New stretch target


We are the Great Britain Under 25 Rifle Team and we are travelling to New Zealand in early 2019 to compete in the World Championships for long range target shooting. As various bodies have cut funding for many sports including ours, all our training, competitions and travel are self-funded and we need as much help as possible to get to the other side of the world and to ensure that the best athletes can represent our country rather than just those who can afford to.

We hope to build on our success at the last World Championships in 2015 by retaining our current title and bringing home the gold. We are extremely grateful for any support you can offer in helping us achieve this goal!

Who we are

We are a team of young athletes, male and female from all over the UK. Most of us got into the sport through cadets when we were younger and soon progressed into junior cadet and GB teams and have loved and stuck with it ever since. Target rifle shooting is an amateur sport and so all of us have jobs or are students outside of our shooting. We come together to train at Bisley in Surrey about once a month and have various competitions there throughout the year.

What we do

We shoot targets at distances from 300 yards to 1000 yards using sights with no magnification. It is a sport that requires concentration, skill and an ability to read wind. We compete all around the world and as a country are very successful at it. The World Championships are the pinnacle of the sport and are held once every four years, rotating around different countries. In 2019 the World Championships will be held in New Zealand where we will compete against a number of countries including Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Why we need your help

We compete in a very expensive sport and as it is all self-funded, particularly as young competitors, we struggle to fund overseas competition. As a sport that often attracts an unfair stigma, we also sadly find it difficult to find much sponsorship. We want the chance to represent our country in what we're good at and any help you can give us to do that is hugely appreciated.
