Planned Special Events

7-14 September 2019 – World Association 1500 – World Championships

World Association 1500 (WA 1500) World Championships to be held at the SHRSC from 7-14 September 2019. The WA 1500 World Championships was bid for to the World Association in 2017. In 2018 it was awarded by the World Association to Australia and then by Pistol Australia to NSW at the SHRSC. This was won over a bid to hold it in Victoria at Yarra Pistol Club.

Although expected competitor numbers are small (100-150 competitors), this is a very prestigious event for the NSW Amateur Pistol Association (NSWAPA) to host as opportunities like this only occur around every 10-15 years as they are shared around the affiliated countries and their area/states.
