SBA Inaugural Indoor Champs

South Bucks Archers held their inaugural Indoor Club championship on Tuesday. With a new round designed for the event by the club’s records officer, archers shot 64 arrows each at 4 different targets- one winner per pool then going through to an eliminator round.


The eliminator round saw AFB archer Ian Brown, Barebow archer John Thomas and Recurve archers Leanne Medhurst, Sebastian Gray and Michael Winn pitted in knock out stages.

Sebastian Gray, the only junior archer, was the first to be knocked out, followed by Ian Brown with Leanne Medhurst finishing in 3rd place.

A tight final round then saw John Thomas narrowly beat Michael Winn to become the club’s first Indoor Champion.

SBA Records Officer, Kevin Gray, said that it had been hard work creating the competition from scratch but it had been a thoroughly enjoyable event and a well-deserved win for John Thomas.IMG 4107
