Shooting is a highly technical sport that requires an ice cool temperament, incredible concentration and remarkable precision.
As a sport, target shooting is incredibly accessible and requires minimal modification, making it easy for pretty much everyone to have a go regardless of age or ability.
British Shooting is working hard with clubs and other partners to provide inclusive opportunities for people to come and try target shooting and is developing the already established Disability Hub Club scheme. The aim of the of the scheme is to develop a network of clubs with the two-fold ambition of growing the numbers of disabled people enjoying the sport and creating better linkage between the clubs themselves and the World Class Performance Programme.
