2023 Competitions Updates and Dates

We are delighted to announce the first set of competition dates for 2023.

Jon Nott, Archery GB’s Events & Competitions Manager, said: “Next year looks to be an amazing year for competitions with the European Grand Prix in April followed by the start of the National Tour and then a host of events for all ages and abilities.

“After a successful test event in 2022, barebow will become part of the National Tour for the first time and a new junior archery series gives our young athletes the chance to compete against each other around the UK.” 

While the majority of the dates are fixed, some are still to be determined, so keep checking back for updates. All formats and dates are subject to change.

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

 

Updates for 2023

The UK Masters will be held on 24-25 June. It will now be an open entry event. Early entry will be offered to all Master Bowmen and Grand Master Bowmen, plus the UK top 30 ranked archers, followed by open entry to all. Saturday will be a Tier 1 National Tour stage.

The date of the British Target Championships will move back to its traditional date of 12-13 August and will also include a Tier 1 National Tour Stage.

The National County Team Championships will be held on the weekend of 23-24 September to give counties more time to select their athletes. If any counties wish to incorporate any other intercounty matches within this weekend, please let us know in good time and we can organise your results. No other World Record Status events will be allowed on this weekend in the UK. All counties are encouraged to take part in this National event. It will also carry Tier 2+ ranking points in 2023.

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

 

Rankings 

GB rankings will start from the first WRS event of the year and will run through to mid-October. Rankings will be updated twice per month – on the first and third Thursday of the month – and, using the rolling ranking system, will be listed on the AGB website from mid-May. The best five results from a 12-month period will be used.

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.
