British Shooting are delighted to announce our domestic competition calendar for 2020.
The 2020 competition programme includes the National Series and Super League, both of which will come to a climax at the beginning of August, at the iconic shooting venue of Bisley. The National Series Final and British Championships will take place in the heart of the Tokyo Olympic programme and will be part of a weekend to celebrate our shooting sport for all.
The National Series events include a Schools, Cadets and Scout Championships as well as regional events all designed to engage a wide audience, nationwide into our fun accessible sport for all. These races will be conducted similar to recent years at different locations and settings around the country and over the larger 49.5mm targets and the standard 400m distance. Male and female athletes in the Youth, Junior, Senior and 46yrs+ categories at all the events, will have the opportunity to qualify for the National Series Final.
The Super League races will be run to ISSF rules and athletes’ times from these will be included on the GB Ranking List and Super League Leader Board 2020.
The Super League is a series where athletes can accumulate points throughout the season at each event according to their category/gender placing. The Super League Champion 2020 will be crowned following the British Championships where double points are available.
GB Team Opportunity
Following the success of the GB Team at the ISSF World Tour Target Sprint German Open, British Shooting are reviewing GB Team opportunities for 2020. This includes gathering feedback from the 2019 GB Team athletes & parents and the international opportunities available for 2020.
More information and what opportunity(s) will be available will be announced no later than early January 2020. In the meantime, to aid your planning and preparations for the new season, the selection process for GB Team opportunity(s) will be conducted by the GB Selection Panel an estimated 8-weeks in advance of the opportunity(s) available. The GB Ranking List and list of athletes who have expressed their interest to compete at specific event(s) are two forms of important information used by the Selection Panel. Results from Super League races and other recognised competitions domestically and internationally run to ISSF rules and standards will populate the GB Ranking List.
