    On old chesnut, women & men's comps

    Watched the darts last night and Fallon Sherrock was the first woman in the World Champs to beat a man. Not a freak occurance, just some really good darts by both players. Why are we still splitting the two in archery, particularly indoors where poundage means nothing?

    Indoor classification - why are ladies and gents scores different?

    I'm sure this must have been covered before, but I was wondering why the indoor classification scores were different for gents and ladies. eg. "C" Class Portsmouth Gents 554 Ladies 534 WA18 Gents 516 Ladies 479 etc.... The discipline is the same. Bow weight makes no difference when shooting...

    Decline of H2H evidenced by AGB Ranking list

    Hi Just reviewing the AGB Ranking list for 2017 - only 155 Gent Recurves. In 2016 - 204 gent recurves. In 2015 - 233 gent recurves Not checked the other categories. Is this evidence of the decline in clubs running WA70/WA50 with H2H? There are plenty of WA70s run during the season, but very few...

    H2H for 2017 season

    On the back of the thread about GNAS vs WA rounds I thought I'd post something about the availability of Olympic/H2H rounds. Up until 2016 our club ran a Olympic H2H at the beginning of July. This was born from running a National Series event until 2013. We continued running WA 70 plus H2H...
