Archers are placed into two teams of (equal ability) Bowlers and Batsmen, on the toss of a coin a team captain will call and the winning captain will decide to Bat or Bowl.
The objective of the game is to score as many runs (points) as possible before the Batter’s lose all their wickets and is Bowled out, In order to do this the Bowler’s have to hit the Inner Gold (to score a wicket) as many times as there are Batsmen. Conversely, the Batsmen score 6 runs for a Gold, 4 runs for a Red, 3 runs for a Blue, 2 runs for a Black and 1 run for a White.
For every missed shot by the Bowler’s, an extra run is added to the Batting sides score. This is called a wide.
For every miss made by a batter, a wicket is awarded to the Bowling team.
Archers shoot in Pairs, 1 from each team and shoot 1 arrow each.
Nobody drops out and everyone keeps taking turns until the Bowler’s succeed.
When the Batter’s are Bowled out. The team’s reverse roles and repeats the process. The winners are the team with the most “runs”. In fairness, each team should shoot the same number of arrows – so no extra runs are scored after the last wicket has fallen.
Target faces being used on the day it is determined by the organisers.
Players shoot 3 arrows each. The closest individual arrow to the centre wins. You can do a rough score using the rings, but an actual measurement to the centre must be used if there are multiple arrows in the highest scoring ring.
