What is the MFTA 
The Midlands Field Target Association (MFTA) is the regional governing body for Field Target (FT) in the Midlands region of England.
Its aim is to promote the air rifle sport of Field Target shooting within this region. The MFTA achieves this aim by organising regional competition leagues and shoots, establishing rules for those leagues, and offering guidance for the clubs which form the Association. Leagues are shot over the winter period when the national competitions are dormant, and we also offer a slightly more relaxed summer league for those who don’t wish to compete nationally. The Association is also a member of the British Field Target Association (BFTA) and organises the region’s BFTA Grand Prix Round as well as hosting the BFTA European Championships.
The Association is fully insured and is open to any club within the region. All association member clubs of the regional are also insured.

About MFTA clubs

The region’s clubs provide safe and friendly airgun shooting in an outdoor environment for all levels and abilities from novice to expert.
The clubs offer a wide range of opportunities for anyone regardless of age, sex or physical ability. The clubs are predominantly outdoor ranges. Some clubs are quite small, some clubs have much larger memberships. Whatever your skill and comfort level we hope you’ll find one of them to suit your interests. A requirement of Association membership is that clubs be insured and follow best practices.
