WA Indoor Archery World Cup Marrakesh


Adeel goes to Marrakesh to shoot a round in the World Archery World Cup and does us proud!!!

A huge Congratulations from all of us Adeel. Even after his practice was hampered by a car accident running up to the event Adeel was the 4th highest British archer in the qualifying rounds. Having qualified for the knock out stages it was Adeel’s bad luck to be drawn against the top Italian archer Matteo Fissore who was eventually the runner up in the competition.

Well done Adeel we are all very proud of you,
