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!

GOOD NEWS – we’re returning to nearly-normal opening from MONDAY 15th June 2020!

SHOOTING GROUNDS

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!

THE SHOP

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

  • If you or anyone in your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attend the grounds.
  • We recommend that you wear a face covering whilst shooting and whilst in the shop, if you’re able to do so, to help protect our staff and other customers.
  • Follow the advice of all staff throughout your visit – you may be asked to leave the site if you do not, or if you put yourself or others at risk during your visit.
  • Please use the hand sanitiser provided on each stand.
  • Only one person in a stand at a time, and please wait for the other shooter to come out before you enter the stand - ensure you keep appropriate safe distancing from all other shooters and staff at all times.

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!

Olivia Tullett challenge review

Olivia Tullett challenge review

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 :)
