A Visitor is an archer who is either affiliated to Archery GB through another club, or a direct member of Archery GB. If you are already a member of another Archery GB affiliated club you are welcome to shoot with us on club nights by prior arrangement with the secretary . So as not to void our insurance you will be required to show proof of current Archery GB membership before shooting; No card, no shooting!

Alternatively you can apply for Associate Membership which is currently £124 per year. This is for archers from another club with membership to Archery GB, GWAS and GAS. See above for details of joining.
