Cannington Clays

Clay shooting at Cannington Park takes place on Thursday evenings through the Summer (see the Fixtures page for dates), starting at 17:00 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.
