2021 North vs South - Rescheduled

The North vs South match will be held as follows:

Date:          26 - 27 March 2022

Venues:     Christchurch and Palmerston North

Format:      The usual format and timings - excluding the derby match, which will not be shot

                                                Saturday - North vs South

                                                Sunday Morning - NZ Match


  • Although being shot in (early) 2022 - this is the 2021 North vs South match, so the 2021 badges and date bars will be awarded based on this match
  • The 2022 match will proceed as planned - the 2021 match reschedule has no impact on the 2022 match
  • Juniors in 2021 remain able/eligible to shoot in the 2021 match even if they are no longer Juniors in 2022


2021 North vs South - UPDATE 27.8.21

Thank you to those who sent feedback on a possible re-scheduling of the cancelled North vs South Match.  The Executive have now met and reviewed this and have decided to get this match back on for 2021 if at all possible.

It will have to be in a different format of course, and details of the proposed new match and the Team Lists are below.

However before any new match can happen there needs to be  a change made to the Indoor Rules, and a Special General Meeting is being called for 23rd September for Associations to vote on this.

Should this vote go through, all shooters involved will then get the chance to agree to the proposed match or not, and it can only be run if a majority agree.

We’ll keep everyone informed as this goes forward, and hopefully Covid will allow us to get the match shot in some form or other this year.

Due to the NZ-wide Covid level changes made on 18 August
it is not possible to hold the North vs South match on 21-22 August in Christchurch.

However as this year’s hosts are unable to hold the event on any alternate date, we are considering the option of re-scheduling this for 15-17 October as a multi-venue event.  We invite feedback from those who would have been attending this weekend – please email the office with your comments.

Please contact Christchurch Target Shooting Association to arrange refund of your dinner tickets by replying to the Shooter Confirmation email, and don’t forget to cancel your accommodation in time for refunds.

North vs South Explained

Teams of shooters are selected for North Island and South Island teams based on Championship scores shot between April and June each year.  For North Islanders this is based on the average out of 100 of their FOUR best scores, while for South Islanders it is from their THREE best scores.

The RANKING LIST from the TSNZ Office gives the current ranking for all shooters who have nominated for North/South.

OPEN - 20 members plus 2 emergencies
WOMEN - 15 members plus 2 emergencies
MEN - 15 members plus 2 emergencies (for the first time in 2019)
JUNIOR - 10 members plus 2 emergencies
VETERAN - 10 members plus 2 emergencies


Some places in each team are awarded automatically based on the Ranking List.  These are 15 for the Open team, 11 for the Women's and Men's Teams, 7 for the Juniors and Veterans Teams.

An Island Selection Panel of three (who have been appointed at the previous TSNZ AGM) confirm the automatic selections and then select the remaining members from the full list of nominees.  They can consider nominees who have not shot 3 Championships for South Island and 4 Championships for North Island if they feel this is warranted.

Shooters who have been selected for the Teams are advised of their success by early July, and will then receive full information on the match and what is expected of them.

Managers are also appointed for each team at this time too.



Each Team and Island has a Manager who makes sure their teams know all they need to in advance of the match, and are present during the weekend.  On the Friday night the Manager will introduce his/her team along with their years of representation and will present the Island datebars. During the Saturday match the Manager will make sure everyone is ready on time, will check targets and be the liaison for any protests, and at the Dinner will make sure everyone is present (and well presented) at the team photos.

On the Saturday all teams shoot shoulder to shoulder and will shoot one ten-shot, one twenty-shot, and then one ten-shot match.   Separate matches are shot for each team a shooter has qualified for - for example a shooter in both the Junior and Open teams will have to shoot two separate lots of matches, one for each team.  

Those who rank in the top of each team qualify for their respective New Zealand Team(s), and then shoot on the Sunday in a Postal Match against the UK Home Counties.  Shooters who do not make the NZ teams also shoot on the Sunday in the Derby Match, where teams have been drawn from their ranking on the previous day.  There is often a Manager's match too, where the team managers have to borrow all the gear they need.

The event concludes with an Awards Dinner on the Sunday night, which is a formal event and includes presentation of trophies and NZ pockets and datebars, and photographs of all teams.  The dress code for all team members is black trousers/skirt, white shirt/top, and black blazer/jacket.

The final event at North vs South was the Derby Match, always an interesting event with results kept under wraps until the Dinner. 
Congratulations to the winning team The Hopefuls, and the winners of the Best Name award, Olly's Wallys.


The weekend concluded with the Dinner and Presentations at the Petone Club.   
Well done to all those who top-scored, and who qualified for NZ teams,
and a special mention to those shooters who respresented their Island or NZ for the first time at this event. 
Photos will be added soon.


Many thanks to Hutt Valley Association for organising and managing the 2019 North vs South match,
and to all the willing helpers who were there over the weekend. 



The NZ teams scores will be set against the UK Home Counties scores to be received in January 2020.
