Competitions & Events

As a CPSA club we are a regular venue for local and national shooting competitions. These will be advertised both here on the site and in the club house as well as on the CPSA website. During these competitions there is usually still access to trap on the ground though choice will inevitably be limited.

Throughout the year we also run our own club league tables and periodic seasonal competitions. These are open for free entry to club members with trophy, voucher and cash prizes. A great way to set yourself some goals if you want to improve your shooting, don’t worry if you are a novice, everyone has to start somewhere.

All results are posted on the site and in the club house as soon as possible after events.
