Sherwood Shooting Academy, the home of the Disabled Clay Target Shooting GB Club (DCTSGB), opened its doors in October. Owned and run by Mark Lewis and Keith Shields, the shooting ground has been developed to be fully accessible to everyone.
Sherwood is open to disabled and able-bodied people alike, including corporate days. Layouts three and four have new pathways that are wheelchair friendly, while layouts one and two are under development for wheelchair access. Skeet and DTL practice are available on three ranges, and there are big plans for expansion. A paved 50-bird Sporting layout with covered stands and an ABT layout with disabled access are also in the pipeline for the end of 2013.
DCTSGB training days will be held regularly, and it is open to everyone for instruction. As well as being staffed by friendly and approachable people, Sherwood Shooting Academy has its own medical support team. The clubhouse has a ramp to ensure easy access, and work is currently being undertaken to improve its facilities, including installing a new kitchen. There are also toilets onsite with disabled access.
Based near Ollerton in Nottingham in the heart of Sherwood Forest, the shooting ground aims to provide top-class facilities for everyone in a safe environment. Its opening times are Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 10am to dusk, as well as other days by appointment.
