World Archery’s new rule book will be released on 17 March, and will come into effect on 1 April 2014.
After the organisation’s 50th congress in Belek, Antalya, in 2013, several changes were decided upon that will enter the rule book in its new edition.
Those changes are:
- Changing the name of the FITA Round to the 1440 Round
- Using the set system in recurve team head-to-head matches
- Using the cumulative scoring system for indoor compound individual head-to-head matches
The updated rules will be available on the World Archery website after 17 March in the ‘constitution and rules’ section.
