The greatest event in the clay shooting calendar, the CPSA World English Sporting Championship returns to English soil in 2016. The CPSA are delighted to announce the continued support from one of England’s finest shooting grounds, E.J. Churchill. This remarkable ‘festival of shooting’ will take place between the 20th and the 26th June 2016 in the glorious Buckinghamshire countryside.
The full week’s shooting will include the CPSA World English Sporting, World Sportrap, Prelim English Sporting, FITASC Sporting and a range of exciting supporting events.
Following the success of the CPSA English Open Sporting at High Lodge, the CPSA World English Sporting Championship will follow the new format of all squads starting on stand 1 on each of the courses.
E.J. Churchill based on the West Wycombe Estate has won many accolades including, best shooting ground in the UK in the IPC Shooting Industry Awards 2014 and will be celebrating 125 years in 2016. With a stunning 5,000 acre property set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the venue is justly proud of its long heritage and first-class facilities.
