GOOD NEWS - We are opening again on Wednesday 2nd December 2020 – thank you to everyone for your patience, support and kind words through lockdown – we`re all looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible before Christmas!
Please ensure that social distancing & government guidelines are adhered to at all times, including rules about travel between Tiers, and DO NOT visit us if you are currently in Tier 3 restrictions, or if you are feeling unwell in any way.
Here are the rules for the TSC Competitions in 2020 - these include important Covid19-specific rules and instructions, so please do take the time read these before you arrive..
The TSC Winter Series is running again this year through September, October and November!
See below for more details.
Due to COVID-19 we`re not going to be able to run the full TSC series for 2020, and we`re sad to say we`ll therefore also be unable to offer our usual prizes, including the famous car giveaway.
We`re still though hoping to run the competitions from September onwards - see below for more details, and we hope you`ll still come and shoot with us this year!
On Saturday 5th September 2020 we`re holding the Philippa Stroud Clay Shoot, in aid of The Brian Tumour Charity
This year we have a 100-bird sporting competition, with hourly slots from 10am to 3pm, and squads of up to 5 people.
Booking-in details and prizes to be announced soon!
COVID-19 UPDATE: 13th June 2020
GOOD NEWS – we’re returning to nearly-normal opening from MONDAY 15th June 2020!
We`ll continue to take bookings by phone, and you’ll be able to make payment at time of booking or by credit/debit card on arrival at the shop. We’ll be offering 100 sporting, using our usual caddy system, as well as opening the DTL and Rabbit Mania too. We’re still unable to offer any gun hire due to sanitisation limitations. Trying guns will be possible, but only by appointment – so please give us a call to discuss. Caddy groups will be up to 5 people per group, all observing social distancing. Cartridges and all usual accessories, clothing etc. will be available for purchase from the Shop as usual.
To book-in, or if you have any queries, do give us a call on 01844 238308 – we’d love to see you soon here for a shoot!
We will be FULLY OPEN, with just a few practical restrictions, from Monday morning. We’ll be operating a one-way system through the shop – enter by the main front door, and exit through the side door – and we’ll be limiting the number of people in the shop at a time to ensure safe social distancing. So please be patient and follow the advice of staff, particularly at busy times. We’d also like to encourage everyone to wear a face covering within the shop if you’re able to do so, for the protection of our staff and other customers.
SOCIAL DISTANCING - etiquette whilst visiting
We hope you’ll be as keen to get shooting again as we are, and will come and visit us - we’d love to see you, and can’t wait to see you all here!

We`ve got grouse and driven targets all year as part of our lessons, and also available for practice Monday to Friday.
Raising money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, we`re holding a great charity shoot at the end of the month - so why not come and join us for a great shoot for a fantastic cause!
SATURDAY 28th September 2019
From 10am, last cards 3:15pm.
We had a great review from a very happy shot this week, having just shot the Olivia Tullett shoot!:
Shot this last week and cannot recommend it enough. Demanding and fantastic fun. It is not just the usual "game sim" set up where they put on a few flurries and name traps with a quarry species. You don`t load the gun and call "Pull". As well as a few more regular "pairs", there is a driven flurry and a grouse sequence which is really handy for practicing loading quickly and under pressure. The "jewel in the crown" is the walked-up section - much more demanding and realistic than last year`s set up (which was good anyway).
So if you want a good work out and warm-up for the coming game season, or if you just shoot clays and want to try something a little different - and less predictable ;) - this is well worth a "shot". We`re back for another go this weekend :)
See PDF below for the results from University Championships 2019, held on 20th March 2019:
