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:

  • (302) 50m Individual Any Sights Competition
  • (304) 100 Yards Individual Any Sights Competition
  • (392) 50m Individual Benchrest Any Sights Competition
  • (395) 100 Yards Individual Benchrest Any Sights Competition

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  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:

We would like to advise all shooters the “shoot by date” has been further extended until late Summer, the exact details of which will be published by Friday 3 July. In doing so we are taking into account the majority of clubs and ranges are still closed and therefore wish to relieve you of any individual pressure to meet a deadline of this weekend. Please keep checking the website and social media for further updates.

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.
