Facilities at the ground have recently been updated, we have a skeet range, a down the line layout & a 120 + bird sporting layout open. The targets on the sporting layout are changed regularly, there are 3 or 4 multitrap stands open with 8 different targets on each.
The skeet, DTL & sporting layouts have Claymate solo release equipment installed, so that you can shoot on your own without having to press release buttons at the same time.
Cartridges & refreshments are available during opening hours. Clays cost 36p each but you'll get 5% off your tally to cover any no birds ( whether you have any or not ). Plas or F/wad cartridges can be used, maximum load 28gm, maximum shot size 6.
New faces are always welcome.
Individual tuition costs £84 (approx 1 hour ) including 50 clays & 50 cartridges on weekdays only.
