Welcome to the website of the

World Crossbow Shooting Association


The World Crossbow Shooting Association Inc. (WCSA) is an international organisation representing the interests of target and open (sport) crossbow shooters around the world. Medieval and 3D competitions are also encouraged.


Crossbow Demonstation at St. Peters College, Agra India

In February 2014 WCSA sent 2 International Judges to assist with a competition in Agra India. They were Tony McLoughlin and myself (Stephen Sommers). Whilst there we assisted the India Crossbow Shooting Association & 3 Swedes put on a Crossbow demonstration at St. Peters College in Agra. Our audience was 2000 students. Here is my report I submitted to WCSA. I felt that it was worthwhile sharing to the audience.

The World Crossbow Shooting Association is pleased to announce that the 2nd European Target Championships will be hosted by Feldarmbrust Ennigerloh, Ennigerloh, Germany from 6 to 8 June 2014.  This event will be open to  Target (Field), Sporting and Medieval crossbows and will be conducted in conjunction with an Open German Masters Championship for IAU shooters on the same field.  The event is also being supported by the Armbrustbund e.V.  There will also be a mixed teams championship according to the WCSA Rule dated 1 January 2014.

There will be no formal Matchplay Championship but is is hoped that a combined short-form matchplay event will be open to all competitors at the end of the second day.

Please see the invitation, with all entries and enquiries to Edwin Hirte.
