Welcome to Pointing WM

The West Midland Area will stage 14 meetings during the 2020/2021 season. Andoversford, Didmarton, Paxford, Knightwick, Shelfield Park and Woodford run one fixture while Maisemore Park stages three meetings and Chaddesley Corbett hosts five Point-to-Points.

THE WEST MIDLAND SEASON HAS NOW FINISHED AND WE START AGAIN IN NOVEMBER BUT UNDER A NEW TITLE “THE WEST MERCIAN AREA”.

IT WAS OUR INTENTION TO HOLD THE AWARDS EVENING ON 26TH JUNE, BUT THAT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AS IT WAS DEEMED TO EARLY FOR SUCH A LARGE GATHERING IMMEDIATELY AFTER LOCKDOWN.

WE ARE LOOKING TO REARRANGE AN EVENT IN THE AUTUMN AND WILL PUBLISH DETAILS AS SOON AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.

In line with the Government guidance for elite sports grounds and until further notice, admission to racecourses will be limited to participants, racehorse owners and essential raceday personnel only (although this can differ depending on local authority guidance). All attendees will need to observe the existing strict health and safety protocols outlined by the BHA and local and national government (see article published on 16th October).

All Point-to-Points will be run under Government/B.H.A. guide lines to ensure that all participants are provided with a safe environment. Both Maisemore Park and Chaddesley Corbett provide excellent viewing from all areas including the car parks.

There was no West Midland Area Championships during the 2019/20 season due to the Corona Virus outbreak and insufficient meetings being completed. We would like to thank our Area Sponsors for their continued support during this difficult period.
 
The West Midlands Area would like to thank the Harkaway Club for their kind donation towards the purchase of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for all West Midland Area Point-to-Points.
