2019 Youth Festival - Mixed Team Event
Archery England has now entered WA Junior Teams (one compound and one recurve) for the Youth Festival Mixed Team event.
The team members for WA Junior Recurve are Jacob Reid and Hannah Evans.
The Compound team members are Lewis Haslam and Jenny Bryan.
The rationale behind their selection is explained below.
The Youth Commonwealth Championships has been prepared to reflect the Youth (Olympic and Commonwealth) International Format and the AGB Tournament Organiser introduced the 'Mixed Team event' to be held on the Tuesday of the Youth Festival. Junior mixed teams and cub teams were also possible but it was only the cadet teams to be selected for the (Euronations)Commonwealth Europe Championships
The AGB Tournament Organiser, on seeing the good response for Junior teams (up to the age of 20), has asked if the English Archery Federation could also enter a Junior mixed recurve and a Junior mixed compound team. (The next WA age group up). The Youth Festival will also host a cub pairs team event - Archery England does not select archers for this age category due to the policies on safeguarding.
In the limited time available to select a Junior Mixed Team for both Recurve & Compound the following proposal has been agreed by the Archery England Executive for this year only.
As no WA junior age scores were requested this year and WA recurve Juniors shoot 70m instead of 60m, the selection committee looked at scores submitted last year. There were some recurves who were in the team last year but were too old to apply for the cadet team this year and are now WA Juniors shooting 70m. The selection committee made their selection in line with EAF guidelines.
This selection process was not possible for the Compound team as last year there were no submissions available from compound archers who are now of WA Junior age .The selection committee has proposed that this year's compound cadet reserves be given the opportunity to be in the Junior team. As cadet and Junior compounds both shoot 50m there is not a problem of having to shoot a further distance as was the case with the recurve archers.

2022 Commonwealth Games - Birmingham
It is with great disappointment I have to report that our bid to have Archery included as an optional sport, in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, was rejected. It is a regret and a frustration to have to convey this, as I know our bid was as strong and as comprehensive as it could have been; firmly and honestly addressing the Commonwealth Games Federation’s and the Birmingham Games Organisation’s, conditions and prerequisites. We convened the best Bid and Presentation teams, including Tom Dielen from World Archery, Hilda Gibson from Commonwealth Games England, Naomi Folkard, our current most outstanding English Archer and Neil Armitage from AGB, and I firmly believe it was not for lack of detail, focus or commitment that the bid failed. The bid was thorough and vibrant, and explained our sport’s commitment to diversity, inclusivity and legacy; along with the far reach that Archery has across the Commonwealth, its participation and engagement, the funding to stage and realise, and the benefits to Birmingham.
Despite the failure to be selected, I remain very proud of our bid demonstrating that we embarked upon and delivered the very best proposal we could.
A lot of work, meetings, conference calls and emails were undertaken during the better part of a year to draw the bid together and I would like to formally thank all those involved. My special thanks, however, go to Hilda Gibson, for without her experience and deep knowledge of the sport, along with her ambassadorial wisdom and professionalism, the bid would have been very much the lesser.
Finally, and notwithstanding my low mood at the outcome of the decision, I propose Archery’s very best wishes to all the sports selected and hope that they, and Birmingham, do England proud.

English Archery Federation moves forward with Archery England
At the EAF AGM held Saturday 24th November 2018, it was unanimously agreed and voted that the EAF market and promote the Federation under the term ‘Archery England’.
Chairman Marc Grady said, “I’m proud to announce that as we progress our bid for the inclusion of Archery into the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the EAF is better served when dealing with government, local authority agencies and potential sponsors, in stating at the outset who we are and what we do. Archery England clearly does this.”
He went on to state, “No one should be concerned that we are losing the prestige and heritage that the EAF has built over the past four decades. The EAF still exists; we remain the federation of the English Regions, proudly wearing our familiar garter badge, it is simply that future communications and marketing will be under the banner of Archery England.”
English archers can look forward to being selected to shoot for Archery England, new clothing designs, a new web page and a range of promotional and marketing paraphernalia in the months to come.
