Firstly we hope all of our Archery friends and their families are well through these uncertain times.
Currently we do not know if we will be able to run either of our Open Tournaments in 2020, our Open Nationals / CWAA Novice normally held in July or the Klondike Longbow Tournament traditionally held a month later.
As the Klondike is scheduled for August we are more hopeful that this will be able to go ahead and we have a little bit more flexibility with the date should we need to reschedule it. Jeff currently has 27 keen Archers with their names down, so please let him know if you want to enter. Thank you for your continued support.
We are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will continue to do so over the coming weeks and will notify you of our plans for both of the Tournaments. We will of course only proceed if we can do so safely for all involved and following both Government and Archery GB guidance.
Please watch this page for updates. Stay safe and stay healthy.
On behalf of Malvern Archers.
Each year 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.
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!
