Glamorgan Postal League - Rules and Information
2019 Summer League:
Round- 3 dozen @ 30m (80cm face)
(Winter League will start in October 2019)
A postal tournament league for all Glamorgan archery clubs
to compete in. Giving a chance for anyone of any ability, senior
or junior, to compete at a County level event without the pressure
of leaving their own club environment.
The Summer postal league will be 5 matches, once a month April to August 2019.
A full list of matches will be sent to each competing club and listed on the county website
Clubs can register as many teams as they wish with 2 members per team.
Bowtypes, ages, gender can all be mixed within the teams as the results are based purely on combined team scores. The short 30m distance is specifically chosen to allow any ability archer to take part.
To ensure fairness, a divisional system will be employed to group similar ability teams together to compete against each other.
Each division will be awarded it’s own winning team badges.
Predicted scores must be submitted for each team each season and will be used to place teams into the appropriate division. There will undoubtedly be a spread of abilities so the number of entries will determine the number and make up of divisions and will be determined from season to season.
Predicted scores must be as accurate as possible as a threshold of 10% will be applied to submitted scores. (i.e - Any submitted team scores more than 10% above your predicted scores will involve a penalty. The excess above the predicted score + 10% will then be deducted below the threshold).
Team scores can be shot at any point during each month, but results must be submitted to the organiser BEFORE the end of the month to be considered.
If a monthly score for any team has not been submitted to the organiser by the last day of the month then a score of 0 (zero) will be recorded for that month.
Leagues will be shown on the County website, with Division winners badges given as prizes at the end of the season. Winners of each division will be the team with the most match points amassed throughout the season. 3 match points will be awarded for a Win, 2 points for a Draw, 1 point for a Loss and 0 points for not submitting a score for the month.
Score sheets are available from the county website to download, Click links on the left. However these aren’t compulsory and any general score sheet can be used, provided all the details and scores are clearly visible.
When completed all you need to do is photograph or scan the score sheets and send them to the Postal League co-ordinator each month.
The 2019/20 Winter postal league, shooting a Portsmouth round, will be available to enter later next year. The 5 matches will be scheduled for October 2019 to February 2020.
As this is a new event the Summer 2019 postal season will be considered an experiment to gauge response, and as such there will be no charge for clubs to enter teams. At the end of the season a questionnaire form will be available for feedback and suggestions for improvements
