About Us

Taking place in over 400-acres of picturesque and breath-taking Gloucestershire countryside with our qualified instructors being on hand to guide you throughout the process and have you hitting clays in no time!

When you arrive at our Clay Pigeon Shooting venue, you’ll be provided with a full safety briefing from our qualified instructors whilst being kitted out with all the safety gear needed to participate.

Each event is instructor led on a one to one basis giving you just the information you need to hit clays. We pride ourselves on top notch instruction without unnecessary technical waffle or life stories from our instructors wasting your time. Our team have taught more than 5000 people to shoot clays over the last 20 years  and a high success rate of hit targets is the norm. Yes even if you have turned up convinced you will not hit anything!

In our years of experience ladies and gents shoot equally as well as each other and the shotgun doesn’t care who’s holding it.

We pride ourselves in matching the size of the gun to the individual to give you the most comfortable shooting experience possible. Shooting should not hurt or be a scary activity. All our events are fully insured with a hand picked team of instructors trained by a nationally qualified senior CPSA coach with years of experience between them

Nick Phillips-Holt

Senior CPSA coach

Nationally qualified instructor with over 21 years experience running Clay shooting. I get great enjoyment out of teaching people to hit their first moving target with a shotgun. Most people are apprehensive when they arrive and most think they wont hit anything. We have selected targets which over the years we have found at least one suits each person in the group and most excel at more. Every one leaves happy and pleasantly surprised at their first shooting experience.

Coaching for 3 years

I have shot with airguns and smallbore rifles for many years. Since retirement in 2009 I have shot in competitions for the County Association over two seasons and held the Chairman’s post of a large target shooting club for five years I have been helping with small groups at CCC for nearly three years and enjoy doing that almost as much as I enjoy my own shooting. I enjoy learning something every week!

Coaching for 3 years

Marianne has been shooting for approximately 5 years now and has an instructional background in horse riding. These skills have been particularly useful in helping to transition into clay pigeon coaching. As there are so few female instructors we are pleased she has chosen to join our friendly family team I have been helping with small groups at CCC for nearly three years and enjoy doing that almost as much as I enjoy my own shooting. I enjoy learning something every week!
