252 Improvement Award Scheme

252 Improvement Award Scheme

The 252 award is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements. After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better.

It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores do though differ by bowtype).

The Rules:

  • Six sighters to be followed immediately by three dozen scored arrows. Sighters are only allowed for the first distance shot on the day.
  • 5-zone scoring (Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1) using a 122cm target face.
  • The three dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a distance in a round.
  • Distance claims may be made in any order.
  • To make an award claim* a signed and witnessed score sheet needs to be submitted to the club’s Records Officer.
  • * The first badge will be free, after that there will be a nominal charge of £1.00 per badge
