The 2023 Grand American World Trapshooting Championship will be held August 2-12 at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Illinois. This year's tournament marks the 124th time that Amateur Trapshooting Association competitors have gathered to determine the world's greatest trapshooter.

Here is what ATA President Ed Wehking said about this year’s Grand American tournament:

“Lynn Gipson and his talented staff make sure that this is a blockbuster of an event. From the AIM Championships, preliminary week, all through Grand week, there is never a dull moment. If you have never been here, you owe it to yourself to see the shoot that our roots are based on. Whether you are a shooter, observer, or just a shopper, you will marvel at all the moving parts that makes a shoot like this run. The opening ceremonies and the three miles of trap line are a must see. All your favorite vendors will be on hand.”

As for prize money payouts, ATA spreads the Grand American awards around with percentage systems, class purses, Lewis Class, yardage groups and high-gun prizes.

Pre-squadding for the 2023 Grand American will open June 19 at the ATA website and will close on July 23.
