Winchester Ammunition announces the Winchester Ladies Cup, an all-new, season-long sporting clays competition designed specifically for ladies who shoot on the National Sporting Clays Association Championship Tour, powered by Winchester. 

“A lot of thinking went into the Winchester Ladies Cup, and it started by looking at the current payout structure between the top men shooters and the top women shooters. There was a big difference in their earnings with the payout to the female winners being significantly lower,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition. “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.” 

The Winchester Ladies Cup will span the seven NSCA Championship Tour regional events with $5,000 in added payout dollars awarded to the top three all-around female competitors at each event based on the highest cumulative score in the Five-Stand, Main Event and FITASC Event. The all-around champion will receive an additional $2,500, the runner-up will receive $1,500 and all-around third place will receive $1,000.  

At the end of the season, the Winchester Ladies Cup trophy and $10,000 will be awarded to the three female shooters with the highest cumulative placements for the entire season. The Ladies Cup trophy and $5,000 will be awarded to the Ladies Cup champion, $3,000 will be awarded to the runner-up, and $2,000 will be awarded for the Ladies Cup third place. Season standings will continuously be updated on nssa-nsca.org.

“I am continuously impressed with how Winchester brings innovative thinking into their support of the shooting sports,” said Desirae Edmunds, professional sporting clays shooter and member of Team Winchester. “The Winchester commitment to actively growing participation is unparalleled, and I know many ladies who will greatly benefit from the Winchester Ladies Cup.”

Winchester has a long track record of promoting female participation in the shooting sports. As the official ammunition of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), Winchester is supporting a group that introduces the shooting sports to thousands of young ladies each year. In addition, Winchester representatives Kim Rhode, Dania Vizzi, Maddy Bernau, Becky Yackley, Taylor Thorne, Kemble DuPont and Desirae Edmonds (shown) span the clay target and three-gun disciplines at the highest levels of competition, serving as role models and inspiration for the next generation of sport shooters.
