Membership

Membership of Warlingham Archery Club is open to all members of the community irrespective of ability. Our primary activity is target archery.

Becoming a member

We recruit new members in one of the following ways:

  1. 1
    Introduction to Archery courses  where those new to archery will receive expert instruction and a general introduction to the modern sport of Archery. Courses are normally run twice a year (spring and autumn), conducted by our qualified coaches with use of our stock of high quality bows and accessories. Upon completion of the course, the trainee will receive a certificate confirming they have completed a course conducted under Archery GB guidelines and may join the Club.
    To reserve a place on our Introduction to Archery course, please contact us.
  2. 2
    If applicants have formerly practised archery to an acceptable level (preferably as a member of an Archery GB affiliated club) they have the opportunity of joining, subject to a trial shoot where their abilities and awareness of safety rules will be assessed by 1 of our coaches.

Note: Junior members over the age of 11 years are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult if under 16 years. 


Annual subscriptions
