Young Guns Academy
We are passionate about making shooting accessible to all, and encourage everyone to come and have a go. Our Young Guns Academy runs throughout the school holidays enabling young shots aged 9-18 to have a go at shooting, meet new people and have fun.
With shooting becoming an increasingly popular sport amongst the ladies, we hold a number of exclusive ladies shooting days where like-minded individuals can meet and experience the thrill of shooting clays. We have been nominated as the favourite meet for the Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club who meet with us three times a year. Keep an eye on our fixtures list for 2015 dates.
