National Outdoor Championships

ANZ Outdoor Nationals Entry Forms and Information


We welcome all archers & arbalests to come and enjoy with us the 73rd Archery New Zealand National Championships & Open 2016. The National Championships aim to cater for all archers regardless of skill level. We would like to see as many archers as possible at the event to enjoy the fun, friendship and competition.

The Target Championships will be decided on the combined results of a single WA 1440 and a WA 72 Arrow Ranking Round. Individual and team match play events will also be held for the Recurve and Compound archers.  Crossbow will shoot TC900 rounds.

JAMA events are designed to accommodate the younger archers with distances appropriate to their skill levels and with helpers to assist with scoring. The Senior & Masters’ rounds will follow the World Archery distances. There will be the opportunity for the recurve men Masters 65+ to shoot the Murrumbeena and Burton rounds.

All events are being held in the Trentham area of Upper Hutt.

For those unfamiliar with the Wellington district, Upper Hutt is a small city located about a 35 minute drive north of Wellington and 15 minutes north of Lower Hutt. There are several supermarkets and shopping centres in Upper Hutt.

The Field Championships will be decided on two field rounds: WA marked 24 target and an unmarked WA 24 target 3D round.

The venue will be Trentham Camp Archery Club, Somerville Range, Messines Avenue, Upper Hutt. Somerville Range will also be the venue for the Clout Championships.
The Target and Match Play Championships will be held at Trentham Memorial Park, Upper Hutt. The entrance is halfway along Brentwood Street (off Ferguson Drive).

Please encourage your archery friends and your supporters to join you this year at the 73rd National Championships and to participate at whatever level you all enjoy. We also invite overseas archers to join us at this event along with Bow Hunters, Traditional Archers & NZFAA.

We look forward to seeing you all in January 2016.
