Join Us

We are currently open to new members who are already archers.  Please contact the Membership Secretary by email

Beginners will need to do a course first, either our own (see our Beginners' page) or a suitable one elsewhere. To be considered for membership of Abbey new archers should have attended a course which consists of a minimum of 4 sessions covering at least 8 hours of tuition (not on one day or over one weekend).

Fees vary according to your age and when in the subscription year you join.  We encourage potential members to come to the club to see the facilities and meet other members - please contact us if you would like to do this.

Membership Fees 1st October 2016 - 30th September 2017

The Club annual membership fees are:

   Seniors:  £85.50 
   Juniors (Under 18):  £25.10

There are discounted rates for the over 65's, those aged 18 to 24, students and disabled archers. Club membership fees and (some) affiliations are reduced on a pro-rata basis if you join after 1st January, 1st April or 1st July.

Fees include affiliation to Archery GB, the Southern Counties Archery Society, and the Hertfordshire Archery Association.


The recommended minimum age for membership is 8, once they have successfully completed a beginners' course.  Our shoots are family friendly as juniors and seniors shoot together.  Parents/guardians/carers need to accompany younger juniors. For the full details about this please see para. 4) of our Junior Consent Form.

Associate Membership

 You can apply for 'associate' membership if you are affiliated elsewhere, paying only the club element of the fees. The other club will remain your primary club for external competitions.
