You may well be enjoying the sensation of shooting a bow and watching the arrows fly. Now let's stop all that undoubted enjoyment and give yourself a challenge
Just click on the highlighted text to find more about the challenge.
First off have a go at shooting for a 252 badge at the shorter distances. Get yourself a Handicap and work towards the Classification Badges that are available for Outdoor and Indoor archery. The ArcheryGB Handicap Improvement Medal is awarded to an experienced archer who has the largest handicap improvement over the calendar year. The Presidents Medal has similar criteria but is for the improvement over the Winter Season.
There's a very nice badge to be won by hitting a 6 or 3 gold end. But it takes some doing.
Juniors have even more to go for with Progress Awards and for the real enthusiast go for the Junior Awards Scheme which sees challenges for you to meet throughout the year. If you get exceptionally good there are ArcheryGB Arrow Awards.
Jollys have a full calendar of trophy shoots through the summer where the challenge is to be the best on the day in your category. Medals and trophies can also be won for handicap adjusted scores where everyone has a chance to win.
Once you have a feel for shooting competitions in the club there are plenty of shoots you can enter to challenge archers from around the county/country/world.
Going to open competitions adds a whole new range of shooting awards you can go for. Details of these can be found in the ArcheryGB Shooting Administrative Procedures 6
