Following the announcement from the Prime Minister last night (Sunday 10 May), Archery GB is finalising plans for the first phase of returning to archery in England. We are working with Sport England and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) in order to provide the best possible guidance to the archery community.

We are expecting further clarification within the next 48 hours and will aim to communicate the next steps as soon as it is practicable to do so. We appreciate your patience during this time.

There is no change to the current position in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and archery activity remains on hold. We will continue to work with Home Nations as the guidance changes in those territories.

The safety of the archery community remains our priority, the effects of coronavirus will be felt across the archery community for a considerable time to come. As we return to archery we need to do so responsibly, and we all need to continue to play our part in controlling the virus and saving lives.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding as we get people back to enjoying archery as safely as possible.
