Quick Links In The Section
The first Imperial Meeting was contested on Wimbledon Common, in south-west London, in 1860 where Queen Victoria fired the first shot and gave a prize of £250 to the best individual marksman. Originally the Meeting was only available to Volunteers (regular and reserve military personnel) using the issued service rifle of the day.
Today the Imperial Meeting as an open competition with the aim to promote and encourage marksmanship throughout the Queen’s (or King’s) dominions, and has grown to include many different disciplines. The Target Rifle Meeting dominates the final week of competitions and culminates with the final of the Queen’s Prize, with the £250 prize still awarded to the winner.
There are a multitude of squadded, aggregate and team competitions for competitors to be involved in, over the 10 day Meeting.
