Abbey Wand Shoot

From 2009 to 2019 the club held a Wand Shoot at its field.  The Abbey Wand round become the accepted standard, with other clubs like South Wilts using the same format. Such was the success of Abbey's Wand that we attracted archers from all over the country, keen to try something different. Unfortunately Covid hit, followed by Abbey losing the sports field.  The new venue was not suitable for Wand, so the equipment has been donated to other clubs.

Results and photos are on the Tournament website, or results can be viewed here

How did it work?

The wands are tall pieces of wood of different widths, faced with resilient foam.  Juniors shoot at 4” wands at 100 yards, Women and Men at 5” wands at 120 yards or 6” wands at 140 yards.  A hit scores 5 points.  In addition there is a 5’ scoring circle at the base of all wands.  Any arrows in the circle score 1 point.  Our shoot is a double round - each single consisting of three dozen arrows with six sighters before the first round.
