What can I expect from a Clay Shooting experience?
In short, to have a lot of fun! As an idea of how a typical event runs: following tea and coffee, guest are given a safety briefing and split into teams. Each group is assigned one of our friendly and experienced instructors, and then moves around the ground to shoot a number of different clay pigeon targets. We can also include a fun, competitive element which is great for team-building days.
What do I need to bring?
There is no need to bring anything with you. The following is included in ALL our Corporate Hospitality experiences:
- Dedicated Events Manager to ensure your event runs smoothly
- Professional tuition from our fully qualified, friendly instructors
- Gun hire, clays and cartridges and all safety equipment

- Public liability Insurance
What happens if it rains?
We have a number of covered stands so guests can enjoy the day whatever the weather.
What do I need to wear?
We’ve got gravel walkways, so no need for wellies or anything, even if the weather is being British. Comfortable, casual clothing and reasonably sensible footwear is about all that’s required. People are welcome to bring their own caps and glasses/sunglasses if they wish, though we supply caps and glasses for everyone.
What about recoil?
This is a commonly asked question and many people are worried about whether shooting a shotgun will hurt. If you have an appropriate gun and are holding it correctly, it shouldn’t. We use special low recoil cartridges and have small bore guns with short stocks available. If you do feel like there is a lot of recoil, ask your instructor and we will provide an extra pad for your shoulder.
