The Royal Berkshire Grouse Challenge

This special competition celebrated the much anticipated start of the grouse season and ran for four weeks, commencing on 4th August.

We are delighted to announce the winners now and wish to send our heartiest congratulations to Chris Childerhouse for his amazing performances, both with an over and under and side by side, which have seen him take home prizes in both categories. Our thanks to all those who took part - the feedback we got was that everyone enjoyed the challenge and we look forward to seeing you all again at the School soon.

Taken as part of any guided round or lesson, this 50 bird competition is made up of two 25 bird sequences; one in the famous J&B Grouse Butt and the other on our new Purdey Grouse Moor.

Our four weekly winners will each receive 250 Gamebore Dark Storm Quad Seal cartridges and a bottle of Taittinger champagne.

Our overall highest score will receive a morning for four people here at the Royal Berkshire enjoying all that our grounds have to offer, followed by lunch in our beautiful Farmhouse.

Purdey are gifting their bestselling Bembridge Tweed Shooting Vest to the top scoring entrant shooting with a side by side shotgun.
