The following rules apply to have a match counted as part of the 2015 Texas Grand Prix.

1. Only AAFTA member clubs in good standing can host a Grand Prix match.

2. A venue or club may host as many as two Grand Prix matches.

3. Grand Prix match venues must award plaques or trophies at their Grand Prix match, only for their event. First-place must be awarded in any class with at least three shooters; second place in any class with at least five shooters; and third place in any class with seven or more shooters.  

4. An announcement of the match should be submitted to the Grand Prix Director as early as possible, at least one month before the event.

8. At least 12 shooters must compete in a rifle match to qualify an event as a rifle Grand Prix match. At least 5 shooters must contest a pistol match for the event to qualify as a pistol Grand Prix match.

9. Scores from a class that gets consolidated with another are allowed, but the shooter must also comply with the rules of the consolidated class. If the shooter chooses not to consolidate, the shooter’s score will still be considered for the Grand Prix.

10. Scores will be normalized based on the highest score of the match (which represents 100%).

11. Match results and per-course Troyer calculations must be submitted to the Grand Prix Director no more than 15 days after the match.
