New Delhi is going to host the National Ranking Archery Tournament from April 15 to 19, ahead of the first stage of the World Cup in Medellin, Colombia in the same month.
The decision was taken during the newly-elected Archery Association of India’s first executive committee meeting at the capital.
The newly-elected Archery Association of India president BVP Rao unveiled the annual calendar for the national and international events.
The cadet archers will be fielded by the AAI for the upcoming ISSF World Ranking Championship in Dhaka this month. The juniors, on the other hand, will compete in the Asia Cup in Bangkok next month.
The cadet team will be picked from the Khelo India Youth Games in Pune. The top archers from the ongoing Junior National Archery Championship will make the cut for the Bangkok-bound first Asia Cup from March 24-31.
According to Rao’s statement, the backlog of national meets last year, which were not held by the old regime, will be finished by April 12 with the Senior National-2018, Para National-2018 and Sub-Junior National-2018 in Cuttack, Rohtak and Chandigarh respectively.
