252 Scheme

The 252 award scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and have your achievements recognised. Although it was intended to help beginners progress, all archers of all abilities use the 252 scheme to provide a baseline of their shooting abilities and then challenge themselves at the next distance in a measurable way.

You can shoot the 252 round at 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yards with the aim of scoring 252 or better. If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge. It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type.

Please speak to Andy Cook for more details, times etc
