The Indoor World Series is an annual circuit of the greatest indoor archery events around the globe, featuring the world’s very best 18-meter shooters.
Usually consisting of numerous stages held from October to February, this year’s circuit was made partially remote and reduced to its founding tournaments in Nimes, France and Las Vegas, USA due to ongoing travel difficulties caused by the pandemic.
The first of this double-header took place this weekend at the Parc des Expos in Nimes, with nearly 700 archers from nearly 30 countries participating.
Among the winners was one of the archers to take the Vegas Shoot’s $10K-a-Day prize in 2020, Sarah Prieels. Jean Philippe Boulch, Lisa Barbelin and Felix Wieser also took individual titles in France.
Two-time Vegas Shoot Champion Sergio Pagni of Italy was among the medalists.
Archers finishing in the top placings in Nimes have collected elite ranking points towards qualifying for the Indoor Archery World Series Finals, which are held on Saturday night at The Vegas Shoot.
The requirement for shooters to have competed in at least two series tournaments to qualify has been removed this season – so anyone competing in the Vegas championship categories can still book a ticket.
The top 16 archers in each category – compound men, compound women, recurve men and recurve women – will shoot for the titles, now the highest indoor accolade awarded by World Archery.
Find out who will be crowned the new Indoor Archery World Series Champions from 8pm on Saturday, February 5, 2022 in the championship arena at the South Point and – if you’re on site – join us from 7pm for Easton’s 100-Year Celebration and the annual Archers’ Appreciation Dinner, including a performance from Orissa Kelly.
