Handicap Challenge 2023

We are delighted to announce that the Handicap Challenge 2023 will commence on Monday 9th January and will run for eight weeks, until Saturday 4th March.

This year the Handicap is back with a difference: World Champion shot and renowned coach Ed Solomons is designing an enjoyable yet challenging course along with Steve Turner and the Purdey Royal Berkshire team.

You can shoot Monday- Saturday in any week and entry is priced at £65.00 if shooting on your own or £60.00 if shooting with a friend. You can also shoot this competition as many times as you like!

We welcome ISB Browning back on board for another year as headline sponsor – they will, as with past years, be providing the Handicap Champion with a Browning shotgun of their choice*.

Other brands generously sponsoring the competition are Gamebore, Le Chameau, Edwards Eyewear, Heckfield Place and Purdey, all of whom will be providing brilliant prizes both for weekly winners and at the Final itself. This is an Open handicapped 100 target English Sporting Championship with the course built to a 'par' score of 94ex-100. The wonderful thing about this competition is that its handicap system ensures a truly level playing field, giving anyone the opportunity to win!

Weekly prizes awarded are:

  • Top Gun 350 Gamebore cartridges
  • 2nd Place gun £100 cash
  • 3rd Place gun 200 Gamebore cartridges
