Archery competitions are a great way to meet people and have fun, whilst challenging yourself by scoring a round.
Most archery competitions are open to everyone, have a relaxed atmosphere, and beginners are always encouraged to give it a go. Competitions take place all over the county and you can generally find out where through your local club, counties website, or Archery GB’s website.
A good rule of thumb is….. Ifyou hit the target consistently at 20 yards, then you’re ready to try a competition. The winter season is a great time to get started as most competitions are based indoors, and the targets are approximately 20 yards away (depending on the round being shot)
For even more information a beginners guide to your first competition has been written by the SCAS Judges Committee… this is well worth a read.
