Archery records are kept by clubs, Counties, and Regions, as well as Archery GB and World Archery. The records are categorised by bow-style, gender and age (for juniors only), for eligible rounds and conditions. All archers including para- and VI archers are eligible to shoot for these records.
VI Archery Records
There are three organisations that maintain specific records for VI archery. Each has their own set of requirements in terms of sight classification of the archer, the archer and their equipment and the rounds that are recognised.
World Archery (WA) records (opens in new window) are maintained for archers with international sight classifications competing in “World Record status” competitions. Classifications, equipment and rounds are specified in the WA rules (Book 3, Chapter 21) (opens in new window).
Please note that World Archery records cannot automatically be accepted as BBS-AS records and a separate BBS-AS claim is required.
Archery GB (AGB) records (opens in new window) are maintained for archers competing in “UK Record status” competitions and meet the requirements specified in Shooting Administrative Procedure (SAP) 5 (opens in new window).
Please note that Archery GB records cannot automatically be accepted as BBS-AS records and a separate BBS-AS claim is required.
British Blind Sport - Archery Section
BBS-AS records are maintained for members of BBS-AS.
Unlike World Archery and Archery GB records,
BBS-AS records must be claimed by the archer.
Like the other records, there are various criteria such as the type of tournament that records can be claimed at etc.
These criteria and how to claim are outlined in our
Records Criteria and Claims document.
Also available is our Records Claim Form.
When making a claim please ensure that the current criteria are met and that you use the latest version of the claim form.
Please note that we are unable to automatically accept World Archery or Archery GB records as BBS-AS records and therefore a separate BBS-AS claim is required.
