2021 is looking to be another year of uncertainty. Unfortunately, this means it is not possible currently to confirm the competitions calendar for the year ahead. We are currently in the planning processes for the majority of the usual competitions; however as you will appreciate, the likelihood of them proceeding depends on many factors outside of our control. Where possible, we will be as flexible and reasonable as we can to try and enable competitions to take place. We also are aware that Covid19 could, in some scenarios, prove to be an insurmountable hurdle.
Following the latest Lockdown in England, effective from 5 November, we are extending the last day for shooting the NSRA/Eley 2020 Postal Final to Thursday 31 December 2020. This applies to all Finalists across all disciplines and classes throughout the UK. All cards will need to be returned to Scorers no later than Wednesday 7 January 2021.
When the NSRA offices reopen we will as a matter of course reassess these dates should any further countrywide restrictions be mandated by Government.

The Home Counties Coordinating Committee are running the Browne-Martin Competition for clubs in the Home Counties again. Due to the Covid 19 problems there will not be a shoulder to shoulder final at Lord Roberts Centre this coming year.
Team numbers have been reduced to three.
Below are the revised conditions and entry form. We look forward to your club competing in this competition.
The NSRA Rifle Committee are delighted to announce that, as a result of their outstanding scores achieved in the Postal Trials held earlier this year, the following athletes have earned a spot on the Team. We would like to thank everyone who entered the Postal Trials for their efforts. A full list of results can be found here:
It was fantastic to see such a large entry. Thanks also goes to RWS who have very kindly sponsored the 2020 International Matches, their support has been vital in helping to ensure these important Matches have been able to take place in what is a very challenging year. Finally, the Captain and Adjutants of the Wakefield and Drew Teams would like to thank the scorers for volunteering to mark all of the Trial cards.
The NSRA Competitions Department have taken the opportunity presented by Lockdown to catch up on producing the National Rankings documents (also known as Results Supplements). The Competitions Team are very grateful to volunteers who have generously given their time to help make this possible.
National Rankings for the Summer 2019, Winter 18/19 and Summer 2018 Postal Competition Seasons are now available to download and view from the NSRA Website -> Results -> Previous Results -> National Rankings
Upon completion of the Winter 19/20 Postal Competition Season the National Rankings document will be completed as soon as possible.
Along with our other Winter Competition Entry Forms we are pleased to confirm the Eley is now available online.
Our priority is to try and make up for lost time resulting from the impact of Covid-19. We are striving to offer as many competitive opportunities as possible but of course with a significant number of clubs still closed we can’t guarantee the entry and shoot by deadlines will be to everyone’s liking. We are doing our best and encourage as many shooters as possible to enter. The last thing we want to do is to have cancel any competition as a consequence of low entries and lack of financial viability. We greatly appreciate your support and week by week we are gradually increasing our capability to offer Competitions to our members and supporters.
Your Club, County or Individual Entry Forms for the Winter 20/21 Season. Entries close Wednesday 23rd September and the Eley Entry Form will follow shortly.
We are taking a greener approach so why not use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to complete the PDF entry form (tick boxes, averages and signature), then email your completed electronic form to:
and call 01483 485540 to pay by Debit or Credit Card (Monday to Wednesday).
If you require a printed version of the Entry Forms please email or call and we will post one to you (no printed copies will be distributed with On Target magazine).
Disclaimer: We strive to provide a full calendar of Winter Postal Competitions but ask for your patience and understanding while we continue to operate with a small team. Insufficient entries to leagues and competitions may result in cancellation for the Winter 20/21 season so please get entering TODAY.
Following the closure of entries last Friday, 14th August we are delighted to confirm the numbers for each competition.
We are also delighted to announce RWS are kindly sponsoring the 2020 International Matches and their support has been instrumental in offering free entry for all matches. The partnership between RWS and the NSRA has enabled these important competitions to continue and marks one of our first important steps as we emerge from the restrictions Covid-19 has placed upon us.
Good luck to all competitors and thank you once again RWS.
In recent weeks we have been publishing results on the website instead of emailing them to County Captains. The reason for this is purely and simply a matter of limited resources and the fact that other than Sandra Smith, Competitions Manager, the rest of the Competitions Team is furloughed.
In light of this and to try and assist all concerned the date for Challenges will be moved back to 31 August. Please can you help us by returning your results as quickly as possible in order we can upload them on to the website at the earliest opportunity. We of course will appreciate the co-operation and understanding of all Shooters as we endeavour to deliver the best service we can in exceptionally difficult circumstances.
COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on this Summer’s competition schedule so after adopting an innovative approach with our shooting friends around the world the NSRA are pleased to confirm some of our historic and important International Rifle Matches will still be shot.
As we strive to understand what the “new normal” actually means by applying common understanding and pragmatism sensible solutions have been found which enable us to move forward.
So the teams will be selected from a postal trial to be shot on home ranges with FREE ENTRY. Please follow the links below to find the relevant entry forms.
Sadly in March the Covid-19 Lockdown necessitated the NSRA to close our offices and furlough the Competitions Team. The NSRA offices are now operating albeit with a skeleton team. This has impacted the early part of our Summer 2020 Postal Season and it is with sadness we announce all Summer 2020 Team and Individual Leagues are hereby cancelled.
Summer 2020 Individual Competitions are also cancelled with the exception of the following:
Please note entries close on Wednesday 15th July.
