In 2012 the Wicklow field league was a big success with over 110 competitors shooting in 12 competitions. In 2013 we hope to make the league a much bigger event and encourage all clubs to attend.

The League Format

There will be 10 competitions held through the year. The individual competition will be based on an archers top 3 scores from the year, while the club competition will be based on the 3 highest scores from a compound, recurve and barebow archer from your club. They will be taken from any age or peg.

The Competition Format

Each competition will consist of 16 mixed targets. 8 targets will be marked and 8 unmarked. The days competition should take about 4 hours.

We will have 5 pegs out at each competition. Red, Blue and Yellow will be official distances. The other pegs will be as follows:

Peg Distance
White 5m – 30m
Green 5m – 20m
Pink 5m – 12m

When you score over 150 points you must move to the next peg until you reach your official peg.

Archers who shot last year will need to start on the same peg and can not move backwards at any stage. If an archer chooses to shoot a lower peg the score will not count towards the league.

The bow classes will be as follows: Compound, Recurve, Barebow, Instinctive and Longbow.

How to get involved

There will be shoots held regularly during the year, practice butts from 9.30, competition starts at 10. Check the calendar for the next competition.
