Scores will be compared using the handicap tables.
Juniors may submit scores which match the above criteria and may be selected for the Senior Team if their scores are high enough.

It is hoped car sharing will take place where possible to keep costs down.
The ArcheryGB National Midsummer Team Championships will be held on 24th and 25th of June 2017 at Lilleshall. The event will comprise of teams of three of the same gender competing in either, compound, recurve or longbow events. The shoot (based on 2016 details) will be two days, with a team qualifying 70/50m round on the Saturday morning, followed by the team H2H eliminations on the Saturday afternoon, very much on an Olympic basis, finishing with a Gents/Ladies WA1440 on the Sunday. The winning teams will be judged to be the most successful team across the three disciplines, assessed in the same manner as the UK Masters.
It is expected that selected archers will make themselves available for Team Practice events prior to the Tournament.
