Two new level 1 coaches

Congratulations to two of our juniors who have just passed their Level 1 Coaching qualification. Well done to Max Harris and Andrew Hughes!

Plans for our WA18 Cancelled

Sadly we have had to cancel our annual WA18 competition that we normally hold in September. This is due to key members of the Netherhall Archers tournament team having a number of personal/work commitments during November. This is only a temporary issue, and we expect to be able to hold our summer WA1440 competition as usual in 2018, as well as the WA18 next November. Our apologies to all the archers who normally use this event as a regular part of their shooting schedule.

BA Postal League Winners

Netherhall Archers (Juniors A team) win their league for second year running, well done guys. They were from the start dominating in their league putting in some very impressive scores. Isabel Lee shot the highest JG score in all the league matches and Max Harris shot highest score in one of the league matches. The second team Netherhall had in the postal unfortunately had one archer who was unable to shoot this meant is would have been a near miracle for them to win the league. However they shot well under the circumstances and came 5th this would have been a different mater however with a full team, one of the B team archers shot top scores on two occasions, so well done to those involved in both the A and B team. Below are months and scores Netherhall juniors topped the league excluding the B team.

Anyone interested in entering this competition through this winter season please do as it is easy to run and the admin is minimal, and it would be great to see more of our club members entering the league. Please see this link if interested.

End-of-Indoor Season 2015-2016

We've wrapped up another year in the club. This season has seen a huge number of records broken. Our Records officer put together this helpful graphic to show how the whopping 465 records can be broken down into the various categories.

On Saturday 26th we held our End-of-Season shoot, which was a (slightly modified) Vegas. The winner of this event on handicap score will be our Lady/Lord Paramount for the Big Weekend Shoot this summer.

Here are a few photos from this shoot.

Our results for the Fakenham Bowmen’s WA 18

A team from Netherhall braved the cold weather and snow showers to complete in Fakenham Bowmen’s WA 18 on Sunday 22 November. It was well worth the trip and a good time was had by all.

Even better news was Mark Garner bringing home the first place trophy for the mens compound, Paula Langton and Rachel Jacobs placing second and third in the ladies recurve and Tom Hartley third in the longbow.

Congratulations to all four of you!

Thanks to Fakenham Bowmen for putting on a great shoot.

Joanne Garner, on behalf of the Tournament Team, would like to add a few thank-you's;
  • Over the three sessions, we raised over £155 for the Royal British Legion, with a further £45 donated by the club. A massive thank-you to everyone who donated.
  • To our judges Pam Tonkin, Richard Custance and Adam Kentrop for their calm, fair judgement and for keeping everything running smoothly.
  • For the tournament team, who made my job a lot easier, and all those who helped before, during and after the competition.

And finally, to you the competitors, for coming along and supporting the competition. Without you, there would be no event.

Netherhall Archers Chosen to be a Performance Club

Netherhall Archers have been working hard with Archery GB to join the small set of clubs that have a Performance Specialism. Fourteen clubs in the UK have been identified for this: seven of which have now achieved this status, and the remaining seven are working towards it.

Netherhall Archers has achieved this status! Congratulations to the club as a whole. Our thanks go to the members of the Committee who have been working hard to get this recognition from Archery GB.

This is how Archery GB describe it:

  • Performance clubs strive to improve the performance of archers, coaches and officials, on a consistent basis.
  • A performance club is open to new ideas and seeks to create an environment that encourages excellence.
  • They want archers, coaches, judges and volunteers to achieve their potential and satisfy their own goals.
  • Performance clubs will assist in establishing a culture of performance development and works at a local level for archery in clubs, schools and community settings.
  • Over time Performance clubs will work to improve the overall standard of archers as they move along the talent pathway.

CAA EGM

An important EGM of the CAA to elect a new committee

Please support your county archery association, which has gone through a period of instability recently. A number of Netherhall archers are standing for positions in the CAA committee, and if you can attend this meeting it would demonstrate our commitment to make the county association work for all of Cambridgeshire's archery clubs.
