July WA720 – what a scorcher

Normally at our WA720, it is frosty, cold, windy and raining during the day. This year, we moved it to July and were treated to a bit, or should I say alot of sun and very little wind.

The day went well, and we finished in record time.

Results sheet attached, keep your eyes open for our 2023 WA720 on 15th July – entry form will be available as soon as AGB sanction it

Belvoir Archers 2021 Tournament Update – March 2021

Belvoir Archers have been watching the Covid Rates and also the vaccination programme.  With the majority of over 18s not having their second jab until mid September 2021 and the threat of the new variations of Covid-19, we have decided that it would be safer for us to postpone our shoots.

with this in mind, our updated schedule will be

WRS WA720             17th July 2021 moved to  16th July 2022  (awaiting approval from AGB with the WRS status move)
Summer Windsor        21st August 2021 moved to 20th July 2022  —  UKRS removed this year
Winter Windsor           18th September 2021 moved to 17th September 2022

entry forms will be available later in the year

Belvoir Archers 2021 tournament schedule

Due to the Covid Pandemic, we have rescheduled our 2021 tournaments to later in the year so that we can get away from the winter threat and hopefully more people are vaccinated.

WA720    moved from 10th April to 17th July
Summer Windsor   moved from 17th July to 21st August —  UKRS removed this year
Winter Windsor  planned for 18th September

The 2 & 3 shoot will be under review

These dates may change depending on how the year pans out, but in the mean time, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in the summer on an archery field

2019 “Summer” Windy Windsor

Saturday 20th July saw Belvoir Archers hold their 9th Summer Windsor.

It was an interesting day, sunny spells, heavy rain, light breeze, hurricane force winds.  The shoot had to be abandoned at change of distance from 50 to 40 yards (after 6 dozen) due to Thunder and Lightning in the local area.  We had already had two periods of heavy rain where the judges held the shoot and sent everyone for cover.

Thankyou to everyone who came and stayed for the day, to our Judges Mario Stankovic and Janet Short, our Lord Paramount (and birthday boy) Peter Sanderson and all the club members who worked hard to make the day go well.

not to forget our Sponsors, Custom Built Archery for their continued sponsorship of our tournaments. Continue reading


The club safeguarding page is now complete. As a club we have adopted the AGB Policies on safeguarding as best practice.

The policies are accessible via the Safeguarding Page and we would ask that all members look at those documents, which explain all of our responsibilities in relation to safeguarding the welfare of our fellow members within the club environment.

There are also links to Codes of Practice for our different categories of members. You should ensure that you are aware of the codes that apply to you, as breaches of these codes can result in further action.

Last year we introduced the 2 and 3 shoot to encourage archers to go out and shoot tournaments.  Well, it is back again this year, but this time, Bramcote Archery Club and Beeston Rylands Archers are also going to run a 2 and 3 shoot to encourage everyone.

To be able to shoot in the 2and3 shoot, you must be a 2nd or 3rd class archers.
Each bow class and gender will be competing against archers of their own class. so  3rd class gents recurve shoot against 3rd class gents recurve, 2nd class ladies longbow shoot against 2nd class ladies long bow …..

awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in categories. Continue reading

2015 Winter Windsor

Saturday saw Belvoir Archers host their 5th Winter Windsor.  The weather gods were with us, so was Bernie Dicks on his 50 (again) birthday.  We had a record breaking 68 archers booked in for the October shoot, with only 2 non shows on the day.

The Lord Paramount for the day was Chris Joyce, Chairman of Belvoir Archers, and our Judges were Mario Stankovic and Christopher Lowe (on his last formal judging duty in Belvoir Archers before the family depart for their new lives in Australia in January).

Everyone shot on our new foam layered targets, funded by recent training venue grant by Sport England.  Some Regional and County records were broken or equalled, which means more work for Sue Haynes our County and Regional Records Officer.

Darren, who had only finished his beginners course 5 weeks ago, shot for the first time and took a number of photos which can be seen here   WINTER WINDSOR PHOTOS
