County Shoots & Team Events Cancelled

We are disappointed to announce that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to cancel both the Wiltshire WA in July, and the 3-day County Championship weekend in August also additionally cancel all junior and senior County Archery Team events for the remainder of the calendar year.

• The Wiltshire WA is part of the wider 2-day Supermarine Weekend which has also been cancelled as announced by themselves earlier today. All entrants will be contacted by the Tournament Organiser regarding their fees.

• Entry for the 3-day County Championship weekend had not yet opened pending a decision since Lockdown started.

• The junior and senior County Archery Team events cancelled include the DWAA vs HAA match at the Andover FITA Star in July, the National County Team Tournament at Lilleshall in June and both the junior and senior GWAS Regional Inter-county Tournaments in September even if the events themselves may eventually go ahead. All team members should have been contacted by their respective Team Managers.

• The ArcheryGB Big Weekend in May and GWAS Dunster Championships in June are already announced as being cancelled.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. This decision is due to the continued impact of the coronavirus outbreak along with ensuring the safety of archers, judges, organisers and other people involved in these events and to allow archers to focus on their own clubs and memberships during the ongoing difficulties.

We thank Supermarine Bowmen and South Wilts AC for agreeing to originally host the two  cancelled shooting events.
