The Purdey Cup

The Purdey Cup is designed for game shots and is the first competition of its kind. This competition is now open for EVERYONE to shoot with any make of shotgun. 

Shoot the Purdey Cup alone for £60, or bring a friend and pay £50 each. All entrants will receive a limited edition Purdey Cup cap (worth £25) and lapel badge.

Due to the effects of COVID and many people not being able to make it to the Royal Berkshire to try their hand at this exciting competition, we have decided to extend it until 1st February 2022.

The competition comprises 100 “Birds” shot over four thrilling sequences, each one of which simulates a different and iconic specie of game bird: Driven Grouse, Hedgerow Partridge, High Pheasant and Rock Pigeon (a new stand created for this competition).

Each month, the highest score shot in each category will win a bottle of wine from Berry Brothers & Rudd.  The monthly winners will be invited to a ‘grand final’ in May 2022 to compete a stunning perpetual trophy, Purdey clothing, game cartridges and more fine wines.

We have designed a course that game shooters will enjoy and have set a score that we feel an accomplished shot will be able to achieve, known as the “Par Score”.  Anybody shooting “Par” or better, will be entered into a prize draw.

The prize draw will be held at the grand final in May 2022. We will draw from two categories’;

Those shooting with a Purdey shotgun- the winner will be invited to join Purdey, as their guest, for a day’s game shooting, organised by The Royal Berkshire Sporting Agency in the 2022/23 season.

Those shooting with any other make of shotgun- the winner will receive  peg for two people at a Really Wild Clay Day at an event of your choice in the 2022 simulated season.

The Purdey Cup will continue as soon as we are able to welcome you back to shoot at our grounds post lockdown.
