The Bowmen of Petersfield club is open to both Junior and Senior Archers. An annual membership fee, renewable in September, is payable to join the club and a target fee is charged for each shooting session attended.

All shooting Club members must be members of Archery GB. Membership of Archery GB also requires affiliation to the appropriate County and Regional Archery Associations. For Bowmen of Petersfield this is Hampshire Archery Association (HAA) and Southern Counties Archery Society (SCAS).

For most club members Archery GB, HAA and SCAS affiliation is administered by the club secretary, and the fees involved collected as part of the annual membership renewal.

Members can choose to affiliate directly with Archery GB, or affiliate via another club. For these members they must confirm that their affiliation is active when first joining the club, and again at each renewal point. A valid Archery GB membership card will need to be shown to a member of the club committee as confirmation.
This also applies to visiting archers who wish to shoot at the club, either during a club shooting session or by entry to any club tournament.

Full details of how to join Archery GB, and the fees involved are available at the Archery GB website, and similarly for HAA and SCAS. Links to these websites are at the bottom of this page.

If you are interested in joining us then please contact the secretary who can give you more details of our membership.
Only experienced archers, including those who have recently completed a beginners course with another club are able to join directly. Anyone else interested in joining the club will be asked to complete the beginners course before their membership will be accepted.

The club subscription fee is due annually by the 1st October and we ask for all renewals to be made by mid September. There is a reduced fee available for those joining part way through the year, but this is not available to lapsed members rejoining within 18 months.

Our current (2020/21) membership fees for new members are:

  • £46 - Senior
  • £23 - Junior (under 18 on the renewal due date)

The current (2020/21) Archery GB, HAA and SCAS fees for new members are:

  • £55 - Senior (£48 Archery GB, £2 SCAS, £5 HAA)
  • £20 - Senior under 25 (£14 Archery GB, £1 SCAS, £5 HAA)
  • £17.50 - Junior under 18 (£14 Archery GB, £1 SCAS, £2.50 HAA)
Reduced rates are available for disabled archers.
Please note these rates are set by the appropriate bodies and may change at any time.
