What is Clay Shooting?

Clay shooting is the popular and growing sport of shooting flying clay targets with a shotgun.

It's safe, exciting, challenging and fun. Hitting the target requires skill, timing and hand-eye coordination, but there's nothing quite like that feeling when you pull the trigger and see the target explode into a million pieces!

You can enjoy clay shooting at any level, from local club shoots all the way through to national and international competitions and the Olympics.

Clay shooting is a great leveller - it's a sport that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age and physical ability. Men, women and youngsters compete together on equal terms.

That makes it ideal as a family activity. Parents and youngsters can go shooting together, spending time outdoors, enjoying a shared challenge and bit of friendly rivalry.

You'll find that clay shooting is a friendly and welcoming sport. Beginners are welcomed at shooting clubs up and down the country and you'll get plenty of friendly advice and encouragement from the regulars.
