- The main aims of the MCAA Short Metric League is to introduce newer archers to competitive outdoor archery and to visit other Middlesex Archery Clubs. Archers of all levels compete in a spirit of friendly rivalry.
- The competition is contested on a league basis on team scores and also on team handicapped scores.
- Each club shoots 3 home and 3 away matches in a season that usually commences in May and runs through to the first weekend in September. The Presentation Shoot is to be held on Sunday 25th September at a venue to be agreed (details will be available soon). 2016 marks the 19th season of the MCAA Short Metric League.
- The draw for this seasons matches was made on 23rd March 2016 where Clubs who wished to enter the MCAA Short Metric League attended to witness the draw and agree match dates.
- The clubs competing this year are: Aquarius Archery Club, Bowmen of Harrow, Hampstead Bowmen, Greenwood Osterley Archers and Pinner Bowmen.
- There are three team bow categories Recurve, Compound and Longbow. There are individual awards for highest individual scores (Gents, Ladies, Junior Boy, Junior Girl) at each discipline.
- Made Score Badges are available to purchase for score levels of 250, 350, 450, 550, 600 & 650. @£1.50 each. Please see your club league officer who will obtain them for you.
- During the season a Short Metric News letter is produced 2 or 3 times and is available as a pdf download from the MCAA website Short Metric League page.
- There is also a Twitter feed for MCAA Short Metric League News please follow us on Twitter @SMLeagueNews.
- This season should again prove to be very competitive if the past two seasons are anything to go by. Some of the handicapped team matches were lost by only a few points and when there are sometimes 7000pts per team this shows how close things can be.
We are all looking forward to the coming season.
