Bridgwater Shooting Club

Welcome to Bridgwater Shooting Club


Following the recent Government announcement, it looks promising that we can return to shooting on schedule, albeit with some restrictions.

The Committee will meet on 18th March to make final arrangements, but you should expect the first few weeks to follow strict rules on grouping.

These may include:-

• A limit on the group size
• Maintaining social distancing
• Not approaching the clubhouse/desk until the space is clear
• No refreshments and gathering at the clubhouse once shooting is completed

These arrangements will be reviewed weekly and will probably change regularly in line with national guidelines.

We would ask you to support us in making this work and with any luck, all restrictions will be lifted before too long.

Please check back at the end of March for an update.


If you have not received the Renewal Letter by email it can be seen here - Renewal Letter.
The Membership Application Form for 2021 is available HERE.


Cannington Clays

Clay shooting at Cannington Park takes place on Thursday evenings through the Summer (see the Fixtures page for dates), starting as soon as all the stands are set up and we are ready, and finishing before dusk in order to give us time to clear away. Additional shoots may be added for Christmas etc. We can supply a club shotgun or two by prior arrangement (see Contact Us).


The shooting layout varies every week. On the afternoon of shooting, the course of 5 or 6 stands, giving rounds of 50 targets, is set up by those club members available, usually a group of dedicated volunteers who kindly give up their time to ensure set up is completed ready for the evening shoot, with a view to making it different to the previous week/s, so there are always new target presentations to consider – some easier and some not! No two shooting sessions will be the same.


If any members feel that they can perhaps add a different stand layout, they are welcome to come along in the afternoon at 14:00 and join in.


After the shoot members are encouraged to stay for a cuppa and then help clear up and collect unbroken clays, which are recovered for future use.


Please note that our permission demands that we only use fibre wads - clay shooters found to be using plastic wads will be asked to leave. Also note that the ground is rented out for sheep pasture, and the landlord's wishes are that dogs must be kept on leads if brought onto the shooting ground.


Ear and eye protection must be worn when shooting (see the Club Rules). Any person found not to be compliant will be asked to wear the correct equipment before continuing.


We are a very friendly club and non-members are always made welcome. Please note that non-Certificate holders (or new Certificate holders) will only be able to shoot with an experienced Club member to ensure the safety of all.
