Competitive archery involves archers aiming arrows at a target.
Archery is an optional sport for both men and women in the Commonwealth Games that first appeared on the programme in Brisbane in 1982, with 11 countries entering athletes. It next appeared on the programme in Delhi in 2010 with both the compound and recurve disciplines offering medal opportunities for men and women in individual and team events.
You might need to know...
Archery has various competition forms, but the aim is always to shoot the arrow as close to the centre of the target as possible
For the scoring in archery you add up the number of points based on where your arrows hit the target. The highest score for a single arrow is 10 for hitting the inner gold ring and the least (for hitting the outer white ring) is one point. Arrows missing the target altogether do not score at all
