Where to go shooting

Whether you’re new to the sport and looking for some instruction to get you started, or you’re a seasoned shooter looking for somewhere to practice, here in the North West we benefit from a wealth of clay shooting grounds where you can arrange expert tuition and go to practice and compete.
