November 5th 2021
Vicky Sartain

We are pleased to announce dates for next year's competitions, managed by Archery GB.

After almost two years of unprecedented change and uncertainty around sports events, Archery GB is delighted to announce a full calendar of competitions for 2022. Please note: a few dates are still yet to be confirmed, where shown below, so do keep an eye on our website and other comms channels for further updates.

National competition updates

  • The UK Masters will stay in the same format as 2021 and return to its traditional weekend of 4/5 June. Invitations will be extended to the top 30 2021 Archery GB ranked archers, as well as all MBs and GMBs.
  • The date of the British Target Championships is moving to the weekend of 25/26 June for 2022 only. This is due to Archery GB hosting the European Youth Championships at Lilleshall in August.
  • The National County Team Championships will be held on the weekend of 24/25 September 2022. This later date will give counties more time to select their athletes. If any counties wish to incorporate any other intercounty matches within this weekend, please let us know in good time and we can organise your results.
  • Barebows will now be included in the National Tour Finals. Numbers will depend on numbers of entries at events.
    • GB Rankings will start from the first WRS event of the year and will run through to mid-October.
    • Rankings will be updated twice per month on the AGB website from mid-May and use the rolling ranking system.
    • Best 5 results from a 12-month period will be used.
    • National Tour rankings will be taken from Tier 1 shoots in 2022 only.
