A message from CPSA CEO Iain Parker:
I’m happy to announce that E.J. Churchill’s have agreed to host our CPSA World English Sporting and Sportrap Championships 2020. My thanks to Sir Edward Dashwood and Rob Fenwick for inviting us back and I look forward to working on, developing, and delivering these 2020 CPSA Championships together.
The West Wycombe estate offers a unique setting with endless opportunities for the course setters and with E.J. Churchill's ground and clubhouse it is the perfect location for our World Championships.
I know course setters George Digweed and Sean Bramley will be spoilt for choice when it comes to putting on challenging courses for the world’s top shooters and over 1500 shooters from over 25 countries.
I’d also like to thank Rob and his team. We will be working closely with them over the coming 12 months to produce what I believe will be the best World Championships yet. We will be publishing details of the World Championships as we have them and opening booking on as usual in December on the CPSA website.
I look forward to seeing you there!
-Iain Parker, CPSA CEO

About the Championships:
The Championships will take place from 8-14 June 2020 and will include two world championships, one each for the disciplines of English Sporting and Sportrap. The event alternates every year between the CPSA in England and the National Sporting Clays Association in the USA. It attracts competitors from all over the world and is open to shooters of all levels.
E.J. Churchill Shooting Ground is part of West Wycombe Estate, the ancestral seat of the Dashwood baronets which is owned by Sir Edward Dashwood. This grand English estate gives the event a unique feeling of British tradition that is an additional draw for competitors.
Musto clothing and Gamebore cartridges will be headline sponsors, while there is exciting news that JCB will be supporting by providing lifts and equipment for creating interesting target presentations, and Promatic Traps will be providing the traps. The course will be set by George Digweed MBE, 26-time World Champion clay shooter, and Sean Bramley, who also holds World, European, and British titles. Over 1,500 shooters are expected to compete, from an estimated 25 countries.
The World English Sporting Championships will consist of 200 targets. In addition to the two world championships, a preliminary English Sporting course and a FITASC Sporting course will also run during the event.
