Previous Clout Tournaments:

The 2020 County Clout Championships were held on Saturday 5th September at Adur Valley Archers Ground at Dial Post, South of Horsham on the A24 Road.

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.

Apart from one Shoot that was held in February, no Clout shoots are being given Tassel Status in 2020, and there will be no National Championships, all because of the Government Limit of 30 people on the field. So this is effectively a ‘closed to county’ shoot – but scores will of course be eligible for County Records, and County Awards.

ENTRY STATUS AT 1st SEPT: ONE Place at 125 metres; THREE Places at 165 metres; At least THREE Places at each Junior Distance

20 July: Archery GB will not be sanctioning Tassel Status for any tournaments before September so it has been decided not to hold this event as a Open Shoot. And there is an additional problem with the venue, the entire site will have its mains water switched off so that contractors can completely renew the Hot and Cold Water system, and it is uneconomical to provide Portaloo type WCs.
If possible SCAA will provide a County Clout Championships at an alternative venue, but with a maximum of 30 people, including Officials and helpers, on the field. Sussex Clubs and Archers will be informed.

The 2020 Clout Championship is due to be held on Sunday 9th August and will go ahead if permitted by Government Heath Instructions,  Archery GB Guidelines and the Venue Managers’ policy at the time.
When we get a better indication of how things are likely to turn out, we will post news, and, with a bit of luck, the entry forms here. And as usual we’ll email everyone on our mailing list, and send out to the nearby County Secretaries and as far as possible to Club Secretaries, and of course post on the Clout Facebook Group.

The WA Clout is more novice-friendly, it’s much larger than the GNAS Clout which used to be the same size as the WA Clout, but reverted to a smaller traditional size about 50 years ago.

Archery GB Rules require that all archers competing at Clout Tournaments have received Instruction.  There will be an instruction opportunity before the the shoot starts (30 minutes before the advertised Assembly Time), which is not a practice or coaching session, but explains how to shoot longer distances safely.

If you are not an experienced Clout Archer, we recommend you read this Clout Basics Booklet before shooting.
