All About AGB / WA Rounds and Scoring

Outdoor Metric Rounds, Outdoor Imperial Rounds and Indoor Rounds gives details on target face sizes and number of arrows to shoot for WA and AGB rounds. From April 2022 Archery GB have changed the naming of Imperial Rounds, please ensure you use the correct round name for distance you are shooting.

Rounds For Your Age gives details of which rounds to shoot for age and gender. 

How to Score indoor and outdoor WA/AGB rounds, clicking on this link should help you pick the correct round for your age.

The age group you shoot in is worked out from your birth “year”, not your birth “date”, and this will change every January 1st.

For example: on December the 31st you are 15 years of age and have been shooting in the U16 category, from January 1st, irrespective of when you birthday is, you will be shooting in the U18 category. The same goes for a 49 year old archer, the year in which they have their 50th birthday they can shoot in the 50+ category. If you need further help with this please contact the records officer.

All About Awards, Handicaps & Classifications

See YOUR current Handicaps & Classifications here for INDOOR and OUTDOOR rounds. These are kept up to date by the Records Officer using scores you have submitted.

We have put together some Q&A in Handicaps explained. For more detailed information about what scores are required for classifications visit the Archery GB website on OUTDOOR Classifications & Handicaps or INDOOR Classifications

There are also a couple of online calculator that you can use for one off scores –, this may differ from the official handicap given to you by the Records Officer as your official Classification and Handicap is based on three scorers, not just one.

If you have any more questions about the awards please contact the Records Officer at
