the UK! Adjustments may be made for family groups or other exceptional circumstances.

New members Annual Fees (those joining the club for the first time), will be £40 (reducing to £20 on renewal). To help families, if more than 2 members, additional new members fees will be charged at just £20 annual first time membership.

If you join anytime from October to March a years fee is payable, after March only 50% of the fee is payable. In our opinion this is a ‘crazy’ rule but that is what Archery GB currently operate to.

Weekly Target Fees

I am sure we all agree that the shooting and membership fees are an absolute bargain for the facilities we use.  It is £4 for one or more attendances in a given week. With a reduction to £7 for 2 shooting members from the same family and even less if you opt to pay by standing order!

The system of paying by Standing Order is encouraged and does offer reductions (Just £12 per month). Let the Club Secretary (dpalsecretary@gmail.com) know if you want to take this option up.
