As you progress on your archery journey, one way of measuring your progress is through Classification. There are nine different classifications grouped into three tiers. The Archer tier offers 3rd, 2nd and 1st Class awards. Then the Bowman tier offers 3rd, 2nd and 1st Class awards. And finally there is the Master Bowman tier which comprises Master Bowman, Grand Master Bowman and Elite Master Bowman awards.
To achieve each classification requires shooting rounds at progressively higher scores. You can use various online handicap calulators to work out your classification. One such calculator can be found at https://archerycalculator.co.uk. However, the official Archery GB handicap tables have been made into handy PDF guides, which we have linked to below.
