Welcome to Southdown Gun Club & Shooting School
Southdown Gun Club & Shooting School is located in the heart of West Sussex, just North of Worthing, near Findon. Established in 1984 we celebrated 30 years of Shooting in 2014. Probably one of the few grounds in the country that can boast our doors have been open for 32 years!! We’ve weathered the storm of two recessions and following significant investment in the last 5+ years we’re here to stay!! (read more on our news page). Southdown is one of the largest shooting grounds in the country and is accredited with CPSA Premier status.
Membership is not essential, we are open to all clay shooters, but being a member does have its benefits, which include valuable practice round discounts, free targets and other special offers, which you will find, listed on our membership page.
Southdown is a firm favorite with clay pigeon shooters of all abilities. For the experienced shooter there is Skeet, DTL, ABT, Compak, FITASC, our famous English Sporting practice layout, high tower & grouse butt. We also have a pattern plate and can assist with gun fit. We operate a Promatic Claymate system which is easy to use; allows you to pay-&-play and no pre-booking necessary. We have 20 sporting positions to set our practice course on, so lots of room and options to make our 10 practice stands varied on a regular basis.
The Compak/FITASC deck includes a wireless release system with multi-function shooting facility and we’ve just installed a Canterbery Voice Release System on the DTL.
With regular registered competitions for all disciplines including English Sporting, FITASC, Compak & Sportrap offering cash prizes in all classes.
If you are new to shooting we have starter stands and qualified instructors who will soon have you confidently breaking clays. This is coupled with our activity centre where we also offer Corporate days and clay shooting experiences for stag, hen & birthday parties.
We are the best clay shooting ground in the South, so come and see us soon, we’ll be happy to show you around.
