Wow! Wow! Wow! 18 competition categories, more than 470 archers and more than 360 matches in this Team Only Singapore National Games Archery Competition 2017, held at the Kallang Cricket Field from 29th – 30th July 2017.
It was fair weather over the entire 2 days of shooting and definitely a more comfortable setting than the 2016 event that was held at the Marina Bay Floating Platform. We were happy to see the archery fraternity bubbling with enthusiasm and with participation across all age groups.
Our Telok Blangah Archery Club fielded 4 Masters Barebow Teams, 1 Men’s Open Recurve Team and 1 Junior Boys Team. We are happy to report that Masters Barebow Teams made a clean sweep. They were ranked 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th at the end of Day 1 and went on to secure the top 4 (semi-finals) positions in the Teams’ Knockout Round on Day 2. Our young men did TBAC proud to win the Silver in the Men’s Open Recurve and our junior boys also gave a credible showing to be ranked 2nd in the ranking round, although all were new to competition.
Many thanks to our supporters who turned up to give cheers and even refreshments and special mention to Ham, who was our unofficial photographer.
We are looking forward to Singapore National Games 2018 and hope for an even larger turnout by the TBAC!
