Club Awards & Badges

Within our club we like to encourage our members to push their skills and gain awards for doing so. Along with our club trophies, our members can win badges for various skills and tasks, some quite easy to win, others harder. What follows below are some of the badges that can be won, and a record of the latest few winners of those badges.

Portsmouth Round
The most popular scoring round in the UK is the Portsmouth Round, and our club is no exception to this. The Portsmouth round is a real challenge to our members, and we issue badges depending on the archers highest score with a total of 21 badges to be won.

252 Badge Award Scheme

The “252″ Awards is a badge scheme to encourage accuracy and good grouping at all distances, by all ages. Using a full size target face the aim is to score 252 or above with a limited amount of arrows, and at a set distance (members of Wyke Archers Juniors are give some bonus arrows to assist them in reaching the score). Those who successfully complete a distance and score the minimum required receive a certificate of confirmation and can also purchase a coloured pin badge to attach to their quiver. By request we now have a new full set of both Multi Bow 252 badges and Quad 252 badges. Multi Bow’s are obtained by members who gain a 252 award using two different bow types, and the Quad is awarded upon gaining the 252 using four different bow types.

SAS Badge

Any archer who manages to take out the dead centre of the target face is awarded an SAS Badge. Not as easy as it sounds and our Records Officer is a stickler for making sure the arrow is truly dead centre and cleanly takes out the “X” for the badge to be won! Quite an achievement, and occasionally won accidentally by our new archers!

Portsmouth Round

The governing body for archery in the UK is Archery GB, formally known as GNAS (Grand National Archery Society) and it is they who formulated the different distances, size of targets and number of arrows, known as rounds, that UK clubs shoot at. Most Archery GB rounds are named after British cities with indoor rounds using the metric scoring system and outdoor using imperial, A Portsmouth round is shot at our club in 6 arrow ends with 1 end (6 arrows) of sighter’s and use metric scoring where the inner gold ring is worth 10 points and working out from the center each subsequent ring being worth 1 point less than the previous with the outer white ring being worth 1 point. Inside the 10 ring is a smaller one called the X ring. This ring is also worth 10 points but the number of X’s can be used to determine ties.
