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


The 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

 

Demonstrations of competitive pea shooting from the National Pea Shooting Association, host of the first National Pea Shooting Championship are taking place in downtown Roanoke leading up to the Championship on October 11 2014.
