The Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (CPSA) has announced that the CPSA World English Sporting and Sportrap Championships will return to the world-famous E.J. Churchill Shooting Ground, having last been hosted there in 2018.
The Championships will take place from June 8-14, 2020, (Rescheduled for July 5-11, 2021) and will include two world championships, one each for the disciplines of English Sporting and Sportrap (5-Stand). The event alternates every year between the CPSA in England and the National Sporting Clays Association in the USA. It attracts competitors from all over the world and is open to shooters of all levels.
E.J. Churchill Shooting Ground is part of West Wycombe Estate, the ancestral seat of the Dashwood baronets, which is owned by Sir Edward Dashwood. This grand English estate gives the event a unique feeling of British tradition that is an additional draw for competitors.
The World English Sporting Championships will consist of 200 targets. In addition to the two world championships, a preliminary English Sporting course and a FITASC Sporting course will also run during the event.
The CPSA is the national governing body for clay target shooting in England. The CPSA regulates the standards of safety and competition at over 300 affiliated and registered grounds around the country, promoting and organizing national championships in 16 different clay-shooting disciplines.
