Scoring

After each end, the archers walk to their targets to determine their scores and retrieve their arrows.

Metric and imperial rounds each use slightly different scoring. A standard target face has 5 coloured zones. From the centre radiating outwards they are gold, red, blue, black and white.

For imperial scoring is: Gold 9 points, Red 7 points, Blue 5 points, Black 3 points and finally White 1 point.

For metric scoring, instead of going 9, 7, 5 etc. from the centre, the scoring is predictably 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and so on.  Each of the five coloured zones on the standard target face is divided into an inner and outer area. The inner area gets the extra point. Hence the inner gold is worth 10 points and the outer gold is worth 9 points, the inner red is 8 points and the outer red is worth 7 points.

When calling your scores to the target captain, you should do so in groups of three, for example "7 - 7 - 5" pause "5 - 5 - 3" starting with the highest scoring arrow and ending with the lowest. If you have a miss, just say "miss" and this will be recorded as 'M'on the score sheet.

Before and during the scoring, absolutely no one is allowed to touch the arrows.

When conflicts arise in the scoring, a judge is called upon for a decision on the value of the arrow.
