The Handicap Challenge 2021

Are you up to the Challenge?!

We are delighted to announce that the Handicap Challenge will commence on Monday 29th March this year and will run for nine weeks, until Saturday 29th May. For the first week only, we are shooting from Monday to Saturday, and thereafter, slots to shoot will be available Tuesday to Saturday.

We are excited to welcome ISB Browning back on board for another year as headline sponsor – they will, as with past years, be providing Top Gun with a *shotgun of their choice. Gamebore and James Purdey & Sons Ltd are also kindly sponsoring the competition for another year. We thank all of our sponsors for their support in making this competition one of the very best yet!

This is an Open handicapped 100 target English Sporting Championship with the course built to a “par” score of 94ex-100. The wonderful thing about this competition is that its handicap system ensures a truly level playing field, giving anyone the opportunity to win!

Entry is priced at £55.00 if shooting one round or £50.00 if shooting with a friend or two rounds in one day. 

The top 30 CPSA handicapped scores and the top 20 RBSS handicapped scores from the nine weeks’ of competition (only one score to count) will all be invited as guests of RBSS, Browning, Gamebore and Purdey to the Open Final. A new layout will be established for the final and also be shot as a handicapped event on Wednesday 9th June 2021.

Please note we are a fibre wad only shooting ground. You are welcome to bring your own fibre wad cartridges or to purchase them from our onsite Gun Room. All Handicap entrants will receive a special rate on any cartridges and Pilla Performance Eyewear purchased.
