All Club Archery Still Suspended

In an update from AGB, all club archery in the UK is still suspended until further notice.

Whilst people may now exercise outside as many times as they wish each day this still clearly excludes venues where there is a higher risk of close contact (such as the shooting line) and touching surfaces (such as targets) as per page 27 of OUR PLAN TO REBUILD: The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy which can be found on;

also as before, you cannot:

* exercise in an indoor sports court, gym or leisure centre (such as shooting indoors)

* gather in a group of more than two (excluding members of your own household)

as per
