On Sunday 1 September the grounds at Wollaton Hall will be transformed into a head-to-head competition, the event will be run in the same format as the Olympics/Paralympics, which proved extremely popular with spectators in London and watching at home.

 

There will also be the opportunity for visitors to ‘have a go’ at archery along with many other family activities throughout the day.

We hope, and expect, a close race for the finals, it is more than an archery event it is a festival of archery and there will be something for everyone.”

 

The Finals will be a series of head-to-head matches on the back lawn of Wollaton Hall, with a 70m target for the recurve archers and a 50m target for the compound archers.
