Ruth, Philip & Sarah show off their medals

Sunday saw the County indoor Championships, hosted by Jolly Archers at OneLeisure Recreation Centre in St. Ives.

A small but determined group of Netherhall archers set their sights on gold and met with 100+ archers from around the County to compete for titles in each of the major disciplines (Recurve, Barebow, Compound and Longbow).

Philip, our Chairman this year, drew boss 4B along with a nervous but excited archer from OOBAC who was at his first ever competition. As always, banter and conversation between ends was great fun and learning about other archers and their clubs is a big part of the joy of competition.

The sight of 50+ archers on the shooting line was pretty impressive and after three rounds of fierce competition we were delighted when the results were announced and Netherhall Archers had bagged three medals. The full results can be found here.

Recurve Men, Bronze Medal... Philip Watson

Recurve Ladies, Bronze Medal... Sarah Austin

Recurve Ladies, Double Portsmouth, Bronze Medal... Ruth Watson


Update: Just been confirmed by the tournament organisers that Netherhall Archers also took the Bronze medal in the Recurve Team event too! Well done to Philip, Ruth & Sarah.
