Competition news

Congratulations to those shooting at Ely Archers Portsmouth

Just a short update congratulating all the archers who shot for Netherhall on Saturday 17th at Ely Archers. It was Ely Archers 11th Annual Portsmouth and it was great to hear that all who shot came away with a medal. Max Harris came first in the junior gent’s recurve with Daniel Grover coming third, Emma de Mos came second in the junior lady’s recurve, this was also her debut shooting competitions in the UK and Daniel Dace came first in junior gents’ compound.

Max kindly collected the medals and I believe it is planned that they will be presented at this month’s EoM.

Congratulation to you all!

New County Coach in Cambridgeshire

I received information last night that Paula Langton has passed her final assessment and is now a certified County Coach (one of only five in the county). This is a fantastic achievement as is a 12-month course and is quite intense with assignments, presentations and practical assessment’s and I am sure Paula is relived it is all over and she can get back to some sort of normality. I am sure I speak for us all in congratulate her on this achievement.

As some of you may be aware David Pilsworth has been working hard on his level 2 courses and had his final practical assessment today. I have just received the news that David has today passed his final assessment and is now a qualified level 2 coach. I am sure I speak for us all in congratulating David on his achievement.

Two new level 1 coaches

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.

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.
