“I derive a great deal of pleasure introducing people to this great sport of ours. From the novice breaking their first targets, through coaching the experienced shot on the more challenging target presentations, to identifying the problems that creep into the game and clay shooters repertoire over the years. I am always striving to improve the shooting experience whether by adding specialist clay traps or the addition of all-weather stands. It is an ongoing commitment.”

 In addition a mobile service is available. For details of this and all our activities please visit our website http://www.dbcleisure.co.uk or contact me direct by email or telephone.
