We would like to advise that our Shooting Manager, Steve Downes, has recently left the NSRA. The NSRA would like to thank Steve for his contribution over the past year and wish him well in all his future endeavours.

The Competitions Team of Sandra Smith and Lyndeen Calvert are busily preparing for BOAG on 26th and 27th February as well the rest of 2022. If you wish to contact them please do so by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we ask for your patience while waiting for a reply as they are handling a large number of enquiries and entries at the moment.

We will of course keep you informed of any new team members who are recruited in the weeks and months to come. Like you we’re looking forward to a busy and exciting Competitions Calendar in 2022.

NSRA 10m and 18m Crossbow League

Entires are still open for the following competitions:

  • Competition 700 — Sport Crossbow 10m
  • Competition 700a — Sport Crossbow 6yd
  • Competition 701 — Target Crossbow 18m
  • Competition 702 — Open Crossbow 18m
  • Competition 703 — Eric Dougliss Memorial Competition

They consist of three rounds shoot over January to March, shooting a NSRA 150 at 10m and an IAU300 at 18m. Please see the entry form for full details.

There is still time to enter. Late entries accepted.

2510BM89 Target

The 10 diagram 25yd target (2510BM89) was identified in 2018 as having incorrect scoring ring sizes, and the mistake was subsequently corrected.  However the target designation was not initially changed to the current designation of 2510BM89-18, so a small quantity of the correctly dimensioned targets were sold with the old designation.

Three years has now passed since the new targets with the correct designation were available, and therefore the targets that do not have the -18 suffix will no longer be accepted for NSRA competitions, effective immediately.

Competitions from Winter 2022

From Winter 2022, targets that do not have the -18 suffix will not be accepted for any NSRA Competitions.

This includes the targets that were checked and found to be within specification when errors were first detected. As well as the 2510BM89 these include: 

  • 1001C 1996 
  • 1003C BM89 
  • Air 4/89
  • 1510BM
  • PL8

Please ensure that your club members no longer submit these to our scorers as they will not be scored. 

If you still have any of the targets without the -18 suffix to the designation in your stocks, please ensure these are suitably marked so that your club members no longer submit these to our scorers as they will not be scored.

This in no way prevents them being used locally (some competition organisers may wish to allow them) or for training and recreational shooting.

The ELEY 2020/21 Last Shooting Date has now passed and competitors should have received the results which are downloadable here:

The challenge period will expire at 23:59 on 26th November 2021.  Challenges submitted after this time will not be accepted. Final Results will be published following review of any challenges.
