The archers in recurve, compound men and women who will participate in both the Tournaments of Nimes and Las Vegas 2010 will be able to qualify to this new world class event that will take place in Las Vegas on 20 February 2010. The Indoor World Archery Challenge 2010 will assemble the first eight archers per category in recurve, compound men and women; that is a total of 32 archers. They will qualify based on their performances at the Tournaments of Nimes and Las Vegas. A combined ranking will be established based on the results of the Tournament of Nimes and the results after the 60 arrows shot on Friday and Saturday at the Tournament of Las Vegas. This combined ranking will only include the archers taking part in bothTournaments (mandatory rule). The Indoor Challenge will be held in the form of quarterfinals, semifinals and finals matches shot on Saturday 20 February 2010 according to the FITA rules for international indoor archery (exception for arrows diameter).With a total value of more than 15,000 USD (on top of the usual awards offered by both tournaments), an attractive prize-money will be awarded across the four divisions. Among the archery community, there is some wish to have one day an Indoor World Cup opened to anyone. Thanks to the initiative of the Nimes and Las Vegas organisers, the Indoor World Archery Challenge 2010 is a great step forward!
