About

Clay Shooting: There is little to equal the excitement and sense of achievement of "smoking" your first clay, and people almost always achieve more than they expect, you will remember this experience forever.

Air Rifles: We have the traditional round targets for scoring in the competition as well as "drop down" targets at various distances. Learn how to take aim, hold it steady, then gently squeeze the trigger and hit centre!

Archery: Robin Hood time... Our range requires both skill and steady nerves to hit "gold". Our bows are light and easy to use but can still send an arrow "swift and true".

All the above are suitable for individuals of 8 years upwards both male and female.

4x4 off road: Steep slopes and declines, seesaw, ruts and mud!

Quad Bikes: Our quad bike assault course is unique. Progress onto our nature trail, and work your way through all the twists and turns of the course, nature, man and machine!

Dune Buggies: Twin seat all terrain buggies are simply enormous fun. Our tight and twisting course means that it takes all your nerve to keep to the shortest line.

All motorised events are suitable for both men and women 16 years and above.
