A small group of dedicated archers competed in the Namibian National Field Archery Championships last weekend (29-30 August). The competition took place in very windy conditions at the Heja Lodge range of the Windhoek Field Archery Club. Field and Animal rounds took place on Saturday with the Hunter round on Sunday being held under similar conditions.

The newly created class for Young Adults was represented for the first time. This category is for 17 and 18 year olds and was created by the International Field Archery Association (IFAA) in response to the perceived issue of youngsters in this age bracket dropping out of the sport due to the significant jump between the Junior and Adult classes. Young Adults shoot the same distances as the adults, but only compete amongst themselves.

Trophaendienste Taxidermy sponsored the prize money for each category. The Archery Association of Namibia and Windhoek Field Archery would like to thank them for their support.

Results were as follows:

Liezl Schoeman in AFFU class 1st place with total score 1516 with N$400 prize money

Frank Reddig in AMBU(R) class 1st place with total score 744 with N$400 prize money

The SKW Archery Club shoot was hosted this past weekend with 30 Archers from Windhoek and Tsumeb participating.

Ben van Wyk (Tsumeb Archery Club) showed that he is a force to be reckoned with, clinching first place over one of Namibia’s top archers, Louw Nel (SKW). Donavan Langenhoven, a newcomer to the archery circuit, showed good form as he led the first round by a single point. However, the more experienced Van Wyk and Nel showed why they are among Namibia’s top archers clinching 1st and 2nd place respectively.

Xander Reddig (Tsumeb Archery Club) dominated the Recurve division, shooting a personal best score of 662/720 and taking 1st place over Adrian Grobler (SKW). Reddig will be competing in the Commonwealth Games in September hosted by Samoa. 

The shoot also hosted a beginner class in Recurve and Compound, showing a lot of potential amongst the youngsters.

Namibia will also be sending a team to the Zimbabwean Nationals on 12-13 September 2015, all in preparation for the FAA Olympic Qualifier and Continental Championship that will be hosted by the Archery Association Namibia in Windhoek at the end of January 2016.
