Southdown Online Booking Portal – How To
THE ON-LINE PORTAL WILL BE AVAILABLE TO USE FROM SUNDAY 31ST MAY AFTER 4PM
Practice is only available as pre-book, pre-pay through our on-line booking portal, maximum 2ppl per time slot.
All payments must be made a time of booking so before proceeding check with your shooting partner what day, time, discipline(s) they want to shoot.
You can book one or more practice disciplines:
- Sporting (100 targets)
- Skeet (25 targets)
- FITASC (25 targets, one or two layouts)
- Sportrap (25 targets, one or two layouts)
If you wish to shoot both FITASC or Sportrap layouts you need to book them separately. Don’t forget to allow 20 mins between the first and second layout booking so you can shoot the layouts one after the other.
Remember if a time slot is shaded out it means that time is not available or has been booked by someone else. For privacy reasons the system may not show their name.
If you wish to book more than 2ppl in, you need to book two (or more) consecutive time slots. For example: if you wish to book 4ppl in for sporting you’d book the first two in at say 10.30am followed by the second two at 10.40am

NOT GOT A PAYPAL ACCOUNT?
Don’t worry, follow the same process to the payment point but when the screen comes up for PayPal login simply click ‘pay with debit or credit card’ and follow instructions. You’ll see the card payment option at the bottom of the screen.
If you don’t see this option, it’s probably because PayPal automatically hide the button to try to encourage you to pay using their system. Two workarounds:
If you only see’s the ‘Create an account’ button click on that … The page that appears should allow you to fill in your card details and choose not to create an account at the bottom of the form. This is the same as the ‘Pay by Card’ option, just named slightly differently.
Or, you should be able to follow the exact same process in ‘Private Mode’ or ‘Incognito Mode’ in your browser. This will trick PayPal into thinking you are a new customer and automatically show the ‘Pay by Credit / Debit Card’ option
On completion of your order you’ll receive a confirmation email (if you don’t see email in your in-box please check spam). The email will confirm your booking and state that if you need ammo please email us on email@example.com confirming your name, day/time your shooting, what ammo you need to purchase and your contact number. We’ll make a note of your ammo needs and sort this out on the day of your shoot, including payment.
