Britain's best archers compete in Robin Hood's home town
Following the success of the 2013 finals, which attracted 4,500 spectators, for the second year in a row the 2014 National Series Final will take place at Wollaton Hall on the last weekend of August (30-31).

Wollaton Hall, situated not far from Nottingham City Centre, is a grand country estate surrounded by acres of parkland with plenty of space for archery trials. It is a grand and fitting setting to display the skills of the best archers in Great Britain. The final will feature the top eight archers from the men's and women's recurve bow and men's and women's compound bow. Not surprisingly, the finals of 2013 attracted the highest level archers in the country, including several Olympians.

In the grounds of Wollaton, there will also be refreshments, plenty of food choices, activities for children, representatives from local archery clubs, and a special area for visitors to try out their own archery skills.
