2010 Sussex Championships

Sunday, July 11th, 2010


A surprising and unforecast drizzle started the proceedings but this soon cleared to a fine, cloudy but breezy day.

Peter Hammond shooting the Burntwood VI York broke the UK National record.

The Lady Champions in Recurve – Diane Billenness – and Compound – Jacki Beard – won convincingly.

In the Gents Recurve Gavin Sutherland took the honours but only 6 points separated the first 3. For the Gents Compound, Barebow and Longbow the respective Champions were Gary Kinghorn, Phil Reay and Ron Smith who all won comfortably.

For the Junior Ladies Recurve Bryony Pitman was the Champion with a score of 1216. Rebecca Davis won the Barebow with a score of 798. Zara Green on her Sussex debut aged 8 years scored a very creditable 598.

For the Junior Gents Compound Jamie Cole was crowned champion with a score of 1264 which amazed Ken Bearman. For the Junior Gents Recurve William Martin won with 1238 and Dominic Bodle won the Barebow with 670.
