The prestigious 8 day field archery tournament over 4 different venues shot to N.F.A.S. rules.
The South West Challenge as it is known today was established over 20 years ago and is recognised as a major field archery competition in the U.K. The competition is held over 8 shooting days and each venue is a competition in its own right. Scores are carried over for the 8 days and there will be an overall winner in each class and style. Also, a unique handicap system has been designed to produce the Victor Ludorum winner which is open to all archers who complete the 8 days. So, not only have you a chance of winning at each venue, but also over the accumulated 8 days and a chance for the Victor Ludorum trophy. A certificate is given to each archer who completes the 8 days as recognition of the achievement and a “thank you” from the hosting clubs. It has been customary over the years to offer unique trophies for those that achieve 1st place and these trophies have become much sought after. For many it is not about the winning but the taking part and with changed groups at every venue, you will be sure to make new friends and acquaintances. Patches will be available for the 2018 Challenge.
