!!!!! Statement from the CPSA!!!!!

The following email was sent to all CPSA clubs, grounds, and trade members on 14 May 2020, stating that the CPSA has now had the necessary assurances to recommend the re-opening of clay-shooting grounds, which will be of interest to all clay-shooters in England:

Dear Clubs, Grounds, and Trade Members,

Regarding the CPSA’s position on the opening of clay shooting grounds following the easing of restrictions from the 13th May for outdoor sports activities:

Over the past 48 hours we have been working with the Government, Police and other bodies to get the confirmation we needed under the latest Government guidance that it is possible to start shooting recreationally again within England.

Therefore, as the National Governing Body for the Sport of Clay Target Shooting in England, we are now satisfied that we can start a phased return to clay shooting with initially pay & play/practice and a return to competitive registered shoots in time.

Shooting grounds can re-open when they are ready and our members are now able to participate and enjoy the sport of clay target shooting recreationally while all following strict CV19 safety protocols and guidance.

Importantly, we have now also had confirmation from our insurers that our members are fully insured after considering the new guidance to get out and enjoy their sport again.

We have already issued comprehensive guidance to grounds to assist with their planning to implement the strict social distancing and safety measures to protect their staff, the shooters and our sport.

Yours sincerely,

Iain Parker

As soon as grounds open and resume with Registered Competition the Committee will look at the possibilities of holding some County Championships and Selections.

These might be on original dates as the shoot calendar previously published or on a different date or ground depending on the grounds shoot calendar.

Should the West Midlands Inter Counties Team shoots take place and No Team selections have taken place, Teams will be pick by Team Managers/ Committee based on known ability/averages and availability.
