Entry Form

Please find the entry form for the 2023 Derby Open

We are expecting a big demand so return your entry form quickly. If you can shoot some events on Friday, you will have a better chance of being squadded for all the events you want.

Please note:

  • In T&P1 and Multi-Target there is a separate class for LBPs and LBRs with iron sights.
  • For GR Classic the ‘spirit of the Original’ must endure.
  • There are events for GR Open, however please note you are not permitted to use a GR Standard or GR Classic rifle to compete in this event.

All the sponsors from 2022 (see below) have agreed to support us again plus a couple more, and we will put on the best prize table possible.

A new sponsor, RELOADINGUK, will be giving every competitor a free ammunition box and powder funnel. You can pick these up when you collect your scorecards.

Squadding should be circulated about 10 days before the event so do not panic if you don’t hear back straight away, I will make every effort to accommodate your squadding preferences but no guarantees.

If you wish you can return your entry by email and pay by BACS – and please include your classifications!

Team Derby looks forward to seeing you.

We are very happy to have the following companies sponsor this event:

Wentworth Sporting Supplies
Reloading UK
Hannams Reloading
Brownells UK
The Countryman of Derby
