In order to shoot, you need insurance. You can get this by becoming a member of one of the archery governing bodies
- the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) recently re-named Archery GB for target
- the English Field Archery Association (EFAA) or the National Field Archery Society (NFAS) for field archery.
Joining Silver Arrow Archery Club which has its own insurance
Joining an archery club
Look for an archery club in your area.
Here at Sparrow Hall Farm, we are home to Silver Arrow Archers (Archery GB)
We also have our own club
Silver Arrow Archery
In Hemel Hempstead there is Hemel Hempstead Archers (Archery GB)
In Beaconsfield there is Whitemark Bowmen (EFAA)
In Westcott there is Westcott Archers (Archery GB and NFAS)
We would recommend visiting the club and meeting the members before you join. Each club has a different way of working and a different “personality”. So see which one you feel most comfortable with. If you are thinking of enrolling any junior members - check out the club’s policy and support mechanisms for youngsters.
Once you have completed your beginners course, it is a good idea to join an archery club.
This gives you some structure for your shooting and also allows you to mix with other archers who can teach you a lot about the sport and introduce you to competitions, etc.
