We recommend shooting at 50 clays each, which is enough shooting to really feel that you’ve had a good go at it, & hopefully get the bug!
There are several very nice country pubs with restaurants in the local village of Fyfield that can provide catering for your event either before or after the shooting.
Small gauge guns are available for ladies to use if required.
Events start between approx 10:30am & 2:00pm & last around 2.5 hours depending on the number of guests in the party & our opening hours on the day of your event.
We can open for exclusive use on some Mondays & Tuesdays, please ask for details.
We have a clubhouse that can provide hot & cold drinks (non alcoholic) & snacks at the ground.
Typical shooting format as follows:
• Meet the instructor/s
• Safety / gun handling briefing
• 20 practice shots each (10 shots each in rotation)
• 30 competition shots each (10’s in rotation again)
• Personalised trophies presented to 1st, 2nd (& / or perhaps last if required).
The cost for the above is:
£51 + VAT per guest for groups of 5 +
£54 + VAT per guest for groups of under 5
We can provide archery for your event, either as part of the competition, or as an optional have – a – go.
If you’d like to book we need to know how many there will be in your group. Please book for the minimum number of definite attendees that you have as the number that you book for will be the number that we will charge you for. You can usually add a few more to the group nearer the time. A deposit of 25% is required to secure the booking.

Feedback below from a private event in July 2015, on a Tuesday, so private use of the shooting ground, for News UK,
I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you to you and Darren for such an amazing day.
I’ve been lucky enough to do a fair bit of corporate entertaining over the years but very few things have come close to the enjoyment of today.
I am sure we will be back in the future and I will certainly be recommending you guys to any clients who ask.
Ps: letting me win was a nice bonus!!!
