English Skeet

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

England Team Captaincy

  • The Team Captain will be the member with the most number of appearances (cpsa) in the specific event’s team, irrespective of category.  If any team member has already been Captain at any time in the past, their appearances will be counted from the year following their last captaincy.
  • In the event of two or more members having the same number of caps, the member with the earliest first team appearance will become Captain.  If there is still a tie, the lowest ORIGINAL CPSA number will determine the captaincy for that year.

Shooting for England

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 in April 2024 and June 2024.  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 2023 - 29th February 2024.  Scores can be used from ANY registered shoot.

Please enter your scores  HERE

The deadline for submitting these scores is Midnight on 29th February 2024

From these scores the top 60 Seniors, 15 Ladies, 15 Juniors, 15 Veterans and 15 Super-veterans are invited to attend the 2 x Selection Shoots,  both Selection Shoots must be attended, as it is all scores to count.

At the end of the 2nd Selection shoot, scores are submitted and points calculated from High Gun.  Those with the lowest points will go through to the team.

In the event of a tie for a place in the England Team, the place will be decided by the highest aggregate score of the two counting scores.  If a tie still exists the highest aggregate from the 5 qualifying scores used to gain a place into the Selection Shoots will decide the place.

The category in which you are invited to attend these Selection Shoots may not necessarily be the category in which you are selected for the Team.  The England Team is decided upon to produce the strongest Team.

ESK Selection Shoot bookings open at 9am on Sunday 3rd March 2024
