If you would like to start clay pigeon shooting, we can provide everything you need to get underway. A common misconception is that you need a shotgun licence to be able to participate in the sport. This is not the case as our ground benefits from an exemption certificate which means you can come and use one of our guns, with one of our coaches, without the need to have a license. Our beginners coaching package will ensure you get away to the best, safest start in the sport and caters for everything, all that you need to bring along is your self.
We also offer an improvers coaching package, working with you specifically on your weaker targets and fine-tune your shooting.
At 12:00 noon following each Sunday shoot we will be running a coaching squad..
We have run this informally in the past and feedback has been very positive so we have decided to offer this to anyone who feel they may benefit. Shooters can either shoot the layout in the morning as normal and then join the coaching squad to concentrate on weaknesses/development areas arising from the first round or indeed turn up purely for the coaching squad and shoot the layout afresh, benefiting from the coaching and tuition around the course.
In the past shooters have benefitted from being part of the coaching squad and shooting with other's wishing to develop as hints, tips and learnings can be shared and applied which really helps.The squad will have a maximum of 5 shooters within it, prior booking is essential however if on the day you wish to join the squad we will try to accommodate you if we have space.
Price: £45 per shooter which includes 100 clays and the coaching (gun hire and cartridges at extra cost).
We can cater for any event at Bowcombe View Shooting Ground, whether it is a group on a Stag or Hen party, corporate team building or a works outing. We can tailor an event for any number of participants and any number of clays and cartridges provided. It doesn't matter if the particpants have shot clay pigeons before or not, we can provide the guns, cartridges and tuition to ensure your event is a real success and is enjoyed by participants of all capabilities
The cost of such an event will vary depending on the numbers of particpants and the amount of clays and cartridges you would like to shoot, so it is best to get in touch to get an understanding of cost. Please click here for our contact details.
Our gift vouchers are a popular present throughout the year, for any occasion. We can provide vouchers for normal shoot days for a specific amount of clays for the regular shooter (Sporting and Skeet), Have-A-Go for first time shooters, coaching packages at three levels (Beginner, Improvers and Fine Tuning) and the Game Shooter Winter Warm-Up package. If you have a specific package that you would like tailored for the recipient/s, just let us know. Please contact us for details.
