Castle Bowmen compete in Summer and Winter postal leagues -


In the Summer we shoot a Short Metric round (3doz @ 50m & 3doz @ 30m)

And our Longbow teams shoot a National round (4doz@ 60yd & 2doz @ 50 yd)

In the Winter we shoot a frostbite round (3dozen arrows just at 30m)


These are great opportunities for club members to have experience of tournament conditions without any pressure,

as they are all shot on our own ground.


In 2012  &  2013  Castle Bowmen  came  TOP  of  Division 1  in  the  National  Summer  Postal  league Tournament   -  Making us ‘technically’ the Best Archery Club in the UK
