The 2017 ontarget Club Competition is now open for entries.
The ontarget inter club archery competition is made up of a series of knockout rounds and a finals event. Clubs are initially drawn with others from their counties or regions to minimise travel.
Each team consists of four archers of whom two must be recurve archers and two compound. The team of archers must be mixed gender, and a minimum of 14 years old. Matches take 2 hours and will consist of 3 rounds of 2 dozen arrows at 50m on an 80cm face, with archers shooting ends of 6 arrows. Each round sees the team shoot as a team, a pair and finally as an individual against the other team.
An important element of the competition is the social aspect. Home teams are encouraged to provide refreshments, providing a rare chance to socialise with fellow archers from other clubs. The event is always a fun experience with a great camaraderie reported.
£500 for the winners!
The winning club will receive £500 prize money plus a trophy, with a trophy and prize money also going to the runners up.
Clubs are now invited to enter and take part, in contrast to previous years when clubs were automatically entered and had to forfeit or withdraw if unable to participate.
