The Archery GB Postal competitions allow you to take part in archery competitions in your own time, outside of the traditional competition format. Here’s how to take part.
You can enter your scores through our online platform but please be aware it could take up to 48 hours to receive QR code and scoresheet.
If you are entering scores for more than six people, you can download our spreadsheet and send it to email@example.com. Please note that the spreadsheet can only be accepted if all required fields are filled in.
You will need to enter your scores through the Ianseo app, available for Apple or Android devices, along with submitting your entry on the specific challenge link.
We’ll take your scores in good faith, so you don’t need to submit your scorecards, unless a score is questioned, in which case Archery GB will ask for scoresheets. All winners will also be expected to show their scoresheet prior to the final result publication.
You can shoot barebow, compound, longbow, or recurve in the Postal Competitions.
All Archery GB members are eligible to enter the postal competition series.
Portsmouth (archers may use either a full or 3 spot face)
Normal Portsmouth scoring applies for this challenge.
Archers will be split by bow type and gender within each of the categories below:
All scores submitted must be shot during January and entered into the system no later than the 5 February.
You can register using the link below. Please note that scoresheets will be sent out after 9 January. You can still record your scores and then post-date them when you have received the scoresheet.
All categories will be split by gender, age (where appropriate) and bow type.
*Please note archers must shoot their age group or above, archers cannot shoot a round below their age group. The age of the archer on the day the score is shot will define the age group.
Scores submitted can be taken from the shorter distances shot where appropriate in a 1440 or metric round. Please be aware that if you use the spreadsheet, this data will not be uploaded onto Ianseo until the end of the competition.
More than one entry will be allowed, and the archer's highest score will be used for the final results. You will be asked to indicate if you have entered the postal competitions before so that we can remove your previous result.
Please be aware that you are allowed to shoot over 2 days due to time restrictions. You will also need to print the scoresheet off twice to submit.
You may only submit scores shot in July and August. You will need to allow up to 48 hours for the entry to be processed and a QR code to be sent.
The Ianseo mobile app is free and simple to use. This gives the added benefit to you that the results are instantly sent to Archery GB without having to do any further emailing or entry of scores. Search the Google Play Store, or the Apple App Store for ‘Ianseo Scorekeeper’
After you have registered for entry into the postal league of choice, you’ll be sent your scorecard and unique QR code.
