Winchester has a long track record of promoting female participation in shooting sports, with its finale of the second annual Ladies Cup coinciding with the 2022 NSCA Championship Tour. Team Winchester all-star Desi Edmunds continued the momentum from last season’s success.

At the Cup’s debut in spring 2021, Winchester Ammunition President Brett Flaugher explained that a lot of thinking went into the Winchester Ladies Cup. “It started by looking at the current payout structure between the top men shooters and the top women shooters,” he said, noting there was a big difference in their earnings, with the payout to the female winners being significantly lower.

“The Winchester Ladies Cup is an opportunity to add tremendous value to the many female sporting clays shooters across the country—a group of competitors who continue to grow each year and compete at a high level,” he said.
