Tournament Scoring Guide

Imperial scoring (Archery GB five zone scoring)

  • The target is a 122cm face and is divided into 5 coloured scoring zone.
  • Points for each zone (9, 7, 5, 3, 1) increase from the center outwards.
  • If an arrow is touching a line that separates zones (line cutter), the higher scoring zone is recorded.
  • Scores are recorded on a score sheet (as shown in the example) with the highest scoring arrow recorded first.
  • An arrow that does not score is called a miss and is marked ‘M’.
  • Arrows are shot in ends of six and arrows can only be touched or removed from the target after all archers accept the recorded values.
  • Once scores are written down, the arrow values can only be changed by a judge before the arrows have been removed from the target.




Metric scoring (World Archery ten zone scoring)
 

  • The targets are 122cm and 80cm faces and are both divided into 10 scoring zones, 2 zones in each of the 5 coloured zone.
  • Points for each zone increase from the center outwards, from 10 to 1.
  • The inner zone scores 10 but has a further inner ring which is recorded as an 'X'.
