There’s no rest for the stars of British archery, with more top class domestic events for your diaries taking place before the end of the year.
On the club scene, the finals of the 2017 ontarget competition are hosted at Lilleshall this weekend (Sunday 17th September). This year’s quartet of finalists are all newcomers, after last year’s winners and finalists were all dumped out in the quarter finals.
In the first semi, Bowmen of Minchinhampton (Gloucestershire) go up against The Nonsuch Bowmen (Surrey), with the 2nd semi-final an all East Midlands affair as Burton Joyce Archers (Nottinghamshire) take on Bowmen of Rutland (Leicestershire). The winning club will take home the ontarget trophy, as well a first prize of £500. Good luck to everybody involved.
2017 National Series Finals
The following weekend – 23rd and 24th September – sees the National Series Finals – taking place at Eastside City Park, next to Millennium Point in the heart of Birmingham city centre.
The event is the climax of a series of qualification rounds throughout the year. Saturday will see the compound competition, with the recurve on the Sunday – supported by other events and sponsors throughout the weekend. The event is free for spectators and it will also be streamed live on Facebook. You can download the full schedule here.
National Indoor Weekend and Trade Show
Looking further ahead, the National Indoor Weekend 2017 will be taking place once again at Stoneleigh NAEC, on 2- 3 December.
As in previous years the Junior Indoor Championships and the Back 2 Back will take place on the Saturday and the Senior Indoor Championships will take place on the Sunday.
Entries for the Junior Nationals are now open – and if you finished in the top 24 of last year’s back2back you will be eligible to register for this year’s renewal. Any unsold places will go on general sale next week.
