Option 2 – Same as everyone else

A simple option that allows disabled archers to pay the same club fee as everyone else. The only difference being the governing body fees which are £17, making your total yearly cost £217.

Guest shooters must provide proof of Archery GB membership and pay a flat £4 per night that they shoot.
