252 Awards

Crowthorne Archers, as a club, is keen to encourage all members to develop their archery, and therefore operate a 252 Award Scheme. The 252 Award Scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and to then have your achievements recognised.

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 aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types, but the award is still called the "252 Award"). If you achieve the score twice (as recognised by the Records Officer) you will then be awarded a badge for that distance. It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores differ by bowtype).

The Rules

  • Six sighters to be followed immediately by three dozen scored arrows
  • 5-zone scoring (Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1) using a 122cm target face
  • The three dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a longer Imperial round
  • Badges must be claimed in sequence
  • Qualifying scores for a given distance must be shot on different days
  • To receive an award, 2 signed and witnessed score sheets needs to be submitted to the club’s Records Officer.
  • The badge is called the "252 Award" but it will be the same badge for the required distance, no matter what bow or style you use (e.g., if you shoot the required Barebow or Longbow equivalents you will be awarded the "252 Award" for that distance - e.g., there are no 189 or 164 badges...)
Distance (yds) Award Recurve Compound Longbow Barebow
20 White 252 280 164 189
30 Black 252 280 164 189
40 Blue 252 280 164 189
50 Red 252 280 164 189
60 Bronze 252 280 164 189
80 Silver 252 280 126 164
100 Gold 252 280 101 139

To give you an idea of what each of the scores above really mean, below are the averages per arrow and per end (6 arrows) that you'll need to achieve (please note that these are approximate figures, rounded up to 0.1):

Score Per Arrow Per End
280 7.8 46.7
252 7 42
189 5.3 31.5
164 4.6 27.4
139 3.9 23.2
126 3.5 21
101 2.8 16.9
     

Achievement badges are normally awarded on regular club shooting days.
