The first County Novice Indoor Championships since lockdown took place on Saturday 4th March at Harton Academy Sports Centre, hosted by Whitburn Archers.
55 archers of all ages came together, with many taking part in their very first competition. Although it was a relaxed and friendly shoot judges were there to explain the technicalities of competitions and help answer questions and give guidance on procedures.
There was a great atmosphere and the event ran very smoothly, thanks to the work of Whitburn archers in making sure all needs were catered for. We were all very well looked after.
County medals were awarded across the 4 bow styles of Recurve, Compound Barebow and Longbow.
We now have our 2023 Indoor Novice Champions and hope that the experience will have given them a taste for competition. We look forward to seeing you again at future events.
Congratulations to all who took part!
