It is time to assemble our team as the ultimate club versus club challenge returns for 2016.

Will Cleadon give the other clubs a run for there money or will Oxford Archers win a hat-trick of back to back titles?

The ontarget club competition starts in April, and Cleadon has been drawn at home to North East Archers (awaiting there response to our invitation)

Now a few words from Archery GB and some links to tournament information.

Get involved and make 2016 the biggest and best year yet. The competition comprises of a series of knockout rounds and a Finals event, allowing clubs and archers to meet new people you may not have come across. It also opens up the opportunity for team bonding, fun and the chance to experience shooting in other parts of the country. The winning club will receive a trophy and £500 prize money. The runner up will also receive a plate and £250 prize money.All ontarget clubs are automatically entered into the ontarget Club Competition. If you can not take part you forfeit and your opposition advances to the next round. But you don’t want them to do that, do you?
