    • " I thoroughly enjoyed the clay shooting session from start to finish. I had 1:1 tuition with an excellent and knowledgeable instructor. The session was allowed to run at my own pace, and I never felt rushed at any time. On the contrary, the instructor could not have been more attentive. Best of all, for my first ever clay shoot I hit well over 50% of the targets. An excellent experience and one I would heartily recommend."

      We were meet by Frank as our parties supervision, what a lovely man!! He made everyone feel at ease & welcome .
      We had all the serious stuff 1st a talk about what we would be doing and shown how the gun worked etc with a few jokes thrown in.

      Then it was off to shoot. We had 3 types of clay to shoot from easy to hard & Frank coached us through all the way, even finding time to muck in with all the jokes with the lads. Frank made the experience for us all, fun & exciting & made us all feel like what ever ability we were, we could all really enjoy the time shooting.

My husband and daughter had attended a clay pigeon shooting event a couple of years ago and the set up at Meadowhead Clayshooting School was truly impressive the safety and equipment run through and being measured for equipment individually was very professional and as a nervous first time shooter Frank's kind supportive approach enabled me to actually shoot and hit I might add a clay! The day was booked by our daughter to celebrate her Dad's 60th and they really enjoyed the experience and managed to develop and enjoy their new skills and are planning to return to the school for further instruction and fun!
      Thanks again to Frank a truly amazing day a wonderful memory for us as a family
