About Us

If you shoot, you should be a member of the CPSA.

The CPSA is the National Governing body for Clay Target Shooting in England, supporting clay target shooting enthusiasts across the UK. As an association we promote the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of our sport.

Open to all who want to learn, develop or use their skills to compete at every level; our members are backed by over 140 years of unrivalled understanding and expertise.

Based at the National Shooting Centre, Bisley, Woking, Surrey, we operate from a small headquarters and employ 15 people directly and work alongside several industry specialist consultants. 

The remit of the CPSA is to manage the sport of Clay Target Shooting for its approximately 22,500 members and the 400 clubs and grounds affiliated or associated with us.  There are also approximately 200 Trade Members associated with the CPSA who believe that being part of the association can be mutually advantageous.

The CPSA offer support to its members in various ways:

  • The opportunity to shoot in registered competitions, both at a Regional and National level
  • The opportunity to be selected for the England Team Shooting events and also GB Team events through British Shooting (BICTSF)
  • The ability to obtain a shooting classification (a bit like a golf handicap), based on your scores at registered shoots
  • A £10 million pound civil liability insurance, covering not only clay shooting, but all game, rough, rifle, pistol shooting and angling
  • A £30,000 personal injury insurance, covering all the above sports
  • Public liability insurance (for CPSA qualified coaches and instructors)
  • The publication of Pull! magazine, a members' association publication issued 10 times a year
