Jamshedpur is all set to host the 40th senior archery nationals (recurve and compound) for both men and women from Saturday.
The 10-day competition will be organized at the Tata Archery Academy as part of celebrations for the establishment's 25th anniversary.
Over 950 archers and team officials from 40 states and sports control/promotion boards have registered for the event.
The senior nationals will be conducted in three phases starting with an Indian round (bamboo round) event on October 2-3 followed by a compound event on October 5-6 and recurve (Olympic) event on October 8-9, Archery Association of India (AAI) said.
