The Indian Archery team for the 2023 Asian Games, Asian championships, world championships, and four archery World Cups underwent selection through national trials at SAI Sonipat. After the postponement of the Hangzhou Asian Games, fresh trials were conducted, giving Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das another chance. Unfortunately, Deepika Kumari missed the cut, but she can still compete for a spot in the Indian team for the Paris 2024 Olympics through open trials in January next year.

In the women’s recurve trials, Bhajan Kaur, Aditi Jaiswal, Ankita Bhakat, and Simranjeet Kaur secured their spots as the top four archers, while Komalika Bari and Ridhi Phor missed out on the top eight.

In the men’s recurve trials, Atanu Das returned to the Indian squad after Tokyo 2020 Olympics, finishing second behind Dhiraj Bommadevara. The team also includes Tarundeep Rai and Neeraj Chauhan, with Jayanta Talukdar finishing seventh. A surprising upset occurred in the men’s compound trials, as Abhishek Verma, a prominent archer, finished fifth, missing the top four positions for the team.
