Doveridge Clay Sports will be open by appointment on Wednesdays, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays.

Under Government Guidance issued we can confirm Shooting Grounds in Tier 4 areas can remain open for practice, pay & play in the following formats:

  • Individual practice
  • Practice with people within your household (people you live with)
  • Practice with one other person from another household (2m Apart)

If you live in a Tier 4 area you must follow specific travel guidance including not leaving Tier 4 areas except where permitted under the guidance. Tier 4 areas should not be entered by anybody from a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area. Full details of Tier 4 guidance can be found on the government’s website (

Due to the guidance from Government and the CPSA we will be operating a booking in system. You will not be allowed to just turn up at the ground without a booking.

To help reduce the risk to our customers and staff we need to do the following:-

  • Receive payment by Card / Payments online / Exact Cash
  • Restrict the numbers of people on the ground to ensure social distancing
  • Manage staggered entry times
  • Shooters should wear normal PPE for shooting, but we would highly recommend people wear gloves and masks which is at the shooter’s discretion.
  • All Sporting Stands will have a new foot switch installed. This will stop shooters having to touch the buttons to release the traps.  It will also enable individual shooters to easily release the traps alone.
  • Sporting will be running on a one-way system. All shooters at their allocated time will start at Stand 1 and follow on to Stand 2 and so on.  All Layouts and Stands will have clear waiting points.

New Booking System

This booking system will be in place until the guidelines change from the Government and CPSA. This will be the new normal for now.

If you come to the ground and have not got a booking, please remain in your car and call us to check if a time is available on this day.


  • The new rules for squads is as follows :-
    • Individual practice
    • Practice with people within your household (people you live with)
    • Practice with one other person from another household (2m Apart)


We will be operating a one person in and one person out system in the clubhouse.  You will be permitted to come into the reception to pay for clay credit and purchase cartridges.  The only other time you may come into the clubhouse is to use the toilets.



Arrival / Departure

Please only arrive 15 Minutes before your allocated time, which will give you time to purchase clay credit or cartridges.  Once you have completed your shooting please go directly to your car and leave the ground. We appreciate that shooting has always been a social activity and a way to meet friends. Unfortunately, due to the virus we have no choice but to ask people to leave as soon as they have completed their rounds to comply with the guidelines we have been set
