Have-A-Go

We are planning to reopen the Have-a-Go scheme from Sunday 12th September

Those wishing to take part should contact us with a preferred date.

Our Have-A-Go scheme is specifically designed for those who have always fancied trying clay shooting, but have never done so before, or may have done but some time ago. This scheme is designed for individuals or small groups of up to 5 people and only operates on dates published in our fixture list.

Those interested in this scheme should contact us for further information and availability.

 

So what is Have-A-Go?

 

This is where the complete novice can come along and try our sport.

With one to one tuition, this is the ideal way to get a taste of clay shooting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This can be offered to individuals and small groups of up to five people. Please contact us if this may be of interest to you.

 

 

 

 

We will provide you with everything you need to try this exciting sport. Initially there will be a safety briefing and you will be required to complete some paperwork for insurance purposes. We must also ask that each person wishing to shoot must complete a Section 21 statement form. (Details of Section 21 can be found below)

Following this, you will be guided at all times during your visit by one of our experienced team. We are sure you will have an enjoyable time with us and have something to tell your friends about!

Please note, on the grounds of safety, any person who is, or is suspected of being under the influence of drink, drugs or other substances will not be allowed to shoot or handle firearms.
