The NSRA is delighted to support this exciting initiative and is looking forward to working closely with British Shooting in making it a great success. NSRA Board Member, Matt Guille, will be representing us on forthcoming webinars so we encourage any interested Shooters and Coaches to register as soon as possible.
In recent weeks we have been publishing results on the website instead of emailing them to County Captains. The reason for this is purely and simply a matter of limited resources and the fact that other than Sandra Smith, Competitions Manager, the rest of the Competitions Team is furloughed.
In light of this and to try and assist all concerned the date for Challenges will be moved back to 31 August. Please can you help us by returning your results as quickly as possible in order we can upload them on to the website at the earliest opportunity. We of course will appreciate the co-operation and understanding of all Shooters as we endeavour to deliver the best service we can in exceptionally difficult circumstances.
COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on this Summer’s competition schedule so after adopting an innovative approach with our shooting friends around the world the NSRA are pleased to confirm some of our historic and important International Rifle Matches will still be shot.
As we strive to understand what the “new normal” actually means by applying common understanding and pragmatism sensible solutions have been found which enable us to move forward.
So the teams will be selected from a postal trial to be shot on home ranges with FREE ENTRY. Please follow the links below to find the relevant entry forms.

Press Release 25 July 2020
Covid-19 has changed the landscape for every business, organisation and charity and as a consequence we have taken the decision the Lord Roberts Centre will remain closed for the foreseeable future. In doing so we take into account the running costs of reopening, the additional cost of making a large, complex building Covid Secure each time it is used and the duty of care we have to our staff. It is also right each employee has been sent a personal communication to this effect in advance of this press release.
Now in its third year the ever popular Kempton Park Classic Arms Fair is teaming up with the NSRA and coming to Bisley on Sunday 23 August. Over 100 traders are expected and PUBLIC ADMISSION IS FREE. The Arms Fair will be outside to create a Covid-19 Secure Environment and will follow the same successful formula at Kempton Park’s recnt outdoor event. More details will be published in the next few days and the Arms Fair will include a number promotional offers and discounts available in the NSRA Shop. So while sadly there is no Bisley Week this year we do have a great show to put on and look forward to working with Pete Binfield and his team to bring the Kempton Park Classic Arms Fair to the home of shooting.
