The inaugural Holland & Holland School Notices Independent Schools Clay Pigeon Championships 2019 certainly went off with a bang!
Held on Thursday 21st March at Holland & Holland’s prestigious Shooting Grounds in Northwood, Middlesex, schools were represented from across the breadth of the UK, from Hampshire to London to Scotland. The rain stayed away, the food flowed and a fantastic day was had by all on this incredible shooting course.
The Championships allow children and parents/alumni the chance to meet other keen shots and take part in some healthy competition! Along with Holland & Holland we were delighted to offer this wonderful opportunity to introduce children to a life-long skill improving hand-eye coordination, accuracy, and determination.
‘Children love the excitement of clay-shooting and take real satisfaction from engaging in an activity that gets them outdoors.’ – Daryl Greatrex, MD of Holland & Holland
“We were thrilled to be bringing together so many top schools and the event is sure to become a firm fixture in schools’ sporting calendars.” – Gordon Dawson, Co-Founder of School Notices
The winner from each of the Junior, Senior and Parents & Aiumni team categories were presented with their trophy by legendary Olympic Shooting Gold Medallist, Richard Faulds MBE, with the trophy to be displayed in their school until next year’s competition.
And the winners are…
Junior Team Cup
