Hi Tess,

Very many thanks for a brilliant day – I think it probably ranks as one of the best we have had, so thanks again to you, Andy and the team.

Many thanks



Hi, I would just like to drop you a short note to say how impressed I am with your shooting ground, I and my son Charlie shot at the “Jack Pyke” on Sunday and this was our 1st time at Sporting/Ts Very impressed with everything, and this does include your staff, we both cant wait to return, will also add Charlie done a PB as well there


Excellent shoot at the Jack Pyke Pro Sport English Open 2015 Thanks for a great layout, and flawless organisation – just a bit more work on getting the weather perfect for every day. All the best Henry and Jerry This e-mail was sent from a contact form on Sporting Targets


I would like to thank you for organising the Office Space in Town Annual Company Weekend Away 2015. I know this was one of your busiest weekends with the Tournament etc. too, so we already felt special.

Each and every one of us had a fabulous time and this was in despite of the awful weather! We had an instructor for each of our four groups and every group reported back on what a fabulous and day, entertaining, time they had with these super nice guys. They were gentlemen, knowledgeable, fantastic personalities and unbelievably got us all to shoot and hit the targets!

The set up was professionally organised and there were even remarks on great sandwiches!

We are each treasuring our hats and would like to yet again send a massive THANK YOU to all involved!

Hi Tess – Just a note to ask you to pass on my big thanks to John for looking after us during our event on Saturday, we all had a great time and memorable afternoon. The quads were great fun and no broken bones!

I’ll also be looking for some lessons with clay pigeon shooting as I was rubbish so can you let me know the cost for 6 lessons (I’ll bring my own gun and cartridges). Wednesday evenings, Saturday or Sunday’s are best.

Thanks once again.

Best regards

Dear Sir/Madam

RE: KRB Electrics – Shooting Day Thursday 23 April

Further to the above I wanted to just drop a quick note to thank everybody at Sporting Targets for a fabulous day, I have attended a number of events like this over the years and have to say that I have never received the level of professional and patient tuition which my group enjoyed from JB during our visit on Thursday.

Everyone had a fantastic time, I though the facilities were excellent and special thanks to JB for his patience and expertise with the group (and especially me!)

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other people, I wish you continued success, thanks again.

Kind regards.

Everyone enjoyed it in our group, and said they would love to do it again.

Thanks again

……… and also thank you to all at Sporting Targets for a very enjoyable day yesterday.  All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it.

Kind regards

A short note to Steve and John to say how much I appreciated their help and advice today. I learnt more in 15 minutes about eye-dominance and mounting the gun than ever before – I have received a lot of advice in the past but never in such a coherent way. I consistently hit more targets today than I have for some time – including more than a few off the high towers; targets which I have avoided for a while!

Riseley is also the biggest and best club I have ever visited and I joined today (as a Soap!) and will certainly be back . It is quite a distance but it is hard to avoid shooting nirvana, in addition to the knowledge of you all.

Again, thank you both or your time – it was very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

“2014 was the first year for a new annual charity clay shoot organised by Anglian Water in support of WaterAid.”

“Working with Andrew and his team at Sporting Targets made the event go off better than we could have hoped, from the early meetings to the faultless running of the event on the day. The team at sporting targets understood exactly what we wanted to get out of the day, and helped us pull together an event that catered for over a hundred shooters, mostly novices, including a sporting and flush layout.”

“No detail was ignored, and we were delighted with the outcome. Everything from catering, to marquee hire – even posh loos! – was thought of. Over 15 instructors supported us on the day, and without their help the event simply wouldn’t have happened.”

“With Sporting Target’s  support, a fantastic day was had by all.  It provided a great introduction to shooting for a lot of people, but more importantly it helped raise £9,000 for WaterAid in the process. We will definitely be back again next year, and we hope we can take the event from strength to strength.”

“The John Lewis Clay Pigeon Shooting club has had a long relationship with Sporting Targets. We find the excellent customer service, quality targets make this a regular fixture in our club activities.

I would whole heartedly recommend Sporting Targets to any prospective Shooter looking for a warm welcome and great targets.”

My best man and I spent the morning of my wedding day (13/10/14) at Sporting Targets and we had a fantastic time (and it was great to deal with any pre wedding jitters this way!).

We did Clay Pigeon shooting, archery, and cross bows and our instructor was David Turner. All the team at Sporting Targets were excellent.
