The Shooting

We are offering three categories of shooting to suit all levels of experience. Every category has some amazing prizes up for grabs for first, second and third place.

Novice Ladies £120.00

Novices are ladies who are very new to shooting or have never shot before. You’ll enjoy a fun introduction to the sport of clay shooting. Expert tuition will be given by our professional instructors and all equipment will be provided including a shotgun, ammunition, clays and all necessary safety wear.

Intermediate Ladies £70.00

Intermediate Shots are those that can shoot competently and safely and do not need to be accompanied by an instructor. You will shoot an 80 ‘Bird’ Sporting Competition over a course that is designed to be fun but challenging too. You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from us on the day (please note we are a fibre wad only ground).

Serious Shots £70.00

This one is for ladies with a CPSA Classification of C or above. You’ll shoot an 80 separate ‘Bird’ Sporting Competition over an original and challenging course. You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from us on the day (please note we are a fibre wad only ground).

You are more than welcome to book with friends (we pop you into squads of 5). Please note novices shoot a separate course but intermediate and serious shots shoot the same course together with different prize categories.
