Join the Club


If you are new to the sport you will have to complete a course before you can apply for membership. Beginners’ courses are usually held once a year, normally around September/October time. They will be advertised in the local press and on this website and must be booked and paid for in advance. Further information can be found on our Beginners’ Course page and from the Club Secretary.

Experienced Archers and Post Beginners

Archers who have shot previously with another GNAS or FITA club will be asked to provide details of their experience and the club so that we can obtain a reference. Depending on how long you have been out of the sport you may also have to come in for an assessment night.

People who have completed a beginners’ course elsewhere must provide proof of completion when they apply for membership. We only accept courses that have been passed within the previous 6 months.

Please note that there is often a waiting list for membership. All memberships are by invitation.

For a membership application form or to make further enquiries please contact the Club Secretary.
