Sussex Team In Action Outdoors at Regional inter-County Match after 2 years inaction

July 26th, 2021

As an antidote to 16 months of restrictions, Stuart Barber and his team from Hertfordshire organised a Friendly 10-County Match on 24th July, and Sussex sent a mix of experienced Team Members and new emerging talents to get back in the groove without the stress of a full-on competition. With support from a new management duo of Steven Gilbert and Tom Grey, let’s hope this is the start of a new phase for the SCAA Team, with a new emphasis on developing and encouraging a larger pool of SCAA archers to be ready to take part.
After a night of thunderstorms and lightning the shoot got underway in a downpour giving all the archers wet weather gear exposure to the elements. Hours in and precipitation stopped and humidity started to rise as did the shooting. Read the rest of this entry »

County mini-Championships 18th July – Results List

July 11th, 2021

The Results for the Senior Outdoor Championships are now posted on the Sussex-County-Target-Championships Webpage 

The Shoot was blessed with the best of July weather, with just a hint of breeze. It was the last day before the Covid-19 Restrictions were relaxed,  so numbers were still set at two archers per target. The shoot was completely full, Longbows and Barebows in the morning session and Recurves in the afternoon, and there was room for one target of Compounds, Gents in the morning and Ladies in the afternoon. Very few of the entrants had shot competitively since the end of last summer, so this was a near perfect way to dust off the skills and make a not-too-stressful re-boot.

County Junior Target Championships

September 26th, 2020

Social Distancing was no problem at the County Junior Championships held at Adur Valley’s grounds on 19th September, but the threat of Covid-19 did have an effect on the number of participants, which was mostly a result of difficulties getting the right kind of practice this Summer in the run-up to the Championships.
As with the Clout Championships, it was lovely and sunny, but with an added challenging wind all day. This is the second time the Junior Championships has taken this type of format, a 6-dozen-shot Round at a smaller venue, and it proved once again that separating the shoot from the senior championships is much more inclusive.

Many thanks to Adur Valley Archers for hosting the shoot and setting up the field, and thanks also to our Judge, David Strong and to the Lady Paramount Gemma Underwood.

Sussex County Clout Championships

September 8th, 2020

Adur Valley Archers successfully hosted the Clout Championships, under the control of judge Warwick Drew. Numbers were limited in accordance with Covid-19 Control Guidelines, and Social Separation and special scoring and arrow gathering routines were followed, but there was little impact on the progress of the tournament.

The shoot was the first Clout Tournament in the UK to be carried out in accordance with Archery GB ‘Return to Competition’ Guidelines and Government Covid-19 control Guidelines. Numbers were restricted so that there were fewer than 30 people at the venue, however we were able accommodate all the Sussex Archers who wanted to attend, plus half a dozen guests. And after a stretch of poor weather, the shoot took place under almost perfect conditions.
