Notes:-

  • For the county championships veterans are those aged 55 or over on the day of the tournament.
  • All carbon arrows, so long as they conform to the rules of shooting, are permitted at all record status tournaments. They are obviously more difficult to find than aluminium arrows and it is the archers responsibilty to ensure that any missing arrows are found before leaving the venue.

Indoor County Match on 29 November 2014

An indoor county match against Essex, Middlesex & Surrey has now been confirmed for Saturday, 29 November 2014 at Sittingbourne Community College.

This is quite early in the indoor season, so it is more important than ever for anyone who wishes to be considered for team selection to ensure that their scores are submitted very promptly - the cut-off date for receiving scores in time for the selection meeting is Friday, 31 October 2014.

The team selection policy explains the requirements (page 4 is especially relevant); however, given the timescales involved it is strongly recommended that archers submit their own score returns, to make absolutely sure.

Please note that, as stated in the policy above, score returns must be sent to the county Records Officer, not to the County Captain, as it is the county Records Officer who chairs the Team Selection Panel. If you intend sending your score return by post, please either check with your club Records Officer for the correct address, or contact the County Records Officer by email first - this website does not contain or disclose private mailing addresses.

Kent Archery Association AGM

When the date of this year's AGM was discussed at last year's event, there was concern that the normal date (the 3rd. Sunday of November) might clash with a tournament; it has turned out that this will not in fact happen and so the KAA AGM will be held on its customary date, Sunday, 16 November 2014 at Medway Archers' clubhouse.

Please therefore ignore the date shown in recent newsletters and accept our apologies for any confusion that might have been caused.

Official notification should now have been received by all Club Secretaries and Direct Members; if any Club Secretary or Direct Member has not receive their copy, please urgently contact the County Secretary.

If you have received a prefilled nomination form, but wish to nominate an alternative member for any post, please download and print the form below, then return to the County Secretary, as described in the notification letter.

You want to take up Archery?

If you haven't done archery before, or have only tried it in a "taster session" at school or on holiday, and now you want to do it for real, then follow these four easy steps:

  1. Take a look at the "New Members" section on our FAQ page;
  2. Read through our short Introduction to Finding a Club;
  3. Look for a convenient club using our AGB Club Finder Club Finder ;
  4. Use the contact details provided to contact the club direct for details of beginners' courses.

Remember don't buy any archery equipment until you have finished the beginners' course - use of basic equipment is included in the price of the beginners' course. Once you know that archery is for you, your new club will give advice and help you select the bow, arrows and other bits and pieces that will suit you and your budget.

If you are disabled or visually impaired, it is still likely that you will be able to shoot; however, please bear in mind that not all clubs will feel qualified to work with all types of disability, so please call them and discuss your particular needs and they will do everything they can to help.
