Indoor Matchplay @ Archers Of Warrnambool
Jan 19 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Indoor Matchplay @ Archers Of Warrnambool | Allansford | Victoria | Australia

 

Matchplay is an exciting form of archery developed by World Archery to create an appealing media and spectator friendly archery spectral. It’s also a whole lot of fun!

Matchplay is the event that is used for most international competitions such as, World Target (Open and Youth), World Field and World Indoor Championships including Individual, Team and Mixed Team events.

In our own twist on W.A. Matchplay, individual matches are shot in 3 arrow sets and the match has a maximum of 3 sets. To score each set the 3 arrows are added together and the archer with the highest score wins that set and are awarded 2 points for the win. If the scores are tied the set is tied and each archer receives one point.

The first archer to four points wins the match.

So a match could be completed in 3 sets which is straight sets win or could go to 5 sets before there is a winner. If there is no clear winner after 5 sets or the scores are tied after 5 sets the match is tied. To break the tie a single arrow shoot off is used. For a single arrow shoot off each archer shoots one arrow and the archer with the highest score or if the same score closest to the middle wins the match.

A basic handicap system will be used to allow recurve and compound archers to compete against each other.

All Archers shooting matchplay must be a member of an Archery Australia or 3DAAA affiliated club.

Monthly Club Field Shoot @ Archers of Warrnambool
Feb 6 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The club event that is scheduled to be shot will be a marked 24 target World Archery Field Round, to be shot on the John Goodwin Field Course.

Archers from other clubs are invited to attend this event with the outdoor range open from 11am for practice, before all competitors meet at the muster area adjacent to the John Goodwin Field Course at approximately 12:45pm. After a short safety briefing groups of two to four archers will be assigned a starting target and shooting will commence at 1pm sharp. Competitors will take a break for lunch once the first 12 targets have been shot, and will resume shooting 45 minutes later to complete the final 12 targets.

The course has been set up with the required Red, Blue and Yellow shooting pegs, but also includes a White peg to allow novice archers to experiences field shooting as well. The White peg is shot from between 10 metres and 20 metres, depending on the size of the target being shot at. Using this method, any archer who has qualified to shoot at 20 metres will be able to shoot the field course safely and with little risk of damaging or losing their arrows.

Archers of Warrnambool’s facilities include Ladies and Gents toilets and showers, we have a fully equipped kitchen and have powered and unpowered campsites. This enables visitors to the club to stay overnight so there is no need to rush home after shooting, they can relax and get to know the friendly members of AoW.

Field archery is the format of modern archery that takes place on a multi-target course (often compared to a golf course) set out over all kinds of terrain including fields, woods and forests.

International field archery includes three bow styles: recurve, compound and barebow. Field archery is included in the programme of the World Games for recurve and barebow athletes (along with compound target archery).

Field archery is not shot over flat land, but includes up and down and cross-slopes,  it can include unmarked distance targets and challenges of light, dark and shadow. These additional aspects require skills known as “fieldcraft”.
Athletes usually shoot at black and yellow coloured target faces set at distances of up to 60 metres. The targets have six concentric rings, four black and two gold. The inner gold ring scores six points, outer gold ring five points and black rings four to one point.
