Each year , Pre Covid-19, we run two open tournament. Our Open Nationals has run for 14 years and incorporates the County of Worcestershire Novice championship and is National record status. For the last 4 years we have also run the Klondike Longbow tournament which we host at Manor Park.
While attracting many of the top local Archers and providing some good competition for the overall prizes the National family of rounds make it an ideal place for people new to the sport seeking to take their first step into competitions. We are delighted that this event incorporates the County of Worcestershire Novices championship and it’s nice to see previous entrants progress their Archery careers with many now shooting at County level.
The tournament has over recent years attracted up to 95 competitors. For 2017 and 2018 this was held at RGS The Grange just outside of Worcester, but for 2019 we hosted the tournament at Manor Park with Long National round being shot in the morning and the National and Junior rounds were shot in the afternoon.
Well we had some concerns about in the couple of weeks running up to the event and we scaled the event back to just run in the afternoon , but the the field was full, the cakes were wonderful and everyone had a wonderful time.
As we have a number of members who enjoy traditional archery, in early 2016 we decided to add our own Open longbow tournament to the calendar. This event has proved very popular with local clubs and we have been joined by most of the best Longbow Archers in the area. The emphasis is very much on fun and we fire up the BBQ!
