Welcome to the VAL competition

This is the homepage of the Virtual Archery League the most successful and longest lasting internet archery league - operating since 1999.

The sixteenth annual competition  in the 2015/16 season  had 230 entries from all parts of the UK and around the world including Sweden, Jersey, New Zealand, Thailand and the US.

Archers compete in divisions against members of a similar standard. There are separate leagues for bare bow, compound, longbow and recurve archers.

Medals are awarded to the winners  and second and third places in each division at the end of the competition each season.

The competition runs from October to March. To find out more about the league click on any of the links. Membership costs just 3.



Entry for the 2016/17 competition is  open UNTIL 30 October.

Invitations to enter this year's competition have been sent to everyone who took part last season and we hope to attract many new members to take part.
Why not see if any other archers in your club would be interested in taking part. We welcome club entries - all you need to do is collect their names and send details to  Individuals will be allocated to divisions in the usual way. Club organisers will get a free entry and all they need to do is send in their club members' scores each month.

Rankings for 2016/17 will be published as soon as we have all the results in each league

Barrie Monk has been running the recurve divisions for at least the last twelve years, perhaps even longer and has decided to call it a day. VAL will take over this role until we have another volunteer so all scores need to be sent to  Nick Taylor has agreed to continue to cover bare bow, compound and long bow divisions and yourscores for these divisions will therefore need to be sent to him at: [and copied in the usual way to] each month.

REMINDER:: Don't forget to let Val know if you change your e-mail address.
