It’s a misconception that clay pigeon shooting is a sport for men only, there are a growing number of lady shooters, some of whom shoot for fun and some very talented lady shots who are successful at the very highest levels of competition shooting.
At Southdown we believe that clay pigeon shooting is an inclusive sport, that is great fun for everyone! Whether you are a beginner looking for a new hobby, or an experienced shot wanting to develop your skills. Taking tuition at the Southdown Shooting School is the obvious place to start, as we have a team of male and female instructors, all with professional qualifications.
The Southdown Shooting School is a private tuition area, where you will be able to receive one-to-one instruction and learn at your own pace. If you have your own gun we will be pleased for you to use it, however we also have a full range of club guns available. This, coupled with our special light load cartridge, a reduced recoil is guaranteed. The shooting school is open all year round and tuition is available Wednesday to Saturday and some Sundays if we are not holding a competition.
Start as you mean to go on…..
So with that in mind, particularly if you’re new to the sport, we strongly recommend you get professional tuition from a qualified instructor from the outset. This will ensure you develop good practice and avoid the need to undo bad habits at a later date.
