British Open English Sporting

The British Open English Sporting returns for its 90th year next week, hosted by Steve Lovatt and his team at Garlands Shooting Ground, Tamworth.

The event, which will run from Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th September, has over 1000 shooters signed up to complete a 120-bird course in a bid to qualify for the finals day, which takes place on the Sunday. The finals day will consist of the shooters who finished in the top 5 from each class (AAA, AA, A, B and C) and the top 3 from each category (Senior, Ladies, Veterans, Juniors and Colts) on the previous days.

The finalists will take on 75 targets in order to narrow it down to a six man super final, where the best of the best will compete for the title of British Open English Sporting High Gun and with it the prestigious Daily Telegraph Cup, which was first won by CW Mackworth-Praed in 1925.

The British Open Sportrap will also be taking place at this venue from Wednesday to Saturday.

This year’s event is sponsored by leading gun maker Zoli and major cartridge manufacturer Gamebore and has an estimated prize fund in excess of £25,000.

Below is the estimated schedule for Sunday’s finals day. Please be aware that there may be changes to this.
