The Shotgun & Chelsea Bun Club is an award winning, Ladies only Shooting and Cake Club. It was formed in September 2011 and has grown phenomenally since then in to the UK’s largest ladies only shooting organisation.
The key objective of the S&CBC is to encourage more women into what is traditionally a male dominated sport, make it accessible and affordable. We take away any pressure, preconceptions and make it jolly good fun! The club is very well attended by more experienced Lady Guns too, including a good proportion of game shots. We do cater for everyone and always have a nice mix of abilities. Girls are matched with others of similar experience and given an Instructor and targets to suit them. We shoot, then reconvene as a group and enjoy a variety of homemade cakes and tea served in vintage china and a jolly good chat! It's a great opportunity to make new friends, network and shoot with really nice ladies.
Our days generally start at 10am, the ladies are introduced and acquainted before being split into smaller teams and assigned an Instructor for the day.
The teams go their separate ways around the shooting ground, shooting a number of stands, under the qualified instruction of their Coach.
If you have never shot before, don’t worry – you will be taught the basics and will be hitting simple targets in no time. The guns and cartridges we shoot have very low recoil, so there is no need to worry about ‘kick’. Our Instructors are friendly, patient and have a great sense of humour.
A team member will keep score on one of our little S&CBC score cards for you.
Once everyone has taken all of their shots, you will make your way back to the Club House for tea and cake. We will count up the scorecards and the highest scoring ladies – one from the beginners and one from the more experienced will win a S&CBC rosette and a prize! There is also a rosette for the best cake – should you like to bring one along.
We now have an ever growing list of dates, which includes a shoot in every County in England, with more to come!
