What our clients say…

“Best clay shooting ground in the UK without doubt.”

“I am a member of the ground and I love it. Staff are so friendly and willing to help.”

“A first class day in beautiful surroundings with world class instruction.”

“Very enjoyable time – great targets and instruction.”

“Having been a member of the club for over 10 years, it has gone from strength to strength. Continuous improvements keep the stands evolving all the time, providing constant challenge. The team are wonderfully welcoming, making a morning’s shooting a real pleasure.”

“Highly recommended! From my first lesson to becoming a supremely average shot, E.J. Churchill has provided many hours of relaxation, fun and laughter for me!”

“E.J. Churchill combines excellent shooting facilities with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.”

“Welcoming, friendly and very supportive staff. Superb shooting ground, excellent facilities, shop etc. As a new member I have received great instruction, help in gun purchase and enjoyed the personal club atmosphere.”

“Stunning surroundings, brilliant targets and a fabulous set of people.”

“Very good ground, always like shooting here.”

Despite the terrible traffic meaning that I was half an hour late for my lesson with Mark Marshall, both the girls at reception and Mark Marshall were extremely understanding and managed to move my appointment to suit. Mark’s examination of my shooting technique and advice on how to improve i’m sure will have positive results with my future scores. Looking forward to shooting at my first ever CPSA event at E.J. Churchill in November 2014.”

“Fantastic day today. Big thank you to all staff for making it a great day. Brilliant venue.”

“Amazing venue, very organised and very well maintained. Staff are professional, friendly and attentive. 10/10″

“Best clays ever.”
