We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our 17th World Archery Tournament with World Record Status. This year it will be the WA 18m round rather than the WA Combined.

This tournament will be on Sunday 25th February 2018 at Casterton College, Great Casterton, near Stamford.

The entry form is here.

Good Luck to the Bowmen of Rutland Team at tonight's Active Rutland Community Sports Awards.
Our Ontarget team has been nominated for Active Rutland Community Sports Team of the Year Award.
Good luck Rutland.

 The Bowmen of Rutland team won the 2017 Ontarget Competition, the finals of which were held at the National Sports Centre Lilleshall in September.

Congratulations to Peter, Oliver, Keith and Chrissie, a fantastic achievement for the club.

Archery GB have a report here and the Rutland Times have also reported it here.

On Saturday 22nd July we held our annual marathon shoot known as the Bunbury. The Bunbury is a Postal shoot with the Bunbury Archery Club in Australia. It is a double WA900 all shot in one day.  That is 180 arrows!  

The first WA900 is also our annual match against Melton Mowbray Archery Club.  This year Melton were victorious, in the compounds it was  close with them scoring 2455 and Rutland just ahead with 2462.  But Melton's recurve team was much stronger scoring 2032 compared to Rutland's 1630. Giving Melton a total score of 4487 and Rutland a score of 4092. Congratulations to Melton Mowbray Archery Club. 

Salvers are presented to the highest scoring Lady and Gent from Rutland shooting the double. The winners of the Bunbury Challenge Salvers were Peter Fox with 879 and Chrissie Mortlock with 756. 

Well done to everyone who shot and thank you to the members who did the catering.

We will wait to see if we are successful in the Bunbury and hope to receive some leprechauns if we are.
