This is a fun and social competition for those who want to shoot during the winter months and drink tea with fellow archers! A Frostbite round is 3 dozen arrows shot at 30m on an 80cm face.
This year the league will run from October 2022 to March 2023.

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals for the individual bow style leagues and an “Overall League” winner’s trophy. Awards will be presented at the Club Championship in September 2023.

This year we hope to also be participating in the British Archery Postal Frostbite League. More information will be provided in October.
