English Skeet (ESK)
Welcome to the English Skeet Team page. Everything you need to know about representing England in this discipline can be found here.
Skeet is a word of Scandinavian origin, though the original discipline originated in America. An English Skeet (ESK) layout has two traps situated in a high house to the left and a low house to the right, about 40 metres apart, which throw the targets across the layout. There are seven stands which the shooter completes from left to right. A sequence is used, where the targets are thrown either as singles, or as pairs where the high and low target are thrown simultaneously. For more information please click here

Below is the process used to decide selection for the England ESK Team for Home International Team matches only (under the jurisdiction of the ICTSC).
There are 2 selection shoots that run between March and June each year. Where these shoots are held is determined by a rota with one being held in the North and one being held in the South.
To attend an ESK selection shoot, the shooter must submit 5 best scores from 3 different grounds for the period 1st July 2021 - 28th February 2022.
The deadline for submitting these scores is Midnight on 28th February 2022
From these scores the top 60 Seniors, 15 Ladies, 15 Juniors, 15 Veterans and 15 Super-veterans are invited to attend the selection shoots, of which they must attend both as it is all scores to count.
At the end of the 2nd Selection shoot, scores are submitted and scores calculated from High Gun. Those with the best scores will go through to the team
