Return to Competition

Archery GB has updated the guidance documents for 2021 to help tournament organisers plan and understand how the current government guidelines will apply to them and a webinar has taken place to allow them to ask questions around the document.

Some events will be able to implement mitigations to ensure the safety and welfare of all involved. For other events, these changes may not be possible and they may still not be able to take place.

We are aware that the guidance will take time for organisers to review and assess if and how their events are able to operate.

The tournament organisers guidance is also available for all members to look at and we strongly recommend you read all information before deciding to enter a competition.

For competitions to continue under the guidance this will require archers/judges and organiser to adapt and follow the rules which have been set out. Please bear in mind all members have been in different situations during the past few months and therefore you must respect everyone around you. To some, the restrictions might feel overcautious but we are here for all our members and want everyone to feel safe and secure.

For more information, check out these videos we have created for some guidance at COVID safe competitions.
