252 Improvement Award

The 252 award is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and to recognise your achievements. The award scheme applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type. The 252 refers to the minimum score required when shooting with a recurve bow, although you can shoot with other bow types which carries alternative minimum scores at different distances. To determine the minimum score you require, please check the table. There are separate awards for distances of 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yards.

  • The 3 dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first 3 dozen of a longer imperial round.
  • Scores for each distance need to be achieved twice to qualify.
