Return to Outdoor Archery

In line with the First Minister’s announcement today, WAA is pleased to confirm that clubs can now take the necessary steps to re-open and welcome our archers back to our sport as from Monday 22nd June.

Only outdoor shooting is currently allowed and everyone will need to follow the current Welsh Government guidelines on social distancing and travel.

Archery clubs, archers and coaches MUST follow the latest guidelines and recommendations laid out by Archery GB. Specific guidance clubs, archers and coaches can be found on the Archery GB website:

Guidance for Clubs

Guidance for Archers

Guidance for Coaches

Please note that at the time of writing, these guides do not reflect the announcement today that non-contact sport can resume in Wales but we are working with AGB to update these as soon as possible.

WAA very much welcomes the announcement today and hope that all our archers can now safely return to shooting from Monday 22nd June.  

Inter-County Match & Outdoor Championships - POSTPONED

WAA regrets to announce that the Inter-County Match and Outdoor Championships, due to be held at Myddelton College, Denbeigh on the 19th and 20th of September 2020 have been postponed due to the coronavirus. Archery GB have issued draft guidelines on the Return to Archery Competition, which will be reviewed by Tournament Organisers at a Webinar on July 28th, but we feel the competitions are not viable under the current conditions. We hope to hold the Inter-County Match and Outdoor Championships at the same venue next year.

New Rules of Shooting

Archery GB have released a new Rule Book.

Changes since the October edition are as follows:

Equipment - aligning the Archery GB Rules with the World Archery Rules. The rules for Compound, Recurve, and Barebow now reference the World Archery rule book directly. These rules are helpfully printed in Appendix F of the Archery GB rule book for ease of reference. This change will make it easier for archers, as for Recurve, Compound, and Barebow the rules are the same no matter which event you are at. This means that for Archery GB events we need to use the 12.2cm ring for checking Barebows.

Additional Rounds added on page 3.13 - to include WA 50m for Barebow, Double 70m & 50m Rounds, and Barebow Match Round.

Clarification of scoring for the Vegas 300 Round - 409A (e)(iii) "Rule 404 applies for scoring, with the exception that Compound Archers will score 10 for an Inner 10 and 10 for an Inner Gold (Rule 404(a)).

Please make sure you update all copies of your rule books, particularly any electronic versions.
