Cambridgeshire Skeet 2023

The Cambridgeshire English Skeet championship was held at Priory Shooting Ground on 20 August and, despite clashing with the Ladies Football World Cup Final, attracted a good number of competitors. 

Competition was strong.  High gun was M Porter with 96/100. 

As he is not a Cambridgeshire shooter he was not able to take the Cambridgeshire Championship, but was the winner of the Bev Waller Cup which is presented to the high gun of the day. 

Six Cambridgeshire shooters shot 95/100 (!) and congratulations go to A Hallybone who won the shoot off for the championship and also took A class. 

Congratulations also go to the winners of the other categories and classes which were decided by countback where necessary: 

A Taylor – Men’s; 

A Wright – Veteran’s; 

K Moorbey – Ladies; 

E Lord – Junior’s and AA class; 

J Knight – B class; 

S Moorbey – C class. 

Well shot everyone. Thanks go to Natasha, John, referees and the other team members for all their hard work in running a successful shoot.

Young Shooters Day

The Cambridgeshire CPSA Committee is keen to encourage more young shooters to be involved in clay shooting in general and also to become involved in the county championship shoots and inter-county team shoots. With this in mind, and subject to there being sufficient interest, the Committee is looking to organise an open day on a Saturday in spring 2024 where young shooters (colts and juniors – ie shooters under the age of 21) have the opportunity to try a range of different disciplines – Skeet, DTL, ABT, sporting.  Experienced shooters will be on hand to coach and advise and it is planned that the day will include competitions.  The cost of the event will be kept as low as possible.

All participants will need to have access to their own gun as it will not be possible to loan/borrow one on the day and they will need to provide their own cartridges.

In order for the Committee to gauge the level of interest in such an event please would those who would be interested in attending send an email as soon as possible to and also include their age. The committee will then decide whether or not there is sufficient interest to move ahead with organising the event and a notice will be posted on here and on Facebook accordingly.
