Beretta World Sporting Championships 2016
GMK are pleased to announce that in 2016 the Beretta World will once again be held in the beautiful grounds of the Holywell Estate, Hampshire. The event will be held from Thursday 30th June - Saturday 2nd July 2016. This highly acclaimed event has been running for almost 30 years now and regularly attracts over 1,000 entries.
The Holywell Estate is situated in the new South Downs National Park, in the unspoilt rolling countryside of the Meon Valley, in Hampshire. Holywell extends to over 800 acres of varied landscape including ancient semi-natural woodland, river meadows and historic parkland. Holywell House, believed to date back to the 1700s is at the heart of this working estate. We look forward to once more staging the event in this glorious setting and are most grateful to the Earl and Countess of Clarendon and their family, for agreeing to host the event again.
In consideration of local residents we are running the competition from Thursday through to Saturday, in order to maintain a quiet Sunday in what is a peaceful rural area.
The format of the Beretta World will change somewhat this year. 120 targets will still be shot over 15 stands however, we shall be running two courses; one of seven stands and one of eight. Squads will start on one or other of the courses but will then move to the alternate course once the first has been completed. Both courses will be shot in the same order by all squads. Many people will already have encountered this system at other major shoots.
Another change to the competition will be the removal of the final. For 2016 the highest score over the three days will win outright. The Beretta World has become renowned for creating challenging and original courses that can test the more able shooter without excluding the less experienced shot. 2016 will be no exception.
Once again there will be a huge array of prizes from our generous sponsors, more details of which will be published closer to the event.
It will, undoubtedly, be a fabulous weekend; a chance to catch up with old friends, many of whom return year on year. So make sure you reserve the dates!
