Welcome to HAMPSHIRE ARCHERY ASSOCIATION

arrows

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 Archery GB (GNAS) 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.

I have had numerous record claims since taking over and it has become clear that some people aren't too sure about how to claim records. Here are some pointers,

  • Records need to be claimed within 6 months of the shoot taking place
  • More than 1 record can be taken in a single day for example for any WA1440 you could claim 7 records. The round it's self, the long metric, short metric and all four individual distances.
  • On Imperial distances (York, Hereford, Bristol's) you can also claim for the corresponding national round
  • When claiming please include the results sheet, the claim form and a picture of the applicable score sheet. This may be done via email or Postal. The scoresheet is very helpful should any tie break happen.
  • Tie breaks will be decided as follows 

(i) Archery GB Imperial Rounds.
Award Based On       1st Tie Break            2nd Tie Break
              Score              Hits                           Golds

We have had to make a change to the arrangements for this year's Dorset & Wilts v Hampshire Inter-County match. Because the DWAA Double WA 70/50 at Salisbury on 5th August is not record status, the decision has been taken to hold the match as part of the Andover WA 1440 on Sunday 29th July. There will be mixed gender teams of 4, compound and recurve. Selection will be on the basis of the top 4 scoring archers in each discipline. Apologies for the very late notice. Hopefully next year we can manage to arrange this match much earlier!

Congratulations to the group of HAA Junior Archers who took part in a three-way inter-county match at Supermarine on Sunday 22nd July against Oxford and Dorset & Wilts. There was little wind but it was a blisteringly hot day which made shooting very hard work. The match resulted in a win for the team from Oxford with Hampshire in second place just 100 points behind. The four highest scores from each county formed the teams and for Hampshire it was Saskia Meyrick, Abi Creese, Katy Westwood and Charlotte Williams. The others in the HAA squad were Paul Williams and Kerry Stringer.

HAMPSHIRE JUNIOR COUNTY RANKINGS AS AT 1ST JULY 2018


Here is the first set of HAA Junior County Rankings as at 1st July 2018. Based on your best 3 handicap scores. For those who have shot less than 3 rounds, a handicap score of 100 has been added for each missing score. This is the same system as used by Archery GB to calculate National Rankings but they are only published once a year in October. Hopefully, the HAA rankings will be updated monthly.
