We are now offering party bookings for Saturdays and Sundays. All members of the party must be 21 years of age, food and drink is available after the shooting. Please contact us for more information.
Just a quick post to say that we have just employed an accountant in darlington. Darlington are a local town to us and have some excellent business located their. A friend told recommended a company to us and we can see why. Superb service and advice from the get go. We have been really busy this year, especially since the Olympics. Interest in clay shooting has never been higher and we are lucky enough to be reaping the rewards of that. This is why we decided to bring an expert on board to help us with the financial aspect so we can continue to focus on providing our customers with an excellent experience when they visit us.
Congratulations to James who shot a remarkable 19/20 targets on Saturday. This is the highest score we have had since we launched! The most amazing thing is James has only been shooting for 3 months. At this rate he will be our next olympic champion!
Had a few people asking me about this recently. As some of you know I earn a bit of extra coin through matched betting. I use a website that makes it easy for non gambling experts like me to be able to make a profit.
Please contact us prior to your visit if you are interested so we can plan for the numbers attending. All equipment will be provided for you. We do not permit the use of personal shot guns or any other fire arms so please do not bring them. Class will be from 10-12 and will cost £25 per person.
London 2012 was a real boost for the sport of trap shooting in the UK. Our membership numbers went through the roof. So here’s a video to remind you all of why it was so special. As soon as the Brazil video is available we will be sure to post it.
Our building has been getting subjected to the County Durham weather for many years. It’s time for some repairs. The cladding needs repairing and respraying so we contacted local experts http://spray-clad.co.uk to come and sort us out. They started by repairing our panels and then respraying our shop front. The shop front spraying took a couple of days but the end result was well worth the wait. Customers commented on it straight away.
If you are in the need of a cladding repair company we can fully recommend spray clad. We like to promote local businesses here but would only ever do so if they are first class and these guys were.
We expect these to be really popular after the success of our athletes at the Olympic games in Rio so if you are interested please reserve your place ASAP. The classes will run on saturday mornings from 10am-11am and will cost £7 for the hour. That includes all your ammunition and clay pigeons.
Great Britain’s Steven Scott beat compatriot Tim Kneale to win the bronze medal in the men’s Olympic double trap shooting event.
Scott’s perfect score of 30 against Kneale’s 28 secured Britain their second Rio shooting medal, after Ed Ling’s trap bronze on day three.
“I can’t describe what this means, but I’ve worked my butt off,” Scott said.
Kuwaiti Fehaid Aldeehani beat Italy’s Marco Innocenti 26-24 in the gold medal final at the Olympic Shooting Centre.
Australian world number one James Willett was eliminated following a shoot-off against Scott and Kneale.
We were all watching and very excited to be watching shooting on tv!
Things are moving along nicely at the shooting school. Unfortunately the building we bought has seen better times, it’s great inside but the outside is really scruffy. We contacted a local company http://spraytechnologiesaerosols.com and asked their advice on what we could do to smarten it up. They provided us with some amazing spray paints from the RAL range (it’s a colour range a bit like pantone), we’d never used spray paints before so they came out and gave us a demo. It was so easy to do! Our building looks amazing now, we have sprayed it the blue and white like on our logo so it looks really professional. RAL spray paints are apparently very popular and even more popular than the pantone colours, I can see why as they really pop when you get them sprayed onto a clean surface.
Spray Tech sell nationally so check out their website. The spray paints are really high quality. I will post some pictures once I get my camera working. We are really excited here at the shooting school as things seem to be moving on every day, we had some new members join yesterday who had never fired a gun before and now seem as hooked as we are on trap shooting.
We were so thrilled with the work spray technologies had done for us I said I’d write them a little blog on our site. We also invited the staff out for a trap shooting session so we look forward to seeing them soon.
We have had an exciting day here at the Clay shooting! Lots of brand new equipment was delivered for our members and staff to use. We have had great fun setting up the new traps and trying them out. Pics coming soon!
Our introductory days will be starting soon!
Many people are put off this sport as they think they need to be a gun owner, have a fancy trap thrower and own a great big area to practice in. That isn’t true, by being a member of a club like ours you can just bring yourself, use our equipment in a safe environment and just have fun. We will be offering free trial days very soon once we get everything in place so keep checking back for more information.
This website aims to teach you everything you need to know about clay target shooting. We have recently opened a new shooting school in Durham and will be using this site to keep interested parties up to date with what is happening with our new venture.
