What's it going to cost?
Club fees are currently set at £30 per quarter (£120 per year). However, please note that because we are still feeling our way into existence, club fees may be increased in the future (especially as we move to two nights per week). We're trying our best to keep costs to a minimum!
Note that you can either join as an affiliate member (with full voting rights, joining AGB/SAA through the Club) or as an associate member (with no vote at club business meetings) if you have already joined AGB/SAA directly or through another club. Club fees are the same for both affiliate and associate members.
AGB Affiliation fees
In addition to Club fees, all members must be affiliated to Archery GB and Scottish Archery (the national and regional governing bodies). Full fees for that come to £70 per year (although some discounts are available for pensioners, students, disabled archers, under 25s, and under 18s). There are also pro-rata reductions available if you join at certain points through the membership year. The full breakdown of affiliation fees can be found here.
Visiting archers are welcome on Club nights, on production of a current AGB membership card. The shooting fee for visitors is £4.00 as of April 2017.
When you reach the stage of buying your own equipment, you can expect to pay anything from £300 for a suitable bow, arrows, sights, case, and other personal kit. However, if you're new to archery, please don't buy anything without seeking advice first! During your first weeks at the club (especially if you've just completed our Beginners' Course) you can borrow club equipment while you work out what you're going to need.
