Archery GB AGM online – Saturday 23 April

Don't miss the opportunity to have your say about how your sport is run at Archery GB's online-only AGM.

Archery GB will once again hold its AGM online only, taking place on Saturday 23 April at 10.30am. More details can be found on our dedicated AGM webpage.

As part of the AGM, Archery GB's CEO Neil Armitage will give a presentation based on our 'Year in Focus 2021-22', which showcases the latest organisational developments over the past year, and outlines our new strategic objectives.

This is our fifth yearbook, which aims to give members an insight into our work and strategic plan progress. It looks back over the past year in our sport and shows how we as an organisation are working to rebuild from the impact of the pandemic, while still championing archery for our members.

Enriching lives through archery

Archery GB's CEO, Neil Armitage, commented:  "It has been a challenging year for archery, however it is rewarding to see that the spirit of our great sport prevails. This past year has demonstrated that the archery family in the UK is both determined and supportive. It presented us with significant opportunities for improving the awareness of our sport via the media due to our athletes' appearances at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo. Bringing home medals attracted the interest of a wide variety of broadcasts and news programmes on television, radio and other outlets, which brought attention to the grassroots as clubs were often featured in the coverage.

"Our membership has seen the green shoots of growth coming out of the impact of the pandemic. This has been helped in part by our new Start Archery website appealing to those coming into the sport with no knowledge of archery at all.

"Our new strategy has important focus on inclusion. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to try and take up our sport. By engaging with new communities in more locations we hope to increase the diversity of our sport, reaching people from different places in the UK, and we hope to see equal numbers of men and women, and diversify archery into more urban settings in addition to the more traditional rural ranges.

"We look forward to the next 12 months as we implement some exciting plans which I am keen to share with you on our planned roadshows later this year.”
