Varsity - Revolver

The first revolver (full-bore) varsity match between Oxford and Cambridge took place in 1908 at the NRA Imperial meeting and was officially incorporated into the programme in 1909 with the first win going to Cambridge.

The match was originally named the 'Universities Revolver Match' but renamed to the 'Heslop Cup' in 1929 after the trophy was donated by the Cambridge alumni. The name changed again in 1949 to the 'Oxford and Cambridge Revolver Match' and in 1962 to the 'Oxford and Cambridge Pistol Match'. The match was not shot between 1915-1919 or 1940-1945 on account of the first and second world wars.

Below are listed the available results of the revolver matches. Older match reports and scores are available from the club archives in Elizabeth Way, the Cambridge University Library and the NRA museum library.
