2023 Swiss International IDPA Championships
IDPA Ultra Match


A new dimension of IDPA competitions!

More stages, more rounds, more challenges and more fun!

Come and join us to make this endeavor a success. Let’s take IDPA competitions to a next level!

Ultra MatchWhat does ‘Ultra Match’ mean? It’s a new brand for competitions that offer the shooters more stages to shoot than what has usually been the case in the sport so far.

StagesThere will be a total of 20 stages! Consisting of 17 normal stages, two warm-ups and one equipment/ chrono stage.

The stages will contain a lot of variety, they will test many different aspects of shooting abilities. We will balance ‘fast and fun’ with some more challenging target combinations. You can expect the stages to be on the very top level of quality, skills challenge and entertainment.

Shooters: All IDPA members competing in any handgun division are welcome! We hope for a very large international attendance and would like to make this event a true celebration of sportsmanship and camaraderie across all boundaries.

StaffWe will have two MDs and will need about 50 staff to run the match smoothly. All certified CSO, SO and motivated helpers are called to action! We are working on a compensation and/ or accommodation package for the staff.

We hope to have sparked your interest in the IDPA Ultra Match and would like you to join the team as staff or as competitor.

Join up and be part of this innovative move to promote our common sport!
