ARCHERY WA hosted the 2018 Aus­tralian Open, with male and fe­male archers from around Aus­tralia and Malaysia com­pet­ing in the three-day event from March 23 to 25.

A qual­i­fy­ing rank­ing event last Fri­day which de­ter­mined who the archers would shoot against over the fol­low­ing cou­ple of days in an elim­i­na­tion match play for both teams and in­di­vid­u­als.

Re­curve Olympic archers Tay­lor Worth, Ryan Ty­ack and Alec Potts took part, while WA archers in­cluded fa­ther and son duo Danie and Danie-Louis (15) Oosthuizen from the Benara Bow­men Archery Club, and Alan Pound from White­man Park Archers.

Danie-Louis shot in the men’s open di­vi­sion so he could step up to the line with his fa­ther.

The teenager will head to Vic­to­ria in April to rep­re­sent WA at the 40th Archery Youth Na­tional Cham­pi­onships with fel­low Benara archers and Lands­dale sib­lings Mea­gan (15) and Har­ri­son (13) Locke.
