The Wakefield International Postal Match

The Wakefield Match is an international smallbore prone rifle team competition, which is contested on a postal basis. Teams consist of 10 shooters, 2 reserves, and 2 officials; each shooter is required to fire 60 shots at 50m/yds. 

For 2021, due to COVID-19 once again impacting the competition season, athletes wishing to represent Great Britain in this prestigious competition were required to shoot a postal qualifier, which consisted of 3x40 shots at 50m/yds. 55 athletes entered the qualifier, which was shot earlier this summer, and the 12 highest scoring athletes were selected to form the Great Britain Team.

These 12 athletes (10 shooters + 2 shooting reserves) will shoot their 60 shots at 50m/yds on a single day of their choosing on their home range during the extended three week shooting period (20/09/21 – 11/10/21).
