The Northern Ireland Field Target Association championships was shot over 2 weekends on 2 separate 50 target courses, we were blessed with crisp dry weather and not to everyone’s liking very little wind. The courses were split over open field and woodland conditions. With 6 standing shots on day 1 and 4 kneelers and 6 kneeling shots and 4 standers on day 2.

The Mid Ulster Air Rifle Club graciously held the championship shoot this year and did a sterling job with 2 world class courses in the fantastic setting of Loughgall Country Park, N.I.F.T.A extends their thanks and appreciation for hosting the shoot and following strict government guidelines to protect the shooters and event organisers from Covid 19.

The entries for the 2 day shoot were by invitation only to the top F.T shooters in Northern Ireland enabling the championship shoot to take place within the second wave of local lockdowns. Thankfully due to expert planning and risk assessment N.I.F.T.A were able to ensure their shooters had a national championship in these unsettled times. A special thanks to our sponsors Kahles Optics who kindly supplied prizes for the shoot.


The winners are listed below with some great pictures.
