Having monitored the situation regarding Coronavirus and the way things are rapidly progressing, I have looked at the things that we would need to start organising now for the next three major competitions and events. As this would involve considerable cost to the Association and with no guarantee that the events will go ahead, I have decided to cancel the following events:

“A hat-trick!”, beamed an ecstatic Minerva Singh on retaining the Women’s 10m Air Pistol title. “First 2013, then 2019 and now 2020. I really enjoyed myself today.”


A pair of junior rifle shooters who come from the same club and were born on exactly the same day have now got something else in common – they both won gold medals at this year’s BOAG Championships.


The BOAG 2020 event this year proved to be very successful with over 200 entries, air rifle, air pistol and Sporter air rifle, all at 10m.

Notice of Cancellation

It is with great regret that this Championship event is to be cancelled due to poor entry numbers.

An entry of only 23 is a very disappointing response from the Association's pistol shooting membership.

Given that the 2017 Championship was cancelled with only 73 entries it can be seen that a mere 23 entries this year means that the event could never be given "Championship" status.
