Archery Australia Update – COVID-19:
At this unprecedented time, we understand that everyone is impacted in some way and want to express our best wishes to everyone within our archery community.
Archery Australia would like to provide an update below in relation to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
QRE’s, Archery Australia Registered Tournaments and World Archery Registered Tournaments:
With the latest Community Sport Guidelines from the Minister for Youth and Sport in mind (Please Click Here) and the rapidly changing environment, Archery Australia would like to announce that as of the Monday, 23 March 2020, all QRE’s, all Archery Australia Registered Tournaments and all World Archery Registered Tournaments will either be cancelled or postponed until the 30th April 2020. Those wishing to cancel will receive a refund for any registration fees.
Each State and Territory Government has specific guidelines and restrictions around what activities are possible. Please ensure you follow the latest Federal and State government guidelines and restrictions before undertaking any archery activity. We will be working closely with each RGB on this to provide updates in due course.
