The British University & Colleges Sport Championships at Telford

The BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) Indoor Archery Championships was held this year at the Telford International Centre making it the biggest University Championships in history with 523 archers competing.

This year saw Edinburgh University lose it's decade long hold on the Team Championships as Nottingham University beat them winning the title for the first time, shooting a championship record in the process. The team of four recurves shot Portsmouth rounds and scored 2298 in total, with the team of Andrew Randall, George Harding, Chris Fry and Charlie Birch. Andrew Randall also won the Gents Recurve title and set a championship record of 591 out of 600. Ladies Recurve was won by first year Hannah Beasley-Suffolk from Imperial College London with a score of 573. It was encouraging to see the leap being made between elite junior and elite university level archery from archers such as Hannah, who have previously been members of the GB junior squad, and Zoe Coggins, who won the ladies compound event with a new record of 587.

The tournament also incorporates a novice event for students who have started shooting in the current academic year. This gives the inexperienced archers the opportunity to compete against people of the same level and encourages many people into the sport. This year the novice team trophy was won by Edinburgh. The gents recurve novice was won by Allan West from Birmingham University with a score of 540 and the ladies recurve was won by Stephanie Clason from Edinburgh 533, both extremely good scores for someone who has only been shooting five months.

The tournament was hosted by the University of Aberystwyth Archery Club and a group of Alumni from other Universities who assisted in the running of the shoot. Being the first time the event has been held at Telford meant much work had to be done to ensure the proper running but this did not phase the organising committee and the event ran smoothly with many comments from competitors of how well the shoot was run.

Guest of honour for the event was five time Olympian Alison Williamson, who is no stranger to BUCS as she still holds the ladies recurve record. She awarded many medals to her fellow elite level archers such as Tapani Kalmaru who won the gents compound and Naomi Jones who came third in the ladies compound category.

The BUCS championships are usually a friendly event with a good atmosphere and much banter between competitors. This year was no exception, the music and happy demeanour of the judges made this a very enjoyable shoot. The Universities will be meeting up again in June for the BUCS Outdoor Championship held at Lilleshall.
