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.
At Archery GB AGM Bronze Plaquettes were awarded to Carla Piper and Lee Miller for their work carried out on various National Committees. This is a most prestigious award and well deserved by both receipients for a huge amount of work they both do in archery, both in front and behind the scenes.
Well done to Maia Daborn, Jodie Buckner and Alex Allum who were invited by AGB to spend a day at Lilleshall with Patrick Huston and Lloyd Brown. Maia was invited in recognition of being the youngest Level 2 Coach and Jodie and Alex as top junior scorers. All had a throughly enjoyable time and Maia had a 'hands-on' opportunity to partake in coaching.
