The Phoenix Shooting Club was first established over 30 years ago in 1986. The club was named after The Phoenix Inn near Hartley Wintney where the original six founder members were regular drinkers. Not long afterwards the club became affiliated to the CPSA now making it one of the oldest CPSA affiliated clay shooting clubs. Different shooting grounds have been used over the years but for the last 12 or so we have been using a really nice ground at Long Sutton near Odiham in north Hampshire. The club currently has around 60 members. We shoot sporting clay targets on every second and fourth Sunday of the month with the occasional extra shoot.
Please note it is not a large ground so we do have a limit on guests (experienced shooters) per shoot but if you want to come along please make contact with our club secretary (see contacts) in advance. If you just turn up without prior notice we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to shoot.
Please also note our start time of 10.00 am with no booking in after 9.30 am. If you arrive after 9.30am you may not be able to shoot. We are usually finished shooting at 12 midday.
The club has a police exemption certificate which means non-certificate holders can shoot on our ground. The club has full public liability insurance and currently has four CPSA qualified safety officers. On our usual Sunday morning shoots we shoot 70 clays over 7 or 8 stands. We have a high tower and are also “fully auto” with a wide range of automatic traps. Cartridges are available to purchase at the shoot.
Each year we host a novice shoot which is an opportunity for complete beginners to have a go and potentially go on to take up clay shooting as their hobby. Dates and details of our novice shoots (and other events) are posted the ‘News & Events’ section of the website.
