The BA Winter Postal League (Frostbite) is shot November to March inclusive.
There are two leagues in the competition, i.e. Frostbite, and Portsmouth. Each league is divided into divisions of six teams. The selection of the teams in each division is done either according to the estimated scores sent in by the Clubs or on the basis of the previous year’s scores.

Frostbite – 3 dozen arrows at 30 metres. Must be shot outdoors on 80 cm face, scoring 10, 9, 8, etc. Only tens score as golds. 6 sighters.
Portsmouth – 5 dozen arrows at 20 yards on 60 cm face scoring 10, 9, 8 etc. Only tens score as golds. 6 sighters.

In each competition 3 archers form a team.
Each team shoots one match a month throughout the Winter season, thereby shooting against each team in turn in the same division. Scores are then sent each month to the BA Postal League.

Points are awarded as follows:
Win – 3 points
Draw – 2 points
Lose – 1 point

Against the Division number there is a figure in brackets. This is the ‘Division’ score. It is an average of the estimates for all the teams in the division, and may be slightly different from the scores expected by an individual team. Most teams are put into a division which relates to their average monthly score for the previous season.
