05/08/18 - Team WHFTA would like to announce that WHFTA has a new home for the immediate future! Behind the scenes Team WHFTA have been busy with concerted efforts to aid the natural evolution of the sport of HFT. It gives us great pleasure to reveal that WHFTA 2019 will be held at Weston Park as part of the Midland Game Fair in September 2019.

 The WHFTA  Championships are one of the biggest shows in the shooting calendar and with major manufacturers  in attendance, we are sure there will be plenty of things to see and do for enthusiasts, competitors 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 the 2019 title.

Organiser and spokesman for the World Hunter Field Target Championship, Pete Sparkes says of the new move: ‘We are thrilled that the 2019 HFT Worlds will be held at Weston Park in September. Having held the first Worlds at the Kelmarsh Country Show back in 2009, we’re so happy the sport continues to be as successful as it did back then. With the move to the Midland Game Fair next year, we’re confident to expose this superb championship to the masses and believe next year’s championship will be our biggest yet! With application forms being sent out in the New Year, we look forward to getting in touch and keeping everyone updated on next year’s championship soon.’

Countryman Fairs organise five award-winning events across the UK throughout the year, each showcasing the very best in country life. For more information on all of Countryman Fairs events visit the website at www.countrymanfairs.co.uk and join us on Facebook to stay up to date with the latest news and developments as they happen.
