Also due to host the Beretta World Sporting Championship next year, West Midlands Shooting Ground, owned and run by Tom and Debra Jones, is perfect for an occasion like this. The team is experienced in providing targets for youngsters as it plays host to the British Universities and Colleges Sports Clay Pigeon Shooting Championship each year, so it will be a great situation to test your mettle against people of a similar age on one of the competition’s three Sporting layouts.
