The UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), has signed a three year sponsorship deal with Eley Hawk, the UK’s leading cartridge manufacturer.
Eley Hawk will be an official partner of the BASC shotgun coaching programme at UK game fairs and shooting events.
BASC has signed an exclusive deal to use Eley Hawk shotgun cartridges on its coaching lines and at regional coaching events across the UK.
In addition, BASC-accredited coaches will wear clothing featuring a specially designed Eley Hawk and BASC shotgun coaching logo.
Novices shooting for the first time at the events will be presented with a commemorative BASC Eley Hawk First Shot badge as a memento of the event.
Dr Peter Marshall, BASC’s director of shooting standards, said: “Teaming up with Eley Hawk is a marvellous opportunity. The future of our sport depends on bringing people into shooting and through our partnership with Eley Hawk we will help to ensure that its future is protected for years to come.”
David Scott, UK commercial manager for Eley Hawk, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with BASC and helping encourage people to try shooting and join our sport. We are looking forward to working closely with BASC wherever we can to help promote shooting."
