The Summer is officially here and we couldn’t be happier about it. Along with our high hopes for plenty of sunshine over the summer season, comes the longer days and of course our evening opening hours, meaning more time for our beloved Shooting Sports. And now that we’ve made the transition into late opening on Wednesday & Thursday evenings, it’s time to get the annual Beretta Summer League wheels in motion.

What can you win?

This amazing competition is kicking off on Wednesday May 17th for 14 weeks with the Grand Final being held on August 20th. The competition consists of a 50 Clay Target sporting course each week with entries set at €20, €30 (clays + 50 cartridges) & €15 re-entry. To be in with a chance to win one of the 2 Beretta 690’s up for grabs, a class prize or a cut of the 10,000 cheddite cartridges, entrants must submit 8 scores (1 score per week) over the 14 weeks. On Wednesday each week, entrants will see a new course set, ready to challenge you and test your skills. Each week will offer the opportunity to learn and develop your shooting skills. The course can be shot as many times as you like from Wednesday to Sunday, with your best score to count so if you’re not happy and want to try again (and again), you can. We recommend that entrants shoot on Wednesday evenings, Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings as these are the most popular shooting times, if you’re a lone shooter you can be sure of meeting a few others & getting in a squad.

Handicaps Apply

To keep the competition as fair as possible, the 2018 Leinster Interclub League classes will apply, with AAA +0, AA +1, A +3 classes competing for one Beretta 690 Sporting and Classes B +6, C +8 and D +12 competing for the other. There will also be Junior and Ladies class prizes too so there is something for everyone to compete for even if it is just for your own Personal Best.

Courtlough Ladies Club

We know the Courtlough Ladies Club will be out in force for the duration of the Summer League so if there are any ladies who would like to join them, contact Aine or Nicola via the Courtlough Ladies Club Facebook/Instagram page or pick up a business card in the shop.

With only hours to go before the Beretta Summer League 2017 officially opens, we would like to wish everyone taking part the very best of luck and remember to have fun & enjoy it.

Happy Shooting,

The Courtlough Team
