Winchester has announced the start of the second year of the Ladies Cup, which coincides with the 2022 NSCA Championship tour, powered by Winchester. Team Winchester all-star Desi Edmunds and team will look to continue 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.

The Winchester Ladies Cup, which culminated at the NSCA Championship finals In October, spanned seven NSCA Championship Tour regional events. An added payout of $5,000 was awarded to the top three all-around female competitors at each event based on the highest cumulative score in the NSCA 5-Stand, Main Event and FITASC Event. The all-around champion received an additional $2,500, the runner-up received $1,500. All-around third place received $1,000.

During the awards ceremony that concluded the 2021 Championships, $10,000 was shared among the three female shooters with the highest cumulative placements for the entire season. The Ladies Cup trophy and $5,000 was awarded to champion Shedd, while Sharpe walked away with $3,000; and Harrington, $2,000 for a third-place finish.
