Date: Saturday, August 18th to Sunday, August 19th, 2018
Address: The Trusts Arena, 65-67 Central Park Drive, Henderson, Auckland

The format of this year’s National Indoor Championships will encompass both target and field archery rounds, so we encourage archers from each discipline to enter and enjoy trying a new round. The tournament has been structured to include field archers in the World Archery (WA) round, and to include target archers in the International Field Archery Association (IFAA) Standard Indoor round.
The Saturday session includes both an IFAA Standard Indoor round (60 arrows) and a WA 18m round (60 arrows). Archers will shoot both rounds, and the combined result from these two rounds will determine the ranking for Matchplay on the Sunday. The Matchplay results will determine the Indoor Target Championship and medals. The IFAA round has been included in order to enable this event to be used as pre-qualification for both ANZ and IFAA archers for the IFAA World Indoor Championships in April 2019 in Wellington, NZ. It is hoped ALL archers will shoot ALL rounds to help make this event a success.Remember to join NZFAA before this event if you want to use this event as a qualification round.
The tournament venue is in Henderson, West Auckland. Some accommodation is available in the area. We advise you to check not only hotels but also Airbnb or similar sharing sites. Many Auckland-area archers are willing to host visitors for an evening or two. The Auckland District Archery Association website lists area clubs with contact information. The closest commercial hotel is the Quality Hotel Lincoln Green, which is supporting the tournament.
Full event and registration details will be on the Archery NZ website in the next couple of days – so start your planning!
