The Ladies International Grand Prix started on the initiative of the European Champion Ylva Jansson from Sweden. The first competition took place in Uppsala, Sweden in September 1988 with participants from England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany and Sweden.

Since then the competition has been arranged every year with a growing number of shooters and nations.

The purpose is to unite experienced Olympic Skeet shooters with newcomers to the sport in a high quality competition with a friendly atmosphere.
