HIGH TOWER CHALLENGE
High Tower Challenge 2021 from June 1st through to July 31st, warming up in the Bunker, through to the Quarry and then the skeet which shows some “Big” targets. Please note that booking is necessary call 01234 708 893, Option 1, Good Luck.
The challenge incorporates some very testing targets and the odd unusual bird from one of the three towers that Sporting Targets has to offer. This years challenge had to be moved a month later to start in July and run to the end of August, it stated in the Bunker with a report pair off the 60ft to warm you up, the skeet then had 3 pegs with a 110ft dropping looper, long 120ft crosser, battue, looper and overhead all of which tested you more and more especially on the last peg, we then moved into the Quarry for the last 3 stands, finishing on 2 long tower crossers.
Early on Jezz Towell posted a very impressive 46 which was thought to be the score but he saw more out there and soon followed it up with a 48 which is very exceptional shooting to say the least, many top guns tried to equal or better his fantastic score but failed to do so and he has been crowned High Tower Challenge Champion 2020.
The challenge started 27 years ago in 1993 and Jezz first won in 1997 and this win makes his 15th entry onto the honour board, well done Jezz, good to see you back on the board.
The High Tower Challenge will be back in 2019; running from June 1st through to July 31st, no booking is necessary just turn up and shoot and have as many goes as you like; see if you can improve your score or even win the high gun prize.
Congratulations to Mark Winser who took the High Gun on the last day with 47, Andy Nixon led the challenge for 7 weeks with 45 and held on until the 11th hour, well done. Andy took Open Class with the 2nd highest score. For a full set of the winners please see the results below.

Congratulations to all of the prize winners and thank you to all those people whose entry made it a very successful competition.
We are still blown away by Mark Massey's 47!
