The new open entry international circuit replaces the Indoor Archery World Cup.


World Archery has announced the six events that are confirmed on the calendar of the 2018 Indoor Archery World Series, a refreshed international circuit running from November to February, featuring events in Luxembourg, Macau, Rome, Seoul, Nimes and Las Vegas.

The tournaments are open entry, meaning archers register themselves rather than participation only being as part of a national team. The new series encompasses three areas of competition.

  • An elite ranking based on accruing points according to final placing after eliminations, using each athlete’s best three results across the season. The 16 highest ranked archers in each division are invited to the Indoor Archery World Series Final, held after the last stage.

  • A brand-new amateur ranking based on 60-arrow qualification scores, using each athlete’s best three results across the season. Everyone who competes receives an amateur ranking.

  • A brand-new team ranking for pre-entered squads from clubs, national federations, brands and professional organisations. The combined elite ranking points of team members at each event give a team score, with the best three results across the season used in the team ranking.


Three levels of event make up the 2018 Indoor Archery World Series: 250, 500 and 1000. The level defines the maximum points available to archers in the elite and team rankings, minimum prize fund, and type of facilities and event production required.

World Archery Secretary General Tom Dielen said: “The Indoor Archery World Series continues to build on the success of the Indoor Archery World Cup. The idea is to establish a self-sustaining mass participation circuit built on successful individual tournaments, strengthening a disicipline enjoyed by a large majority of recreational archers while providing a professional indoor tour for elite athletes.”
