Hampshire Archery Association is the home of archery in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands in the UK. The Association is affiliated to SCAS (Southern Counties Archery Society) and GNAS (Grand National Archery Society) who are the governing body for the sport in the UK.
Archery is a sport for all ages and abilities and is great for families. There are over 50 archery clubs in Hampshire and most offer beginners courses. If you interested in trying archery get in touch with one of the clubs listed here.
Details and entry forms for the Hampshire Indoor Weekend 2015 have been posted to the events diary: Hampshire Indoor Weekend.
Are you willing to volunteer as editor of a Hampshire Archery Newsletter for the website? This HantsMag will offer articles and information relating to archery which would be of interest to our members. If so, please contact the Secretary, Pauline Hunton
Concern has recently been raised regarding rules about smoking at Tournaments. Hampshire Archery Association has decided to clarify this confusion.
All Hampshire County Tournaments will not allow smoking of any item, including all electronic smoking devices, in front of the line of tents. If anyone is found to flout this requirement, they will be given a warning. After receiving a warning, anyone continuing to smoke either tobacco based or electronic smoking devices in front of the tent line, will be required to leave the Tournament field.
Please ensure that the above is passed to all Club members to avoid future embarrassment.

Pauline read an email at the HAA exec meeting held on thursday, ref someone who has concerns over how the team is selceted, and that the same people are always choosen. I hope that person reads this and accepts that i pick the team to the best of my knowledge, and to get results.
Before i go into detail this year the teams i have selected have won both of our county shoots, against Sussex and DWAA, walked away with a second place medal from the NCTT, and 4 medals from 4 teams entered at the SCAS intercounties.
The teams have been represented by the following clubs:
Sussex match: Southampton, Andover, Raven, Petersfield, RN South Coast, Alton & four marks, Old basing Archers, Whitehill, Waterside, FOBB, Sway, Overton, AC Delco, Havant & HAyling
DWAA match, open shoot, 3 best scores counted to results, FOBB, Southampton, Alton & four marks, Guernsey, RN South Coast
NCTT: Southampton, AC Delco, Fobb, Jersey, RN Southcoast, Alton & Four Marks, Guernsey,
SCAS: Southampton, AC Delco, Raven, White Bowman, Alton & Four Marks, RN South coast, Waterside, Old Basing Archers, Petersfield
There appears to be more than the 2 clubs stated in the email in that list.
In all competitions shot by HAA this year, only 2 persons were selected from outside those who qualified for the team at the trials, They were Lee Grace, who shot SCAS due to loosing a team member in the week leading up to the event, and the 3 persons who had qualified were unable to attend. And Nianh Kehoe, again at SCAS as a junior archer broke their arm and had to be replaced, Niamh was the 6th placed person at the trials and was able to attend with late notice.
At the NCTT we had 2 archers who shot outside of the bowstyle they qualified in, Charlotte Warne, who wished to shoot barebow, but it was not an event NCTT ran due to lack of entry, and shot compound for us, as no other female compound archer offered their services for the event. And Marc Gray shot compound at NCTT, gaining a second place medal with Lee miller and Jake BUrn, again, noone else was willing to travel to the event, and Marc was willing to fill the space.
I hope that this answers your concerns ref the team selection.
I will, however, be wiling to stand down as team manager at the next meeting, and will gladly propose the person who felt they needed my decisions explained to take the job.
