Archery GB finals sees best archers in the UK compete at Wollaton Hall

Tickets are now on sale for the 2023 National Tour Finals, the pinnacle event of Archery GB’s competition calendar.

The Archery GB National Tour Finals bring together the best archers Britain has to offer to Wollaton Hall on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September. After six stages and 1,500 entries, six champions will emerge victorious.

Over the year’s stages, the archers have shot and accumulated points to rank them within the six categories:

  • Compound women
  • Compound men
  • Recurve women
  • Recurve men
  • Barebow women
  • Barebow men

The top eight people from the compound and recurve divisions and the top four from the barebow divisions will go head-to-head to see who will become the 2023 champions.

Last year, the finals did not disappoint, and we are sure to see the same world-class standard this time around. For the compound men, 21-year-old Adam Carpenter won for a third year in a row. Can he make it four?

World ranked number one compound woman Ella Gibson will be going into the finals with the hope of retaining her title from last year.

With World Archery bidding for compound to be added to the 2028 LA Games, come and see the best in the world in action in what could be the newest Olympic sport.

On the recurve side, new Olympic squad member and rising star Monty Orton has made his mark on the team and will be one to watch out for at the finals.

The recurve woman world number one Penny Healey is determined to defend her title from 2022, and teammate and world number two Bryony Pitman will also be ready to take that gold medal.

Last year was the first time that barebow had been introduced to the National Tour Finals.

This time, the top four men and top four women barebow archers will show what they’re made of. Wilco van Kleef is the current men’s champion, and Helen Brown will be ready to defend her title too.

Come September, the finals field will be set and the cameras rolling. Cheer on the athletes as they shoot for the year’s biggest UK archery title. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased from the link below.

There will be plenty of seats, an archery have-a-go and refreshments on sale.

Cllr Pavlos Kotsonis, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council, said:

“We are pleased to welcome the Archery GB National Tour Finals to Wollaton Hall for a second year running.

“As the home of Robin Hood, Nottingham is proud to host this major archery competition which will see the best archers in the UK go head-to-head.

“I wish all the competitors the best of luck and hope they enjoy competing at our stunning heritage venue.”
