World English Sporting 2016


The World English Sporting 'Festival of Shooting' returns to England in 2016.

The 'Festival of Shooting' will be held at E.J. Churchill Shooting Ground on June 20-26. 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. Below you can find the dates and details of the individual competitions.

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. The luxury of such vast acreage at your disposal is that the CPSA World English Sporting layouts will be entirely different from 2014, giving shooters a brand new challenge whilst upholding the quality experience E.J. Churchill has to offer.
