The recurve and compound squads have selected teams for the upcoming Hyundai Archery World Cup Stage, starting in Antalya next week.
The 2022 selected team for the Hyundai Archery World Cup are here, both for recurve and compound.
The recurve team trials took place in a week long selection process at Lilleshall earlier this month. Alex Wise and James Woodgate were preselected due to hitting set scores within the selection process (see more here) last year. Going into Antalya, the four recurves making up the team will be cometing for a spot on the European team, with the top three competing later in the season.

The women are heading into the second stage of the selection shoot, like the men.

Tom Duggan, Performance Director, explained, "We're looking forward to Antalya as part of our selection process for the Europeans later this year. We've been going through some changes over the winter with a view to how we position ourselves for the future, so the event will be good opportunity to see where we are at at this stage."
The compound team was selected from their top three scores from 2021 shot at World Record Status shoots. This is the team that has been selected for the Antalya Hyundai Archery World Cup Stage, as the Compound team is self-funded, the team will change for most international events.
Jon Nott, Compound Programme Manager, said, "It is excellent that the Hyundai Archery World Cup season is back to normal for 2022 and it's great to be sending such a talented team of shooters to pariticpate in the first stage, and we hope to see some promising results."
