RULES OF THE COMPETITION 
Overview

The 252 award is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements. After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types see table below). Once you have achieved the score twice you can claim a badge.

 

It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores differ by bowtype).

 

The Rules:

  • Six sighters to be followed immediately by three dozen scored arrows.
  • 5-zone scoring (Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1) using a 122cm target face.
  • The three dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a longer Imperial round ~ e.g. as part of a Western, National etc.
  • Badges must be claimed in sequence ~ you don’t need to start at 20yds but if you start at a longer distance you cannot then claim badges for the shorter distances.
  • Scores need to be achieved twice to qualify for the award.
  • Qualifying scores for a given distance must be shot on different days
To make an award claim 2 signed and witnessed score sheets needs to be submitted to the club secretary and/or records officer. These may be from a longer round so long as the distances involved are clearly recorded. If you are only shooting the 3 dozen for the 252 and it is not part of a longer round, only submit qualifying scores.

The awards are as follows: Please note these are subject to review and may change ~ badge colours in particular
