As  a generalisation our membership grows throughout the Archery GB Annual Membership period (Oct-Sept) and then drops by 20% on renewal. This results in a growth in membership numbers year on year. By September this year (2020) we anticipate a membership of 280.

If our current project to install an all weather surface between the social terracing/covered shooting area and the shooting line is completed we can accommodate further growth in 2021 to around 300.

Current membership is comprised of the following groups and bow types:
