Start to Compete

This section is intended to help those who want to start competing at tournaments.

Here you’ll find an outline and guidance to help you get started, there’s also a Guide to Scoring and Tournaments available.

Once you start hitting the target more often than you miss, you will probably want to test your skills in a more competitive environment. Whether it’s a local club shoot, or a more formal competition, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor tournaments held throughout the year to suit all abilities and ages.

Every archer remembers their first tournament. As well as helping you improve and compete, they are a great way to socialise, meet other archers and have fun.
