Age groups rule change outcome

February 9th 2022

Last year, Archery GB reviewed the current age bracket for junior and senior archers. This was in response to confusion about the differences set by Archery GB and World Archery.

We sent out a members’ survey last November to determine the need for change to the age groups rules, and are pleased to announce our decision to proceed. Changes will be implemented on 1 October 2022.

Please see details of our ‘Age Groups Rule Change Decision’ also available in the downloadable Documents section below.

What end of Covid-19 rules in England mean for archery

As the government has ended all remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England, we have updated our guidance for archery across the UK. While there will no longer be a legal requirement to wear a face covering, we support any individuals who still wish to wear them. Although there is no rule to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid, we would ask you to consider doing this to protect other club members and their families who may be vulnerable.
