E league coronavirus statement for 2019/2020 season

Over the last week, the BUCS EMG have been monitoring and discussing the current coronavirus pandemic and how it effects the e-league. As of March 17th, ArcheryGB posted that all archery in the UK should be postponed for the foreseeable future. This unprecedented step means that the month of March could only be a shortened leg of the e-league. We do not wish to give any advantage to archers who had a chance to shoot a round early in the month of March over those who had not. A large number of archers who would have – understandably – been practicing WA 18m rounds for the BUCS Indoors finals may not have had a chance to shoot a Portsmouth round in this time frame.

It is therefore with regret, that we have decided to end this season’s e-league a month early and as such the scores published for February are final for the 2019/2020 e-league season. We know this will come as a disappointment to many who wanted to see how they would have done this month, but we hope you can understand our decision. If you have any queries or questions about this change to the e league for this year, please email studentarcherycommittee@gmail.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

This year has been a new start for the e-league and we want to thank you for being patient with us as we’ve learnt the ropes of running it as we’ve gone along. There are a number of bumps along the road and we’ve found areas that we want to improve upon for next year. If you have any ideas then please let us know by emailing the address above.

As the coronavirus pandemic develops further, we hope you all stay safe and stay healthy, and we look forward to the recommencement of the indoor e league season in September this year.
