World Shooting Para Sport have announced the provisional competition calendar for the 2021 season.

It includes the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, three World Cups and the Para Trap World Championships to be held in Lonato del Garda, Italy. 

The World Cup season kicks off in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates in March. UAE’s fourth largest city has been part of the competition calendar since 2016.

Wroclaw, Poland will host a World Cup for the first time in April in the only European stop of the 2021 season. The competition will take place at the WKS Slask Wroclaw shooting range.

The World Cup travels to South America in May with the Peruvian capital Lima hosting the final leg of the 2021 season. It will also be the final qualification event for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and the first ever shooting Para sport World Cup in South America. 

The world class venue will be the Las Palmas Shooting Range, the same used at the Lima 2019 Parapan American Games when shooting was part of the competition programme for the first time.

Following the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games in August, the shooting Para sport resumes at the Lonato 2021 Para Trap World Championships.

The Italian city hosted the first Para Trap Worlds back in October 2018. The 2021 Worlds are scheduled for late September with exact dates yet to be announced.
