What is a Burntwood Round?

The Burntwood round was developed as a round to be shot alongside its equivalent round. It enables archers who do not wish to shoot long distances to be able to take part in competitions.

For the Burntwood round the target boss is always placed at 30m for seniors and 15m for juniors. Male and female archers shoot the same distance.

When a distance change takes place for the other targets the faces are changed on the Burntwood round.

If a Visually Impaired archer shoots Burntwood rounds then there are no sighting arrows to be shot at the change of faces.

Below is a list of Burntwood round that can be shot in tournaments and competitions.
