Mid Kent Archery League

Mid Kent Archery League (MKAL)

The Mid Kent Archery league (“MKAL”) is a friendly team competition and this year (2018) includes five teams from across the region. The most important rules for this year’s contest are below for your information.

 If you want to shoot a league match you must have signed up to be part of the team by the Sunday before the match. Ideally, it would be good if you could give Stuart as much notice as possible of your interest in a match. However, you do not need to sign up to all league matches in the season!

As teams might be restricted to 12, archers places will be given on a first come first serve basis. The “Team Sheet” will be posted on the website and/or emailed to all participating Archers the week before the match.

On match day, if it is a home game, all archers should be at the field by 9:30am in order to help set up the field and prepare for the match. On away games, you should meet at the away teams ground by 10am to set up your bow and be ready for sighters.  Please check the event page for away fixture venues.

If you want to sign up for a league match please complete the sign up sheet in the container or email:
