The West Mendip Soaring Association (WMSA) hold two open competitions (entry by members and non-members) and up to nine club competitions (members only) each year.

Open Competitions attract people from long distances who want to test their flying skills and / or building skills against other competitors. Crook Peak is very well suited for holding open competitions due to the fact that we can fly in any wind direction - we have a suitable slope for every point of the compass all within a few minutes walk from 'The Peak'.  Competitors hate nothing more than travelling to a slope only to find that the competition is cancelled because the wind is in the wrong direction.  This simply doesn't happen on Crook Peak. Open competitions will normally only be cancelled or postponed if the weather is very poor (hard rain or very strong winds).
