The Welsh Archery Association has moved and can now be found at welsharcheryassociation.com.
Target competitions are held both in and outdoors. 18 metres is the standard indoor distance with outdoor distances ranging from 25m all the way to a staggering 90m. These competitions are either 3 or 6 arrows at a time and they take turns. Each turn is known as an “end” after which you must retrieve your arrows. There is a time limit which is often 2 minutes for three arrow ends and 4 minutes if it is 6 arrows.
Field archery is popular in various parts of Europe and involves finding and shooting at targets in the woods or rougher terrain (i.e. not a clearly marked space like target archery). There are often 28 targets in a given round of field archery and some are unmarked, meaning athletes must locate AND shoot them.
Before it became a sport, archery was simply a skill needed for hunting and combat, and this aspect of archery continues to be popular today thanks to movies, books, and TV series that feature characters that possess this skill.
