252

The 252 award scheme is probably the most popular scheme we have in operation at the moment. 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.

The scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and have your achievements recognised at each level of success.

After 6 sighters (practice arrows), you shoot a set number of arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. Badges can be earned for 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yards by achieving a score of 252 or better. If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.

The 252 round must be shot as part of a longer imperial round and the scoresheet must be submitted to the records officer.

Have a look at our General information page for a list of the rounds that can be used for 252 scheme.
