Joining CMO Bowmen as a full club member has many benefits other than just being able to shoot at the ground.
To shoot at the club unless you are on one of our training courses you must be a member of Archery GB. You can become a member of Archery GB either by joining them as a Direct Member or by affiliating to them as a Club Member by joining a club like ours. There are a range of ways that you can join CMO Bowmen but a Full Club Membership represents the best in terms of value and benefits.
Our membership fees are annual and for Full Members include the yearly costs to affiliate to Archery GB, The Southern Counties Archery Society and The County of Surrey Archery Association. You can find out more about these organisations by following these links:
Crucially, by joining Archery GB (which you do when you become a full member of our club) you are covered by their insurance policies when you shoot and if you want to shoot at archery tournaments, they will need to see your Archery GB card.
As well as affiliation to these archery bodies, our full membership fees allow you to shoot at the ground on any of the club days. We shoot outdoors all year round on Tuesday mornings, Saturday and Sunday, and during the summer season we also shoot outdoors on Wednesday nights. That works out to around 28p per session to shoot as a full member.
Not only do you get to shoot at a ground with one of the best views over London, there are a host of other benefits to being a club member. A Full Member of CMO Bowmen benefits from:
- Shooting all year round at our ground in Croydon
- Affiliation for one year to Archery GB, SCAS and CSAA
