Trapshooting Grand Slam awards are presented annually at the Trap Hall of Fame Dinner. The awards are in the form of a plaque and are given to those shooters who have satisfactorily proven their attainment of the award criteria since the last annual award ceremony.


The qualifying criteria is to achieve a combination of all three individual elements of the award. The individual elements are:

15 Metres 25 Metres Double Rise
400 Targets 50 Targets 50 Targets




Membership – The recipient must be a registered ACTA member at the time of each individual break and at the receipt of the award.

Eligible Events – Each break can be achieved in any event conducted in Australia or internationally provided that the Shoot Program detailing the relevant event was advertised in advance in the National magazine of the governing body.

Event Rules – The break must be attained in events conducted under ACTA Trap Rules or rules considered by the ACTA to be a sufficiently close facsimile thereof.

Validity – To be considered eligible, each individual break must conform to the criteria of ACTA Rule 4.24 regardless of what country the break was achieved in.

Substantiation – The onus is on the individual to provide satisfactory evidence to the ACTA of each individual qualifying achievement and is not on the ACTA to disprove any claim made by an individual. Satisfactory evidence would normally be in writing and would include a copy of the Shoot Program and the Shoot results. If the Shoot results do not substantiate the claim, then a letter from the Shoot secretary detailing the break and enclosing a copy of the relevant score sheets would suffice.

Recording – The ACTA shall keep a register of those shooters who prove eligibility of each individual element of the Award criteria and then transpose those names into an Award register once all three elements are achieved.

Timeframe – The award is for lifetime achievements and only one will be presented.
