Clay shooting is ever growing in popularity. It is the sport of shooting flying clay targets with a shotgun. It is safe, exciting, challenging and fun. Hitting the target requires skill, timing and hand- eye coordination, but there’s nothing quite like that feeling when you pull the trigger and see the target explode into a million pieces! Clay shooting is a great leveller – it’s a sport that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age and physical ability. Men, women and youngsters compete together on equal terms. Parents and youngsters can go shooting together, spending time outdoors, enjoying a shared challenge and bit of friendly rivalry.
