Postal League Tournaments
Castle Bowmen’s excellent Archers also compete, as a team, in many League tournaments as well as individual competitions. For many years we have participated in the Nationally run Summer & Winter Postal league’s, with some very good results.
In 2012 AND 2013 Castle Bowmen came TOP of Division 1 in the Summer Postal League making us 'technically' the best club in the UK.
In the Summer we shoot a Short Metric round (3doz @ 50m & 3doz @ 30m)
Our Longbow teams shoot a National round (4doz@ 60yd & 2doz @ 50 yd)
In the Winter we shoot a Frostbite round (3dozen arrows just at 30m)
and an Indoor Postal Portsmouth round (5dozen arrows @ 20yds)
These are great opportunities for club members to have experience of tournament conditions without any pressure, as they are all shot at our own field
No matter what your level of archery, they are fun to shoot and will give you an easy introduction to tournaments, and as an added incentive the winning teams in each division receive a Postal League Winners badge to proudly display on your quiver.
