FoBB Membership Information

Beginners Courses

We regularly run beginner's courses, in accordance with Archery GB (AGB) Rules, throughout the year. These consist of six two-hour sessions, generally over six weeks.


At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate of training and we hope that you'll consider joining The Forest of Bere Bowmen as a member. Although the certificate will also allow you to join any AGB affiliated club.

FoBB Membership

We welcome new members who are already qualified archers, either as full members affiliating to AGB through FoBB or as Associate members, affiliating directly or via another club.

New members are generally required to complete a six-week probationary period. During the six weeks probationary membership, archers are expected to shoot at least once a week with an ordinary or associate member and on several occasions in the presence of one or more Committee members. After this period the Committee will consider and vote on acceptance for membership.

Membership Fees

Membership fees are made up of several elements, including subscriptions to Archery GB, Hampshire Archery and Southern Counties Archery, each of which have different levels depending o age and status of the archer. In addition fees are tapered throughout the year.


As a result it is difficult to accurately illustrate the fees due so, if you are interested in joining, please contact for details

According to the club constitution, renewal payments are due on the third Sunday in September each year.
