Worthing Winners Featured
On Sunday 17th November, Arundown Archery club held their 59th Indoor Tournament. This tournament is always very well attended by archers of all abilities from Beginners to County and even National team standard from Clubs all over Sussex and surrounding counties.
Worthing archers were out in force, with a total of 9 members shooting over the course of the day in Single, Double and Triple Portsmouth Rounds. Warmed by the newly installed heaters in the usually icy cold Sports hall, Worthing archers were soon basking in success.
First time competitors, Vic Addis and Jen Diplock soon got to grips with the anomalies of Indoor shooting, adjusting to the confined, noisy conditions and settling into holding their own against more seasoned archers with years of experience.
Jen Diplock took home Silver medals for Ladies Barebow Single (459) and Double rounds (921).
Vic Addis was 7th in the Gents Barebow Single round (480) and 4th in the Double Round (962).
In The Gents Recurve rounds, our largest contingent of archers were placed as follows;
Single Round - Dan Mitchell Bronze medal (561)
Dan Talbot 6th (551), Clive Talbot 18th (462) and Barrie Le Grove 19th(444)
Double Round - Dan Mitchell Bronze medal (1120)
Triple Round - Dan Mitchell Gold medal (1653)
In the Ladies Recurve Nicky McDowell (and Lady Paramount) took the Gold medal in Single (549) and Double rounds (1095)
The Gents Compound Unlimited once again saw Gavin Sutherland taking Gold in all three rounds, (587, 1169, 1751) and 8 year old Dan Sutherland followed in his Father's footsteps, not only competing in all 3 sessions, (a grand total of 180 arrows), but also taking the Gold medal in all three rounds of the Junior Gents(U12) Compound Unlimited. (456 ,920, 1373)
Collectively our archers achieved 13 medals, but the tally did not end there as Worthing came out top in the Club teams single round adding further Gold medals for the team of Gavin, Dan and Nicky, with team 2 (Dan Talbot, Vic Addis and Jen Diplock) taking 7th place.
This was a tremendous achievement by all those who took part. Well Done All!
