We offer 2 options. A “Taster” session, which is for a complete beginner, and is on a “have a go” basis, and secondly we offer “lessons”.  Lessons are far more structured and are for people serious about taking up the sport, or for shooters looking to improve.  Both options (Tasters/Lessons) are with an instructor and need to be pre-booked and pre-paid, please see our tuition page for further details or contact us to book in!

Please provide your CPSA number when booking in.  If you are not a CPSA member, you can still shoot a Registered event, but will be entered on a T/O (target only) basis, and will be unable to claim any prize money/trophies.

Legal

Yes you can.  However you must be accompanied by either a member of our staff (instructor) or someone who holds a valid shotgun certificate.  If you would like to have a go at clay target shooting, you can book in with us for a “taster” session or “lesson”.  Please contact us for further details. (You will also need to sign a section 21 disclaimer prior to commencing your session).

There is no minimum age for clay shooting as such.  The main consideration is safety.  The child must have suitable upper body strength to hold a gun safely.  As a guide we would recommend 10 years and over for clay target shooting using a shotgun.  Air rifle shooting may be an option for younger children.

If you have a valid shotgun certificate you can hire a gun from us.  If you do not hold a certificate you are unable to hire guns from us.
