  • My girlfriend booked a shooting experience for us last year, we had so much fun that I then took my two boys (at the time aged 8 & 12) - once again superb. Since then I have been back multiple time with friends and to have lessons. If you are looking for a friendly, unpretentious, safe, welcoming club with fantastic instruction then this is it!

  • Booked in with my lad for his birthday, a clay-shoot experience. We had a great time, my lad enjoyed it. We were made to feel very welcome and had a laugh with one or two of the regulars - a good bunch! Dave, our tutor, was easy to follow with the instructions and very patient, would do it again.

  • Thanks for your hospitality yesterday. My brother and I really enjoyed shooting your ground, the stand lay-outs and target presentations. Very different, much better than we usually shoot and more challenging too! You have a great ground and I really enjoyed how you’d set it, particularly the first 5 stands through the gaps in the hedge row that provided target glimpse. You provided a great range of targets, so thank you.

  • Just wanted to thank you for a warm welcome and a fantastic experience for my Mum. The instructor was brilliant and both Mum and my two sons really enjoyed themselves. I will recommend you to all my family and friends.

  • A very nice and friendly club - I go most Sundays. The trap layout is very good with some testing shots.
