CTRA Writtle Field

On Sunday 16th July 2017 we will be hosting a World Record Status WA 720 plus Head to Head tournament. This will be at our Writtle College shooting ground, Fox Burrows Lane, Writtle, Chelmsford CM1 3SS.

The entry form is available from the Essex County Archery Association (ECAA) website using this link - Entry Form.

Gates open at 8.00am with registration from 8.15 am. Membership cards will be required for registration. Assembly at 9.00am followed by up to 45 minutes of practice. Bow inspection will be carried out prior to the start of practice.

Event Format:

  • WA 70m round for recurve, barebow and longbow; shot on a 122cm full face
  • WA 50m round for all compounds; each archer shooting their own 80cm 6-ring face.
  • Ranking rounds will be shot in double detail with six arrows shot in four minutes.
  • Head-to-Head matches will follow after a short break for lunch.

Barebow and Longbow will be classed as recurve for the H2H. Juniors are welcome and will be eligible for awards, but there will be no separate categories. Parental signature and Date of Birth information is still required.

Special Note:
Please ensure that the organiser is aware of any special requirements. Archers who are unable to get to the target are requested, if possible, to arrange for an assistant to aid in scoring and arrow collection. If this is not possible, please contact the organiser for advice.

Shooting Rules:
The tournament will be shot to World Archery rules in force at the time of the event.

Dress regulations:
Archery GB Rules of Shooting dress regulations (rule 307) will apply.

Drug Testing:
Record status shoots are liable for Drug Testing. Any competitor approached to give samples for testing MUST comply. If they refuse, that refusal will be treated as a positive result. Where an entry form contains one or more junior entries, the parent or legal guardian must countersign the form to signify that they consent to their child being tested if approached. Failure to countersign the form in this way will make the entry unacceptable in respect of that junior unless a parent or LEGAL guardian is attending the shoot.

Lost Arrows:
This is a multi-use sports field and all arrows must be found. Lost arrows must be reported to a judge or member of the field party (please remember to inform them if you later find the arrow). It is the archer’s responsibility to account for all arrows before leaving the field.

In line with Archery GB policy, anyone wishing to take video or photographs during the event must register their details with tournament organiser. If parents/carers have any concerns about their child/young person being photographed or filmed they should notify the organisers.

Trophies and medals will be awarded based on the number of archers competing in each category.
