The A1 Shooting Ground is a family-run clay target shooting facility with English Sporting, Olympic Trap & Helice.


Beginners of all ages (children and adults) are welcome and we are able to provide all necessary equipment within our coaching packages to ensure that your first experience of Clay Target shooting is a memorable one.


For shotgun licence holders, we have a 14 stand English sporting facility, an Olympic Trap layout as well as the only fully-automatic Helice (ZZ) facility in the UK to accommodate every level of experience. We hold regular competitions in Helice/ZZ for those with a more competitive edge.



We are proud to have trained many national champions and Olympians in Olympic Trap shooting. Claudio Capaldo, the ground owner, is an accomplished coach who has acted as National Team coach in many Continental, World and the 2004 Olympic Games.
