Target Archery Rounds

With the British longbow fabled for many centuries it is not surprising that target archery developed in Britain as a sport and is the most popular discipline in Britain today. Royal Patronage allowed many archery groups for sport to emerge. In England the Royal Toxophilite Society was founded in 1781 and is still in existence today. The Ancient Society of Kilwinning Archers in Scotland is the oldest archery organisation in the United Kingdom if not in the world. Its first recorded Papingo shoot was in 1483 and the Society has been in existence ever since.

Development

In 1844 the first Grand National Meeting was held at York. The round shot then was called the York Round. Many of the rounds that were formalised when GNAS was formed in 1861 are named after the Clubs or Counties where they were developed.

In 1931 the International Archery Federation (Federation Internationale de Tir A l'Arc or FITA was founded with Britain joining in 1932 and adding the FITA rounds to the British repertoire. GNAS then developed the Metric rounds for Junior archers. GNAS now trades as Archery GB (AGB) and FITA has changed its name to World Archery (WA) (from September 2013 the FITA rounds may change their name to the 1440 Round and all the award badges will be renamed WA Awards)
