DWAA vs Hampshire inter-county match for 2018 was held today as part of the Andover WA 1440. Teams of 4 Recurve and 4 Compound would be formed by selecting the best scoring archers in each discipline. Many archers were unable to cope with the horrible weather conditions with torrential rain and high winds with accompanying gusts of over 40 mph so by the end of the day, the number of competitors was much reduced from original entry of nearly 200. However, both DWAA and Hampshire still had enough brave and hardy archers to fill the Recurve and Compound teams!

The match resulted in a win for Hampshire by a score of 9683 to 9004.

The Hampshire Archers who formed the team were:

Rachel van Besouw          1075

Hannah Mitchell                1025

Julian Piper                       1172

James Towle                    1123

Vicky Loader                     1315

Ruth Watson                     1307
