After the Beginners’ Course you may be invited to join Ballands Bowmen.   The cost of joining Ballands Bowmen: Adults £30 or Juniors (under 16) £15  (2016 Fees).


At this stage you need to purchase your own equipment.  It is advisable to do this with the advice of a senior Club Member.  Costs vary depending on what type of bow you select.


Membership will enable to you to shoot with supervision at any of the Club Venues but you will not, at this stage, be able to enter Open Shoots. You may continue to shoot at Club venues only.  However, if you want to shoot in open competition you will need to do an Outdoor Course at Penselwood; the number of sessions needed will depend on the individual. 

 

Once you have reached a satisfactory standard and wish to take part in National Field Archery Society (NFAS) Open Shoots you will need to join NFAS. The annual cost of membership is Adult £20 and Under 16 £10 (2016/17 Fees).  Members who are under 18 will need a Parent to accompany them at Open Shoots and that Parent needs to be an Associate Member of NFAS which costs £5 at 2016 Fees.
