Archery is one of the oldest arts still practised. It is the art, sport, practice or skill of using a bow to shoot arrows. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. Every year we host the London Youth Games Open Archery competition at Crystal Palace during our Summer Finals in July.
To get within the ‘gold ring’, Olympic archers must hit a target the size of a beer mat from a distance of seven bus lengths.
GET in touch to compete
To get involved in open competitions, you will need to contact the Borough Team Organiser (BTO) in your borough or via the LYG App where you can register your interest.
Only a BTO or nominated Team Manager can enter a team into a competition. A borough can enter any number of Borough/ Open/ Schools competitions with a maximum of 1 team per competition.
A competitor is eligible to represent a borough if they are a resident or attend a school or college of further education in that borough. You cannot represent more than one borough in the same competition but competitors are allowed to compete for different boroughs in different competitions.
