Short Metric Team
Greenwood Osterley Archers are one of the teams that participate in the Short Metric League arranged by the Middlesex County Archery Association which aims to introduce newer archers to competitive outdoor archery, visiting other Middlesex Archery Clubs in the spirit of friendly rivalry.
The competition is a Short Metric Round, shot in two distances of 50 meters and 30 meters on a 80 cm Target Face with a maximum score of 720. The distances are not that far although with a smaller target face.
Last 2014, the club took home the Handicap Shield led by Sailesh, one of the club coaches. The team composed mostly of 2nd year to veteran archers. If you are new to the club we encourage you take part in this friendly competition. The club will usually shoot in the Grasshoppers Field but will also be visiting other archery clubs in West London specially rival clubs.
Competitive members and specially the improving shooters will be awarded medals apart from achieving specific classifications and scores. Participating youth club members will also be recognized for their efforts and performance. So join in, the more the merrier!
