Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay pigeon shootingFor the adventurous and competitive, why not try your hand at shooting a 12 gauge shot gun?

Clay pigeon shooting is the perfect way to test your aim while having to compete with time, as the clay only stays airborne for about 3 seconds. Our shooters are given clear instructions and guidance and no previous experience is required.
