Target Archery Rounds

Indoor rounds are mostly shot in 3 arrow ends with 2 ends of sighters and metric scoring.

(Where appropriate) outdoor rounds are shot with the furthest distances shot first, then the bosses are moved closer to shoot the shorter distances. The further distances (60m and up) are shot in 6 arrow ends on 120cm faces, the closer distances (50m and under) are shot in 3 arrow ends on 80cm faces.

The Cawdor and Worcester rounds are both shot with 5-Arrow ends.

FITA (Federation International Tir L'Arc) is the international governing body for target archery, but is now known as World Archery, usually abbreviated to WA.

Distances for WA / FITA rounds are measured in metres.

All WA / FITA rounds use metric scoring and shooting is timed; Archers are allowed 2 minutes for 3 arrow ends and 4 minutes for 6 arrow ends.

The Double WA / FITA 1440 round consists of two 1440 rounds shot on consecutive days.

Indoor rounds are shot in 3 arrow ends and archers get two ends of practice before scoring begins.

Imperial vs Metric Scoring

In Metric (10-Zone) scoring, the archer can score 1 to 10 points per arrow. Scoring in the gold area can be a little complicated, depending on the round being shot, and on whether the archer is shooting a compound bow or not, but as a quick summary: The middle gold ring is the 10 ring for most archers, working down to 1 point for the outer white. The inner gold ring is the 10 ring for compounds, and is recorded as an X for everyone else. The X ring is still worth 10 points but the number of Xs shot can be used to determine ties, but this doesn't apply to indoor shooting.

In Imperial (5-Zone) scoring only the different colour zones are used. The archer scores 9 points for an arrow in the gold, 7 for red, 5 for blue, 3 for black and 1 for white.

In both Metric and in Imperial, if the arrow cuts a dividing line the archer is awarded the higher score for the arrow.

Imperial rounds (measured in yards) are mainly shot in the United Kingdom, where they fall under the control of the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) who operate under the name Archery GB (usually abreviated to AGB).

Metric (WA / FITA) rounds, measured in metres, are used for most other tournaments.
