Entry opens for first remote stage of 2021 Indoor Archery World Series

26 October 2020
Lausanne, Switzerland
Compete from your home, club or local shop – or at a registered tournament.

Updated on 2 November 2020 following a change in the schedule of official live events.

Archers worldwide can now register for a spot in the first remote stage of the upcoming Indoor Archery World Series, which will take place on 21-22 November 2020.

Entry is completely free and available through OpenWAREOS until midnight CET on 15 November.

Participants must select a timezone in which to compete – Americas (UTC+5), Europe and Africa (UTC+1) or Asia and Oceania (UTC+8) – and must submit their score between 08h00 on Saturday 21 November and 20h00 on Sunday 22 November in that timezone. 

Archers planning to compete at a world record status tournament can select it during the registration process. This removes the requirement to submit photos of the official scoresheet and any used target faces.

Registration for subsequent remote stages of the 2021 Indoor Archery World Series will be opened after completion of the previous event.

This year’s international indoor circuit is combining smaller live events with remote competitions. Anyone around the world can compete by shooting a 60-arrow 18-metre round to World Archery rules – indoors or outdoors – at a local event, club or shop, or even at home, provided it’s safe to do so.

Archers must enter in advance and submit their scores through the Ianseo Scorekeeper application (available for Android and iOS).

(Anybody competing at the event in Lausanne on 19-20 December will have their score automatically submitted to the open ranking and do not need to also score via the mobile application.)

The series has six competition categories: recurve men, recurve women, compound men, compound women, barebow men and barebow women.

Archers will be ranked on their best three scores over the season. Everyone who is ranked will receive a certificate with their final position at the end of the circuit.
