Archery GB National Tour

The Archery GB National Tour starts from April 28 with the first stage at Bucks or Bounty. The gold matches will be shot on a live finals field on Saturday for everyone to come along and watch.

This year's National Tour will be the biggest and best yet as hundreds of archers join the six stages of competition across the UK. The live finals in September held at Nottingham's scenic Wollaton Hall will be open to spectators to enjoy a day of world-class shooting from our compound, recurve and barebow finalists. 

National Tour 2023 entry and competition dates

Barebows will now be included in the National Tour Finals. Entry places will depend on the numbers of entries at events.

National Tour rankings will be taken from Tier 1 shoots in 2022 only. We encourage all Tournament Officers to return results to us (Ianseo preferred) with the correct AGB numbers.

Tier 1 events for National Tour

The top 30 ranked archers from the end of the 2022 season will get early pre-entry invites.

Entries for all events will open on Thursdays at 7pm through the members portal. Mark your calendars!

Entry through qualification



The finals

Individuals' highest top four National Tour stage results are added together, and then the archers are then ranked in their categories. 

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 4 Barebow from Barebow Men (BM) and Barebow Women (BW) divisions will be invited to the National Tour Final on the 2 and 3 of September at Wollaton Hall (Compound and Barebow Saturday and Recurve Sunday). 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.

The eight athletes in the finals were placed into the match-play charts for the quarter-finals following their final National Tour ranking position. 

  • 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.
