How is the

Round Robin seeded

and how is it

going to run?


For the Round Robin, flights to be determined based on Qualification Ranking Round score

Top 48 archers enter the Round Robin Match Play.

There will be 8 Flights of 6 archers each. Archers within their flight will shoot a match against all others in their flight for a total of 5 matches per flight.

  • We will be using the World Archery SET point system for all matches including compounds.

  • Match points will be  based on the World Archery "Set Points" system. Best of 5 Sets. Each set is 3 arrows.  Based on end score, the winner gets 2 pts, if tied each gets 1 pt. for that set.

  • First to 6 or more set points wins that match. If still tied after 5 sets, then one arrow closest to center arrow determines the winner of that match.

  • All archers regardless of age, gender or bow type will be seeded based on their  qualifying score. 

  • The top scorers will be in one flight, the middle  scorers in the second flight and the lower  scorers in the third flight, etc.  This approach should keep the match play competitive since similar shooters will be matched.

  • Remember that compound will be shooting the inner ten and recurve the outer ten, regardless of their opponent's bow type.

  • Round Robin match play will be shot on the  Vertical 3 Spot target so there is no top or bottom advantage.  Any shoot-offs will be into the center target spot.

  • The archer who wins the most matches in their flight is the Iron Archer winner of that flight.

  • After 5 matches, If 2 archers in the same flight are tied with number of match wins, then they will shoot an additional match against each other to determine that Iron Archer Flight winner.

  • After 5 matches, If 3 or more archers in the same flight are tied with match wins, then those archers will shoot a single arrow shoot-off to determine the 2 archers who will shoot the final match.
