THE CPSA are delighted to announce the seven day ‘festival of shooting’ will once again be held at E.J. Churchill Shooting Ground from June 25 – July 1. It will consist of the CPSA World English Sporting, World Sportrap, a Prelim English Sporting, a FITASC Sporting, the Blaser Intercontinental Trophy and a range of other exciting events.
E.J. Churchill, based on the West Wycombe Estate, has won many accolades including Club/Ground of the Year at the 2017 CPSA Awards, as voted for by CPSA members. 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. The luxury of such vast acreage at your disposal is that the CPSA World English Sporting layouts will be entirely different from 2014 and 2016, giving shooters a brand new challenge whilst upholding the quality experience E.J. Churchill has to offer.
Member of the Lithuanian Hunting Shooting Federation Giedrius Malakauskas has been participating in these competitions not the first time.
