252 Awards Scheme

The Basics

The 252 Award scheme is designed to encourage archers to improve their accuracy and increase the ranges being shot at, with badges for qualifying scores at distances from 20 yards up to 100 yards.

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 objective of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.
