Don't forget entries are open for this year's British 50-metre championship meeting 3rd June - 5th June 2022 at Lord Roberts Centre.

Please see below information on upcoming coaching courses at NSRA Aldersley: 

 

Target Sprint has grown domestically and internationally such that it sits alongside the other ISSF disciplines of Rifle, Pistol, and Shotgun.  Accordingly, British Shooting is launching a Target Sprint Development Pathway to align with these other disciplines.

The Development Pathway sessions are to be held at the National Shooting Centre, - Lord Roberts Centre, Queens Road, Bisley, Brookwood, Woking, GU24 0NP. 

The aim of the Development Pathway is to facilitate athlete progression in the ISSF discipline of Target Sprint in accordance with the overriding objective of the British Shooting ACF document at ‘Development level’, across all ISSF disciplines.

Here are some pictures from a successful first day of Eley batch testing at the Lord Roberts Centre.

At the EGM held on 30th April 2022, amendments to the Articles of Association were considered and approved unanimously. The new Articles came into immediate effect and can be seen HERE.

The purpose of the amendments were to enable the Association to make greater use of internet technology in two areas. The first group of amendments allow official notices to be issued by electronic means, such as email or posting on the website, in addition to the existing methods, such as publication in On Target.

The second group of amendments allow General Meetings to be held in one of three ways:

  1. As a physical meeting, where all participants are present at a specific venue at the same time;
  2. As a virtual meeting, where all participants take part via an electronic platform; or
  3. As a hybrid meeting, where participants can choose whether they take part via an electronic platform or are personally present at the meeting venue.

In accordance with the 2022 Great Britain Dewar Team Selection Policy, the following athletes are, as a result of their outstanding shooting in recent years, automatically invited to participate in the 2022 Great Britain Dewar Team Shoulder-to-Shoulder Trial (the Trial).

The Trial is being held at Appleton Rifle Club in Cheshire on Saturday, 25th June 2022. Further invitations will follow on conclusion of the 2022 Great Britain Dewar Team Postal Trial.

As a result of their success throughout the various stages of the 2022 Great Britain Pershing Team Trial, the following athletes have been selected to form the 2022 Great Britain Pershing Squad.

This squad will travel to the USA in July 2022 to compete in the NRA of America’s National Matches at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. The 12 athletes who will form the 2022 Great Britain Pershing Team and compete against the USA will be selected from the final stage of the the trial, the ‘Metallic Sights’ Aggregate competition at the 2022 National Matches.
