Said Ted Burnham, the chairman of English Archery Federation: "This initiative follows the success of archery at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games.
"Indeed, so successful was it, that World Archery has set up a working party to promote archery as a core sport in future Games. Members of the working party are drawn from Africa, Oceania, Europe, India and the Americas."
Other Commonwealth Archery Regional Tournaments are planned in 2012 in Africa and Oceania. It is hoped that these initiatives will lead to a Commonwealth Archery Championship in 2013.
