The 5th ICTSF World English Sporting Championships

3rd - 6th July 2019

One of the 2019 sporting highlights is set to be The 5th ICTSF World English Sporting Championships; held for the first time in Ireland, from Wednesday the 3rd to Saturday the 6th of July on The Devenish Lands at Dowth Hall, Co. Meath.

The Devenish Lands at Dowth encompass over 500 acres of rolling hills, open green pastures, river valleys and woodlands, which have never been shot before.

Ask any shooter what the key ingredient of a great shoot is, and they will answer “the targets”.

It doesn’t get much better than targets set by legendary Richard Faulds MBE, the current ICTSF World Champion, 21 times World-title holder in Sporting and FITASC, and Olympic Gold Medallist. As the official course designer, Faulds will set the 200 target (2 day) Main Event as well the 100 target Sportrap and 100 Preliminary side events. Faulds is renowned in the sporting clays community for setting World class targets and rest assured that the ICTSF WESP 2019 will be no exception. The scope and topography of the WESP site location is vast, making it the perfect canvas for this master shooter to create a competition that will be worthy of the World English Sporting title.

The course plans are well underway, entries are open and sporting shooters from across the globe are securing their place for this ICTSF WESP Championship event. Entries have been open since early November 2018; the Friday/Saturday rotations of the 200 target Main Event sold out rapidly, leaving the Wednesday/Thursday rotations as the remaining option for bookings. The Sportrap and Preliminary side events are also booking out at speed with very limited space available for the latter half of the week. To date, shooters from over 13 countries (England, USA, Northern Ireland, Australia, Zimbabwe, Canada, Scotland, France, Russia, Wales, New Zealand, South Africa, Poland and Ireland) will be competing, with room for more...

The Trade Village is set to include stands from all the major brands in the shooting industry, with the addition of a select range of Irish vendors. Event sponsors Eley Hawk will be selling cartridges onsite at the event, with other brands also available from individual vendors.


The competition entry fee for the 200 bird Main Event is €145; 100 Preliminary is €60, and the 100 target Sportrap is also €60. The overall high gun and World Champion of the 5th ICTSF World English Sporting Championships will receive a guaranteed prize sum of €10,000. The prize sum is made up of €5,000 guaranteed from the entries and €5,000 kindly sponsored by our main sponsor Devenish Nutrition Limited. We would like to thank Devenish for their continuing support of these World Championships.
