About Us

Find out more about Southdown!

Southdown Gun Club was founded in 1984 and is set in the beautiful Southdown National Park. We have some of the best fantastic shooting facilities in the UK, we’re a CPSA Premier Ground and have several qualified shooting instructors and an on-site gun shop for all of your shooting needs.

Having grown over the past 34 years, Southdown is now an award-winning shooting school with the accolade of being the Nations Favourite Shooting Ground, five years in a row. We are passionate about shooting and want the sport to be inclusive, so being a part of the Sussex community is important to us.

We offer practice Wednesday to Saturday and some Sunday’s when we are not running a competition. There is something for everyone, with several ranges including 12 stands of Sporting, 25 Bird FITASC, 25 Bird Compak/Sportrap, Skeet, DTL and a high bird driven 5 man flush. For beginners, there are have-a-go stands to start on, before progressing to the shooting school which is designed to take you through everything from gun safety, gun fit, before hitting your first clays.

Come and try a have-a-go session, or why not bring your friends for a day out with a clay pigeon experience, archery, axe throwing and more.

At Southdown we are pleased to host a large number of special events, including corporate entertainment days, charity events and staff days. Our on-site caterers are available with daily specials or bespoke menus to suit your requirements and we have a selection of ways to make your day special, including meeting room facilities, marquee hire availability or anything else that will help your event run smoothly.

Why not visit Southdown to see what we have to offer – we are four miles north of Worthing, open Wednesday–Saturday with registered competitions on Sunday.
