Tier 4 Guidance regarding shooting grounds and CPSA Registered Shoots


Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s address to the nation last night London and areas of the south east of England will move to Tier 4 alert level from today (Sunday 20 December).

Under Government Guidance issued last night we can confirm Shooting Grounds in Tier 4 areas can remain open for practice, pay & play in the following formats:

o             Individual practice

o             Practice with people within your household (people you live with)

o             Practice with one other person from another household

Due to Tier 4 government guidance all CPSA registered shoots must be suspended until further notice in Tier 4 areas.

Under the guidance coaching will be allowed on an individual basis or for multiple members of the same household. It is essential that COVID 19 Secure measures are followed at all times.

If you live in a Tier 4 area you must follow specific travel guidance including not leaving Tier 4 areas except where permitted under the guidance. Tier 4 areas should not be entered by anybody from a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area. Those members living in a Tier 4 area unfortunately cannot take part in CPSA Registered competitions in Tier 1, 2 or 3 areas.  Full details of Tier 4 guidance can be found on the government’s website (

Our thoughts are with all of our members, grounds and businesses in these difficult and challenging times.
