In 2019 ANSW will be running a Grand Prix Series where archers of all Age Divisions can compete in eight registered tournaments. Following the 2018 series it was deemed that more Match Play was required to provide NSW archers with greater experience at shooting Elimination MPlay.
Given that the high profile National, and most World Archery International events are run under MPlay conditions, it is important that we offer our state archers an event that will prepare our archers for these National and International competitions.
Sunday’s being – 10th Feb, 24th Mar, 12th May, 23rd June, 14th July, 11th Aug, 22nd Sep, 13th Oct.

- Archers will shoot the same distance and face for which they shot their ranking round EXCEPT where a Cub or Intermediate (Recurve or compound) archer is deemed by the NSW Coaching Coordinator to be of suitable ability then they will be required to shoot the same distance (as ranking round) but on an 80cm face. Where an elite Intermediate compound archer is participating, they will be required to shoot both the ranking round and elimination MPlay as a WA50/720. Where a veteran or veteran+ archer is deemed capable by the Coaching Coordinator they may be required to shoot the following - Compound 40m on an 80cm face and Recurve 60m on a 122cm face.
- There will be two timed ends of practice prior to the commencement of Match Play.
- The field will be arranged in such a way to facilitate smooth running of the elimination matches. This will not include the moving of targets, so competitors are next to each other – the archers will be required to walk between the two targets when competitors are required to shoot different distances.
