Within the EFAA the team have ran a number of National events, Indoor and Outdoor.

Members of our organising team have been involved in the event teams for a number of other tournaments. These include being a games maker for the London Archery Olympic and Paralympic event, National series AGB Finals, European Archery Festival (Indoor), AGB Youth Festivals and a number of national level tournaments. In addition, members have taken lead roles in organising county and regional tournaments, a number of British University and College Sport Indoor and Outdoor events.

Venue

This sporting complex, located in Gillingham is a very accessible location in the south of England. The venue contains two large sports halls with a number of smaller rooms available for use. Hall 1 would provide room for 40 bosses, and accommodate both the Flint and Indoor round. Hall 2 would accommodate registration, trade stands and a 10 yard blank boss practice range. Hall two is also a potential venue for the opening and closing ceremony along with the awards and banquet. From this venue, archers are under an hour away from the centre of London via train.

Medway Park has a strong reputation as a quality venue for international, national and regional competitions.

The Modern Pentathlon World Cup in April 2010 was the first global sporting event to ever be hosted in Medway. Thousands of spectators enjoyed four days of competition as the world’s leading multi-sport athletes, including world and Olympic champions, did battle in the five events of fencing, swimming, horse riding, running and shooting.

Medway’s commitment to the promoting and staging the event, coupled with their wider legacy development of the sport, secured Medway the award for the Best Promoted Event of the Year, presented by the sport’s governing body the UIPM.

Such was the success of the event that Medway Park was chosen to host the 2011 Modern Pentathlon European Championships, an official Olympic qualification event.

The venue has also hosted a youth international basketball international test series, and is home to the national league basketball team, Medway Park Crusaders. Other events that took place in 2012 include a GB Wheelchair Rugby national finals weekend, a national basketball finals weekend and the British Transplant Games.
