Neil Bridgewater and David Wayman two of Hinxworth Archery Club’s top compound archers were invited to take part in the U.K. Masters Championships at Lilleshall National Sports Centre near Telford over the weekend of the 6th/7th June.
140 of the U.K.’s highest ranked archers were chosen to compete in what is regarded as Britain’s premier Archery Event including our own Neil Bridgewater the reigning 2014 compound champion and clubmate David Wayman. The compound category for men consisted of the top 35 gentlemen compound archers in the U.K.
At the end of the first day Neil led the field in top spot eliminating all of his opponents in the head to head. David finished in a very accomplished 6th place making Hinxworth A.C. the only club with both members in the top 10.
The final on Sunday 7th June was the Individual Championship with all participants shooting 36 arrows at each distance 90m/70m/50m and 30m a total of 144 arrows each. Neil again emerged as the clear winner and double gold medallist. David finished with a respectable 11th place overall in his very first U.K. Masters tournament.
Well done Gentlemen.
