The Kent Indoor 4-Way tournament in Sittingbourne on November 25h saw our archers pitted against Essex, Kent and Surrey.  Two Portsmouth rounds defined the day with Compound and Recurve archers shooting the morning session and Barebow and Longbow in the afternoon. We were under some pressure following the morning session, lying in 3rd place, although, only 39 points off leaders, Kent.

The afternoon round saw our barebow and longbow archers excel, topping both categories; our longbow archers by 8 points but our barebow archers took full honours by a huge margin of 189 points!

Sussex walked away as overall tournament winners and winners in both longbow and barebow categories.

A fantastic effort by all.
