Crossbow and archery

Rugby Sport for the Disabled archers and crossbow shooters came away with prizes of Christmas Puddings at the annual 18m ‘Pud Shoot’ and some won raffle prizes too.

This festive event, which attracted over 30 competitors, was held at the Wolverhampton Association for the Disabled Sports club.

Malcolm expressed his delight at beating Graeme, gaining first place and winning a Christmas pudding.

Archer Kevin Rumble said: “I’ve had a great shoot with my new bow. I always enjoy this competition”. Hazel added: “It’s great to get here – the last two years I’ve been ill”.

The results out of 600 were:

Assisted Tournament Crossbow: Iris Bingham: 1st 600 with 56 ring tens

Assisted Sporting Gents Crossbow: Malcolm Scott: 1st 596 with 48 ring tens.

Graeme Mooney: 2nd 591 with 37 ring tens.

Assisted Sporting Ladies Crossbow: Hazel Duckett: 1st 550 with 18 ring tens

Archery: Kevin Rumble: 1st 301; Michael Aldous: 2nd 50.

n Most Saturday mornings at the Ken Marriott Leisure Centre, apart from the shooting, there are many sports for disabled people including table tennis, New Age Kurling, boccia, short mat bowls, board games, darts, pool, swimming, othello, bagatelle and dominoes.

In January they hope to hold our annual Superstars event. They are always in need of helpers too.

RSDA members wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
