Archers team up for 24-hour Arrowthon

Arrows were fired through the night at SportsAble at the weekend as bowmen and women took part in its annual 24-hour Arrowthon.

The event, which has been running for more than 20 years, kicked off at the charity's Braywick Road site in Maidenhead at noon on Saturday and finished at the same time on Sunday.

Members of the sports club for the disabled joined with representatives from other archery clubs and shot at 60cm targets during 16 rounds, each lasting 90 minutes.

The Arrowthon, this year held in memory of archery coach Ray Fields, attracted a wide variety of competitors with trophies awarded for top performers.

It was the first Arrowthon to be held since the club formerly known as WAMDSAD adopted its new name.
