OVERTON BLACK ARROWS

Watership down Open Competition

Each year we hold our Field Target Archery competition on the hills above the village of Kingsclere. The course is widely accepted as being one of the most challenging in the country. In 2017 we hosted both the Hampshire and English tournaments at this venue and in 2018 we hosted the All British Championships.
