Located in 35 acres of Hampshire countryside between Southampton and Portsmouth with convenient access from Junction 9 of the M27, Fareham Clay Target Club is one of Southern England's leading shooting grounds. It is also one of the U.K.'s largest members owned clubs, as the ground and the assets of the club are owned by the members, all the profits from shoots are reinvested back into the club. The club is run by a management team elected by the membership each year at the annual AGM. The clubs facilities include a huge area for parking, a large heated club house with a traditional brick fireplace complete with log burning fire, an entrance ramp for disabled access, seating area for 40 members and visitors, hot/cold meals and beverages from a large commercial style kitchen, permanent fully equipped modern male and female toilets (complete with baby changing area), colour TV, a small shop selling cartridges, hearing protection and other accessories.

All the traps are large automatic static and mobile units. The ABT and DTL layouts are operated on the 'Canterbury' acoustic release system and are under cover.
The English Sporting is set in a large area of woods shooting over two valleys, complete with two high towers, making this a testing layout for the experienced shooter, but still kind to the beginner. The layouts are changed for each sporting fixture. All the traps are magazine fed units on button release.
A five stand pool shoot also operates on all shoot days, so that you can keep your eye in during the breaks of shooting rounds of your favorite discipline . At two pounds per ten (5 x pairs) its great fun even if its raining as the stands are all under cover.
