Virtual Archery Leagues 2016-17
|Welcome to the VAL competition
This is the homepage of the Virtual Archery Leagues, the most successful and longest lasting internet archery league - operating since 1999.
This is the seventeenth annual competition. For the 2016/17 season we have over 235 entries from all parts of the UK and around the world including Sweden, Jersey, New Zealand 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.
Hope you all had a great Xmas and New Year break and thanks to all of you who managed to get their scores into VAL on time. Results now available. 2016/17 results
The new score submission system has now been put in place for all four leagues and most members used it to submit their best November scores. This has made the work of compiling the divisions so much easier as the emails are now limited mostly to club entries. One day we will have a system whereby scores go straight into the tables and points are allocated automatically and the tables adjusted for the changes in positions. Until then its done by human hand! So please bear with us.
Entries for the 2016/17 competition are now closed and best October scores were due by 5th November 2016. We are now busy preparing the ranking lists from which members will be allocated to divisions when we receive the November scores. So good luck to everyone taking part.
The new score submission system is working well so we will be working to introduce it for all divisions - watch this space.
