Shooting Grounds - clay pigeon shooting north west south and east.

Shooting grounds can be found all over the UK and on the whole found to specialise in Clay Pigeon Shooting. Shooting grounds can provide an easy, fun and an inexpensive outdoor pursuit, from the absolute beginner to the professional shooter. Many shooting grounds also cater for Stag Parties, Hen Parties, Corporate Entertainment, Charity Events or team building events. Shooting grounds can also offer tuition and practice and organise special events for clay pigeon shooting. There are several different styles of clay pigeon shooting; the most common are listed below: With clay pigeon shooting north west being very popular.

Down the Line (DTL);

This is a very popular clay shooting discipline that many shooting grounds adopt. Targets are thrown to a distance of 45 to 50 metres at a fixed height of approximately 2.75m and with a horizontal 'spread' of up to 22 degrees either side of the centre line. Each competitor shoots at a single target in turn, but without moving from the stand until they have shot five targets. Then they all move one place to the right, and continue to do so until they have all completed a standard round of 25 targets. Scoring of each target is 3 points for a first barrel kill, 2 points for a second barrel kill and 0 for a miss (maximum 75 points per round). Variations of this discipline are: Single Barrel, Double Rise and Handicap-by-Distance. Possibly the most popular entry level discipline and competitors often go on to the most exacting discipline of Olympic Trap.

Automatic Ball Trap (ABT);

A simpler and cheaper to install variation of Olympic Trap where only one trap is used and target variation is obtained by the continuous oscillation of the trap in both horizontal and vertical directions in order to give the same spread of targets as in Olympic Trap. Similarly, the targets are also thrown to a maximum of 70-75 metres.

English Skeet (ESK);

In this discipline a standard round of 25 targets are shot from 7 stations in a semicircle. At the ends of the semicircle are the High and Low trap houses from which targets are released on a fixed trajectory and within defined limits. A set combination of singles and doubles are shot from each station and scored on the basis of 1 point per target hit. The gun position is optional (i.e. either pre-mounted or out of the shoulder (gun down) when the target is called) and the targets are released immediately upon the shooter's call. Competitions consist of shooting 100 targets over 4 rounds.

English Sporting (ESP);

This being the most popular discipline having an almost infinite variety of 'stands'. Shooting grounds build a course that will feature a given number of stands (usually a minimum of 10 in the case of most shooting grounds) each of which has a predetermined number of targets, all travelling along the same path and speed, most stands will have a mix of report pairs (one target released then second target released on the report of the first shot) or simultaneous pairs (two targets released at the same time) The flight of the targets should try to simulate game quarry e.g. Driven Pheasant, Springing Teal, Crossing Pigeon, Bolting Rabbit etc. and include an assortment of clay sizes, standard, midi, mini, battue etc.


International FITASC Sporting gives a much greater variety of targets in terms of trajectory and speed, and is shot by squads of six competitors in rounds of 25 targets at a time. There are also other formats such as Compak Sporting, which as its name suggests can be fitted into a small area such as a Skeet Range. The shooting positions are five cages in a line and a “menu” is shot which typically will include a variety of single targets, report pairs and simultaneous pairs, five targets per cage making a round of twenty five targets.
