Kent Archery Association AGM

When the date of this year's AGM was discussed at last year's event, there was concern that the normal date (the 3rd. Sunday of November) might clash with a tournament; it has turned out that this will not in fact happen and so the KAA AGM will be held on its customary date, Sunday, 16 November 2014 at Medway Archers' clubhouse.

We apologise for any confusion that might have been caused.

Official notification should be received by all Club Secretaries and Direct Members by Sunday, 07 September 2014; if any Club Secretary or Direct Member does not receive their copy, please urgently contact the County Secretary and copy to the Chairman.

You want to take up Archery?

If you haven't done archery before, or have only tried it in a "taster session" at school or on holiday, and now you want to do it for real, then follow these four easy steps:

  1. Take a look at the "New Members" section on our FAQ page;
  2. Read through our short Introduction to Finding a Club;
  3. Look for a convenient club using our Interactive Club Map;
  4. Use the contact details provided to contact the club direct for details of beginners' courses.

Remember don't buy any archery equipment until you have finished the beginners' course - use of basic equipment is included in the price of the beginners' course. Once you know that archery is for you, your new club will give advice and help you select the bow, arrows and other bits and pieces that will suit you and your budget.

If you are disabled or visually impaired, it is still likely that you will be able to shoot; some clubs are specialists in helping people with disabilities and a number of others have a lot of experience to call on - these are specially marked in the Interactive Club Map and Club List. However, please bear in mind that not all clubs will feel qualified to work with all types of disability, so please call them and discuss your particular needs and they will do everything they can to help.
