Welcome to The Cotswold Clay Club and Shooting School

October 2020 Update: We will not be open on the weekend of 8th November in respect for Rememberance Sunday. Otherwise, we are open as normal and observing current Covid19 Guidelines.
Outdoor sports like shooting are great because they allow you to keep your distance whilst also still enjoying yourself!

We will be open as normal until the government forces us to close.

The Cotswold Clay Club and Shooting School is located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold Countryside, only 20 minutes from Cheltenham and Cirencester. 

Run by Nick Phillips-Holt, we are open everyday for pre-booked groups and shooting experiences* and every Sunday to everyone from novices, to experienced shots and also for shooting experiences. You will always be given a warm welcome and we hope you will find the Cotswold Clay Club and Shooting School one of the friendliest and relaxed clay pigeon shooting venues that you have visited.

* Bookings to be made on the phone or email at lease a day in advance. All bookings require a deposit to secure.

  • My girlfriend booked a shooting experience for us last year, we had so much fun that I then took my two boys (at the time aged 8 & 12) - once again superb. Since then I have been back multiple time with friends and to have lessons. If you are looking for a friendly, unpretentious, safe, welcoming club with fantastic instruction then this is it!

  • Booked in with my lad for his birthday, a clay-shoot experience. We had a great time, my lad enjoyed it. We were made to feel very welcome and had a laugh with one or two of the regulars - a good bunch! Dave, our tutor, was easy to follow with the instructions and very patient, would do it again.

  • Thanks for your hospitality yesterday. My brother and I really enjoyed shooting your ground, the stand lay-outs and target presentations. Very different, much better than we usually shoot and more challenging too! You have a great ground and I really enjoyed how you’d set it, particularly the first 5 stands through the gaps in the hedge row that provided target glimpse. You provided a great range of targets, so thank you.

  • Just wanted to thank you for a warm welcome and a fantastic experience for my Mum. The instructor was brilliant and both Mum and my two sons really enjoyed themselves. I will recommend you to all my family and friends.
