Reading University students receive expert coaching

Reading University students receive coaching

BASC, the UK’s largest shooting organisation, has helped Reading University students prepare for their first shooting competition.

Students from the university’s clay pigeon shooting club, including complete novices, enjoyed a morning of shooting at Happy Valley Clays under the guidance of qualified BASC shotgun coaches.

Michelle Nudds, BASC South East regional officer, said: “I am delighted we were able to bring together Reading University with Happy Valley Clays to help them practice for their forthcoming competitions and introduce a number of their new members to shooting via our BASC instructors.”

The experienced shooters joined a member of the Happy Valley Clays for a 50-bird practice round while those shooting for the first time enjoyed a full introductory lesson.

Mike Bumford, president of the university’s clay pigeon club, said: “We were pleased to be working with the expert guidance of BASC’s shooting instructors to introduce some of our new members to shooting plus give a further opportunity for the more experienced guns to practice ahead of our first competition at St Andrews in November.”
