One of the most common complaints from those who have tried shooting before is the recoil (i.e. the kick back from the gun) with some even having suffered from a bruised shoulder in the past. But, with instruction from our experienced team and the right equipment there is no need for anyone to be bruised by a shotgun. We use a range of different shotguns on our events to ensure everyone can take part regardless of age, sex, build or experience. We also use low power cartridges. At the distance you'll be shooting they have more than enough energy to shatter a clay pigeon, but are less powerful than the type used by most shooting grounds.
Our friendly team are experienced at teaching beginners and have great techniques to correct any issues faced when shooting. Because you get one-on-one coaching our instructors are always on hand to make sure you’re holding the gun properly and standing correctly. All personal protective equipment including eye and ear protection is provided to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone taking part.
Clay Pigeon Shooting is a fantastic country sport and is great fun for beginners, so well worth considering as an option for your next event. Why not combine this activity with some other country sports like Archery or Duck Herding for a truly rural retreat or with team building activities for something a little different?
Clay Pigeon Shooting is an outdoor activity which requires appropriate grounds that are suitable and safe to accommodate the activity. All of our venues that offer this activity have been assessed and approved by qualified instructors and firearms professionals to ensure you can enjoy the activity safely.
The setup time is 2 hours and this activity typically runs for around 2 hours. As a standalone activity this can accommodate groups of 10 - 40. For greater numbers this can be combined with other country sports or team building challenges as part of a larger activity package.
“I just wanted to say thank you for making our Team Building Day at Eaves Hall such a fantastic event. All the staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and I think I can honestly speak for everyone at Bender UK and say that it has been our best event to date!! The venue was stunning, the weather was glorious and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Ben, we thought the team building games were excellent and it was great to see our staff not only working together as a team but having a laugh and enjoying it at the same time. I honestly couldn’t fault the day and even the more sceptical members of staff who said they hate team building, came away smiling. 😊”
