The best three points placings, using the National Rankings formula for points, were used to rank an archer in the Tour Standings.

AGB members missing the 4th score, owing to international conflict, can agree to use one set of Tier 2 ranking points from a nominated event. Athletes wishing to apply, will need to email prior to the event occurring.

Archer at the National Tour

The top 8 ranked National Tour archers within the Recurve Men (RM), Recurve Women (RW), Compound Men (CM) and Compound Women (CW), and the top 2 Barebow from Barebow Men (BM) and Barebow Women (BW) divisions were invited to the National Tour Final on the 16 and 17 of September at Wollaton Hall (Recurve Friday and Compound and Barebow Saturday). Any declined places will be offered to the person next in the ranking list. 

Should more than one athlete be in 8th place, the highest score for a ranking round will break the tie (should this be tied, the next score will be used). This information will be shown in the Final Rankings for the national tour, used to perform the invite. 

From receipt of invitation, an athlete will have 7 days to accept their place at the finals.

  • For the matches, all World Archery rules with regards to format and allowed equipment will be followed
  • Notwithstanding the above, no camouflage, blue denim or ‘worn-looking’ clothing is to be worn by Athletes or Coaches on the field of play. Sponsor shirts, in accordance with the World Archery rules, are permitted
  • Athletes will be permitted one nominated coach, who shall be accredited
  • Athletes must carry a minimum of six (6) arrows into the finals range, to allow for runners to return arrows in alternate ends
  • No scope will be permitted on the shooting line, as there will be spotting screens and a TV unless the Competitions Manager permits it in unforeseen circumstances

Further instructions on the finals procedures and any further rules for the finals will be communicated to the selected athletes nearer the time.
