The Midland Game Fair provides the new home for one of the biggest shows in the shooting calendar this September, the World Hunter Field Target Championship arrives at Weston Park this coming September and is getting ready to welcome 360 competitors from over 10 different countries as they battle it out for the 2019 title.

The WHFTA is one of the biggest shows in the shooting calendar and with all the major manufacturers also in attendance, there’s plenty of things to see and do for both enthusiasts and those new to airgunning. As ever, the championship will consist of both the Manufacturer Team Championship and International Team Championship, and here spectators will be able to watch all the action unfold as marksmen battle it out for this year’s title.

Renowned as the largest airgunning competition of its kind, the hugely popular event arrives at its new home in September, and will settle in perfectly amid all of the other airgunning activity and sporting competition the Midland Game Fair has already lined up.

As the annual meeting place for the airgun community, the Midland Game Fair has always stayed loyal to its roots, and now with the addition of the World Hunter Field Target Championship, and of course the European Field Target Championship which is also taking place over the same weekend, the Midland undoubtedly remains the number one event of choice for enthusiasts and the wider airgunning shooting community.

A timed favourite with many of the Field Target community, competitors in both the ‘Worlds’ and the ‘Euros’ are always happy to show off their rifles and discuss the sport with visitors alike and is a great opportunity for enthusiasts to see first-hand some of the most sophisticated airguns and equipment in the sport.

Taking place at the Midland Game Fair over 14th and 15th September, the World Hunter Field Target Championship promises some fantastic viewing and is one not to be missed!
