Castle Bowmen Open Junior Shoot - 'The Val Goodman Junior May Metrics'  - May


The  Only  Annual  12dozen Junior-only Tournament in Wales  -

A Chance for the Juniors to have their own Big Tournament without Senior Archers taking any of the Glory.





2017 was the 4th Annual Castle Bowmen ‘Val Goodman’ Junior May Metrics  Tournament was a great success, gaining praise from judges and archers alike. In no small part adding to the day was the excellent sunny weather throughout the whole event and the ultra-efficiency of the Castle Bowmen working party in the running and organising of the day.

The May Metrics tournament is the only one in Wales held annually which is exclusively for Junior archers to shoot a 12 dozen round. This year nearly 2 dozen of Wales’ finest young archers, from nearly 3 counties, travelled to Cardiff to compete.

Castle Bowmen Juniors were out in force and performed flawlessly.

Ryan P’, Luke Y’, Sarah I’, Geoffrey C’ and Candice L’ ALL shot Seasons and Personal Best’s and all took 1st place in their respective categories and ALL broke the club records for their rounds too.

Candice, shooting in her first tournament also claimed a new Glamorgan County record.

Geoffrey, also shooting in his first tournament, also claimed not only the County record for his category but also broke the existing Welsh record.

Well done to all the archers and thanks to Val for acting as Lady Paramount for the day.
