Pop-Up Pea Shooting Practice Range Opens at 16 West Marketplace

This fall, Roanoke, VA hosts the first ever National Pea Shooting Championship (NPSC), presented by the National Pea Shooting Association (NPSA).

To help local contestants prepare and develop their pea shooting skills 16 West Marketplace has opened a pop-up pea shooting practice range.


The range is open during regular 16 West Marketplace hours and is free for all NPSC contestants to use.

The National Pea Shooting Association (NPSA) will also host pea shooting demonstrations and Round 1 NPSC heats at the range, up until the Championship on October 11.

In the spirit of pop-up stores the range will cease after October 11. Though it may open again in preparation for the 2015 NPSC.

National Pea Shooting Championship
Saturday, October 11
10 am - 4 pm
Franklin Road
Between Jefferson Ave and Williamson Road,
Roanoke VA 24011

 "It’s more skillful than something like archery because you have inconsistencies with the peas.”
Ian Ashmeade, former World Pea Shooting Champion

The National Pea Shooting Championship takes place in the downtown district of Roanoke, on Franklin Road, between Jefferson Street and Williamson Road – and is a main attraction of the Virginia Science Festival, occurring the same day.

The championship is open to men and women, boys and girls, from ages five and up. At the end of the championship one person will emerge as the National Pea Shooting Champion.

“Probably one of the simplest sports available, participants place the pea shooter (similar to a drinking straw) to their lips and blow as hard as they can, aiming to shoot the pea at a chosen target.”
The Independent Newspaper, London, England
