The Summer schedule runs from April to September, the winter schedule is from October to March.
All of our shooting events are classed as “non record status tournament” days which allows archers to shoot for Club trophies, awards, a classification and a handicap; provided a correctly completed score sheet is submitted.
We award trophies and medals for the summer and winter competitions. These can be found on the Awards page (updated after bi-annual award ceremonies in November and June).
Members may also undertake the Club's "252" scheme - a way to challenge yourself to improve your shooting. This is particularly useful to newer Club members. Remember, you cannot earn either a classification or a handicap from shooting these rounds.
Anyone wishing to submit scores for consideration as a county record or county ranking must comply with Surrey Archery's published rules.
If you fancy attending some external tournaments, Brighton Bowmen have a Tournament Diary that lists most major open tournaments (although they appear to have stopped updating it) and have a look at the "Beginners Guide for Attending Tournaments" (link below).
Details of county championship shoots can be found on the Surrey Archery website (link via above button).
Warlingham usually have 3 recurve teams and 1 compound team entered for the Surrey and National postal leagues for winter.
The Club's recurve ‘A’ team won the 1st Division title in 2018-19.
There is no competition in 2020/21.
The 2019/20 competition was abandoned.
(including member's outdoor scores, current classification and handicaps)
Member's awards (trophies and medals) for summer, winter and personal achievement together with the Club's record holders can be found on the Awards page.
Members' outdoor scores for 2019 - 2020 (Updated to April 2020), now includes handicap score for each round shot and '252' awards.
Some members may appear on the handicap list but not on the classifications list. This just reflects the way earlier handicaps are carried forward even if the archers submitted scores for less than 3 rounds.
