The Leicestershire and Rutland County Archery Association (L&RCAA) was formed in May 1950 and is run by volunteers from different archery clubs within the county. The County committee meets once a month (except December) at the Kirby Muxloe Sports Club.
If you are a club within Leicestershire and Rutland, you are entitled to appoint a representative to come along to the meetings and report back to your club.
We extend a very warm welcome to any archer within the county and we are anxious to dispel any fears you may have about coming to the meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet socially with your fellow archers and to hear how county business is conducted.

Lizzie Warner - National Indoor Champion
Congratulations to Lizzie Warner on all her achievements in the last few weeks. The 17-year old Kirby Muxloe archer won the Junior Ladies Recurve title at the National Indoor Championships in December with a competition PB of 582 on the Portsmouth round. In the Senior Championships on the following day she headed the UK archers in the WA18 ranking round with a score of 571, beating her PB by 26 points. She went on to win her head-to-heads 6-2, 7-1, 6-2, 7-1 to reach the final where she came up against Aida Roman of Mexico, silver medalist at the 2012 Olympics. Roman isn’t British however, which meant that Lizzie was already the National Senior Champion. After a good contest in the final, with Lizzie winning one end and tying another, she was eventually beaten 7-3.
She has recently been selected for the GB Junior team (uner 21) for the European Junior Indoor Championships in Vittel, France in March.
At the Leicester Mercury Sports Awards, held at the Leicester Tigers rugby ground, she was presented with the Young Sportswoman of the Year award.
Well done Lizzie.
