Archery Etiquette (taken from the Archery GB guidelines)

A Good Archer:

  • Does not talk in a loud voice when others are shooting.
  • Does not talk to another archer who obviously prefers to be silent.
  • Does not make any exclamation on the shooting line which might startle another archer who is in the act of shooting.
  • Does not go behind the target to retrieve his/her arrows before his scores have been recorded.
  • Does not walk up and down the shooting line comparing scores.
  • Does not touch anyone else’s equipment without permission.
  • Does not leave litter.
  • When calling scores, does so in groups of three. For example, “7-7-5” pause “5-3-1”
  • If he/she breaks another’s arrow through carelessness, pays for it in cash on the spot.
  • Thanks the Target Captain at the end of the round for recording the scores.
