Clay Shooting Experience

Wedgnock Shooting Ground at Adventure Sports has operated as a shooting ground for over 100 years and  is one of the Midlands' largest and best attended venues. Our reputation is built on providing both first time and regular shooters with a high quality shooting experience.

Anyone aged 13 years and over can have a go a clay shooting. We cater for individuals and groups who would like to have a go at clay shooting as well as shotgun licence holders.

Our covered shooting layouts include seating for spectators, making this a great activity for groups and parties.

For those who would like to try clay shooting we offer three options:

  • 20 shots for £35 per person Book Now

For regular shooters we offer Sporting (typically 18 stands), Sportrap, Skeet and DTL layouts, with many layouts covered for all-weather shooting. And all layouts are fitted with a Claymate system. We also have High Towers, which are a fantastic challenge, and can offer floodlit shooting in the winter months.

Clay Shooting

At Adventure Sports we've got a range of all weather shooting ranges that includes different stands, and a variety of challenging targets like driven clays (coming straight at you), rabbit clays that bounce along the ground, crossing targets, fast going away targets and the dreaded loopers!

Tuition is given whilst the other members of the group keep score and provide encouragement. Scores are kept throughout and a Top Gun prize is presented at the end!

If you'd like to learn more, we've got a fantastic guide to clay shooting with lots of helpful hints and tips, and if you're a more experienced shooter, you may want to head over to the Wedgnock Shooting Grounds page for more information about regular shoots and membership of our club.
