The Basics

  • A target archery competition involves shooting at a ten ring target. Each ring is worth a different pointed value depending on how close to the centre it is – with the outermost ring worth one point and the central ring worth ten points.
  • An archery target involves five different colours with an ‘outer’ and ‘inner’ ring of each colour. The five colours are white, black, blue, red, and gold – with inner gold being worth the most points.
  • In a team game, members of the same team take it in turns to shoot, with their points cumulated to make a team total. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
