Smoking Policy
Updated November 2018

Throughout this policy where smoking is refereed to, this also applies to E-cigarettes/vaping.

Whilst recognising that some people may wish to smoke, we all have a responsibility to protect those who do not wish to smoke or suffer from the effects of secondary smoking.

To comply with legislation, and in seeking to create a pleasant and healthy environment for all, Archery GB operates a no smoking policy in all its premises, including sports hall and club houses.  At all times, at all Archery GB NGB/Region/County/Club external archery events/venues, smoking is prohibited on the Field of Play. The “Field of Play” is defined as the shooting area, including all required overshoot, and all areas behind the shooting line extending to a point at least five metres beyond the last archer’s tent or shelter.

When permitted, smoking must only take place in open spaces well away (a minimum of five metres) from building entrances and windows.

As a precaution against fire, a condition of using a tent or shelter at an archery venue is that you do not smoke or use a naked flame inside that tent or shelter.

Smoking at Archery GB meetings and competitions is only permitted with the approval of Tournament Organisers and/or club officials. Tournament Organisers and/or Club officials wishing to run non-smoking events may do so at their sole discretion. When Tournament Organisers and/or Club officials elect to tolerate smoking at a meeting or competition, there is to be a designated smoking area; however, this area must be at least five metres behind the last archer’s tents and shelters. Tournament Organisers and/or Club officials wishing to extend the distance beyond five metres may do so at their sole discretion.

At all archery events specifically for juniors, smoking is prohibited and there is to be no designated smoking area.

Where specific venues/events have more restrictive no smoking conditions than those laid out in this policy (ie venues where smoking is prohibited), the more restrictive conditions will apply.

Smoking Rules out our Shooting Venues

Marazion Community Centre

As this venue is a public place, smoking is prohibited on the premises.  This includes the car park and in vehicles parked in the car park.  The smoking area is therefore outside the entrance to the car park.

Trevethoe (H Tempest Ltd)

As this venue is on private property, smoking rules are decided by the property owner.  Smoking at Trevethoe is prohibited in all areas apart from the smoking shelter located behind the blue skip in the car park to the left of the main property (the car park on the way to the toilets).  Members are advised that this area is covered by CCTV which is in constant operation.

Consequences for Non-Compliance

Non-compliance with this policy may result in disciplinary action.
