REVISED NSRA GUIDANCE NOTES to be published 10:00 Thursday 16th July
While our guidance notes are still being finalised please use the following link to refer to Government Guidance published on 9th & 10th July 2020. This followed Oliver Dowden's announcement regarding the reopening of Indoor Sports Facilities on 25 July. This is exactly the same advice we are following and hopefully provides you with a helpful way forward as you prepare to reopen. Our own notes will be completed and published shortly.
Indoor Sports Facilities can reopen in England from 25 July. The NSRA will hold a virtual Board Meeting tomorrow, Friday 10 July to consider the latest Government guidelines and advice with a view to amending our guidelines where appropriate. Further details will be published ASAP.
Yesterday an exciting new fund was launched which may well be of interest to all affiliated Clubs in Wales. We will keep everyone updated with details of any new funding opportunities we discover across the UK
Sadly in March the Covid-19 Lockdown necessitated the NSRA to close our offices and furlough the Competitions Team. The NSRA offices are now operating albeit with a skeleton team. This has impacted the early part of our Summer 2020 Postal Season and it is with sadness we announce all Summer 2020 Team and Individual Leagues are hereby cancelled.
Summer 2020 Individual Competitions are also cancelled with the exception of the following:
Please note entries close on Wednesday 15th July.

The end of the Winter 19/20 Postal Competitions has been hugely impacted by Covid-19 with many Clubs closing their doors prior to the last day for shooting in leagues and competitions, plus the NSRA Competitions Team were furloughed on 20 March.
All remaining Winter 19/20 Postal Competitions have an extended shoot by date of 31 August 2020. No further extensions or reshoots will be permitted and cards must be received by the scorers no later than 5 September.
NB The shoot by date (31 August) does not apply to the ELEY Competition or County Competitions such as the County Cup or BSA Cup.
We are making every effort to upload Winter 19/20 Postal Competitions results onto the NSRA website at https://www.nsra.co.uk/index.php/results/postal-winter-19-20 Please check regularly for updates as we are unable to email results at the present time. If you do not see results posted for a particular competition then either teams still require the extension until the end of August, or the results are still to be uploaded.
Following lengthy discussions we are pleased to set out our plans for a successful completion to this year’s Eley Postal Competition. The consequences of Covid-19 have resulted in an extensive reassessment as we would normally be at the Finals stage by now. Our priority is to continue and complete the Competition in an appropriate format so with that in mind here are the changes we would like to notify you.
Since our closure on 17 March our focus has been on maintaining the daily operation of the NSRA with a skeleton staff, most of whom have been working remotely. We would like to thank those of you who have been waiting for a Competition Entry Refund for your patience and understanding during this time.
We are pleased to confirm the simple process we are launching today to enable you to apply for a refund which is as follows:
