Pea Shooting

The World Pea Shooting Championships is held on Witcham's village green, Cambridgeshire. The event has been held annually since 1971.



In this competition, contestants shoot a pea through a tube, 12 feet towards a 12-inch target.

This event is taken very seriously by some competitors - some participants even have laser-guided shooters.
