Archery GB Youth Festival

The is the ideal event for any youth archers who are on, or aiming for, NTDP and Pathway squads, as well as those working towards one day making the GB team.

Archery GB have played host the annual four-day Youth Festival tournament held at the Lilleshall National Sporting Centre since 2014. The goal of the event is to simulate the running of international junior events, much like at European Cups and European Championships. For the archers in attendance, they will have the opportunity to experience what attending one of these international events would be like.
