Bridgwater Shooting Club

Welcome to Bridgwater Shooting Club


Coronavirus Update

The Committee arranged a 100 target shooting day for existing members at Ling Shooting, on Saturday 1st August 2020. Scores available here. Another day has been arranged in the same format, on 19th September 2020, starting at 12pm until approximately 3pm. As before, this will be limited to 30 places and will require booking directly with Abbey Ling on the following number - +44(0)7789 480298. Please mention that you wish to book for the Bridgwater Shooting Club group and pay the £30 fee by card over the phone.
Please Note:
The Committee have now officially abandoned any attempt to open the ground for Thursday shooting this year. As detailed above, we have organized events to take place at Ling Shooting to help fill the gap.
Sunday shoots will still take place in both November and December. Please watch this space closer to the time for details.

2020 AGM

Details will be posted here on how we will run the AGM this year. Clearly, there will be less business arising from this season, but we will need to discuss matters for next year.
Any member who wishes to submit suggestions or questions to the Committee, for discussion at the AGM may do so by using the Contact Us form on the website.
We thank you for your patience and wish for better news next season.


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) and coaching may available from our BASC registered coach, Mike Hill - also by prior arrangement.


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.
