Outdoor Rankings - 2017 / 2018 - interim rankings updated 12th July
Please note that selection criteria are published separately from the rankings criteria and may include round types that are not included currently in the rankings, i.e. 720 round scores, and can be found on the performance page.
Scottish Archery keep target archery rankings for all archers who compete in open competitions. We keep separate outdoor rankings for senior and junior target and combined rankings for indoor.
Scores from competitions that are Scottish Record Status (SRS) and above are included in the rankings. If you shoot scores outwith Scotland that you wish to include then you need to send them to the scores collator.
Each year we publish the ranking criteria that tells you what rounds are being included in the rankings and also the deadlines for receipt of scores and who to send scores to when you haven't shot them in Scotland.
From 2000, outdoor rankings have been compiled using an Excel database. Prior to that only scores 1000+ on a 1440 round or a converted imperial round counted for rankings and only the Top 10 recurve archers' names were published in the Annual SAA Book.
So here we have outdoor senior rankings from 2000, and junior from 2009. Indoor rankings start from the 2005-06 season.
