Handicap Challenge

The Royal Berkshire Shooting School’s (RBSS) Handicap Challenge is back for its 16th year with a brand new title sponsor – media brand Time Inc. has got behind the hugely popular clay shooting competition with its shooting titles –Sporting Gun, Shooting Times and Shooting Gazette.

Competitors will be able to shoot for their preferred magazine and as always there is a superb range prizes on offer, including a Browning Heritage shotgun, a Laporte trap, Gamebore cartridges, Taittinger champagne and cash prizes. This year, the side-by-side category has been reinstated, the winner of which will receive an overnight stay at Luton Hoo House and a Landrover off-road driving day courtesy of Stratstone.

The Handicap Challenge is renowned for its unique handicapping system, which gives average club shooters the chance to compete on a par with high-level competition shots and have a genuine chance of winning, with an entry fee of just £49.

The competition starts on Thursday 2 February and takes place over 11 weeks. The culmination of the Handicap Challenge will see 60 finalists meet at RBSS for the final on Tuesday 2 May, where the top 40 CPSA handicapped scores and the top 20 RBSS handicapped scores will be invited to go head to head over a new 100 target layout for the title.

Dylan Williams, Managing Director of RBSS commented: “We are extremely proud, in our 25th anniversary year and the 16th anniversary of this event, to have our industry’s three most prominent clay shooting magazines come on board with this initiative. I would like to take this opportunity to thank David Stapley at Browning, all at Gamebore, along with all of the other sponsors, as it is their support that ensures that we can host such an event and provide such an entertaining competition for clay shooters of all levels. This ensures great fun and literally the chance for anyone to win.”
