Ready for competition or maybe your first?


Archery is great fun and competing at events is even better! If this is your first time competing or you are a seasoned competitor, its time to wax the strings, check your vanes, replace those cracked nocks and get ready to do battle against your personal best. Everyone is welcome to enter the Archery NSW events no matter how long you have been shooting or how good you are. As long as you can put six arrows on the target at your distance, then it’s time to have a go!  It's all music to a toxophilite’s (archers) ears.

So Archers, ANSW are pleased to invite you to join the upcoming tournaments. If you have any questions please contact me.

ANSW Field Championships – Enter HERE

Field archery is one of the more exciting disciplines of archery. Typically groups of 4 people move from target to target, which means plenty of time to renew friendships or make new ones. With a wide variety of courses available throughout NSW the events are sure to see increased attendance and competition. Archers shoot from different coloured pegs based on age and bow type. Archers should have site settings for every 5 meters & takes approx. 4-5 hours.

  • Red Peg max distance 60M
  • Blue Peg max distance 50M
  • Yellow Peg max distance 40M

ANSW Clout Championships – Entries not open

A white vertical triangle represents the “Clout”. Lobbing arrows somewhare between 100 - 180 meters at a target laid out on the ground is both challenging and rewarding, every archer should participate at least once. Its an excellent discipline and a great day out. It is certainly one of the more social disciplines with the scoring shared amongst archers and plenty of time to chat walking to and from the target. Clout shoot at distances from 100m – 180m.  With practice rounds the event takes about 2 - 3 hours. Different age groups and division shoot different distances.
