JA Shooting Club - 1.5 kilometres from the main resort
The impressive fortress style architecture as you first enter makes the JA Shooting Club an imposing sight from the very start. This indoor and outdoor shooting academy, built to exacting international safety standards, makes the exciting sport of recreational and competitive shooting easily accessible for beginners, corporate groups and experienced shooters.
The five floodlit clay shooting ranges are equipped to cater to the following disciplines:
Olympic trap (OT):
This is one of the disciplines which form part of the shooting programme at the Olympic Games. There are five shooting stations with a set of three trap machines throwing targets at 70 - 75 metres for each station. Six shooters can start as a squad and keep on taking their turns clockwise on each station.
Automatic ball trap (ABT):
A simpler version of Olympic trap, where only one trap machine is used. Target variation for vertical and horizontal movement is obtained by continuous oscillation of the machine. Six shooters can start at one time.
Down the line (DTL):
An entry level discipline to get progression to Olympic trap. A single trap is used to throw target to distance of 45-50 metres at a fixed height of approximately 2.75 metres and horizontal spread of 22 degrees from the centre of the throwing machine.
It is a smaller version of international and English sporting, where some extra trap machines are installed out of skeet layout and then variation in target angles are done thus creating simulation of field hunting shots on all five shooting stations.
This discipline is shot at eight shooting stations on a semi circle and one in the middle with two houses (high and low) at both ends of the semi circle. There is a sequence of fire with 0-3 seconds delay in release after calling. It is mandatory to keep low gun position before the release of clay targets, whereas in American and English skeet it is optional.
12 and 20 gauge Beretta Shot Guns suitable for all shooting disciplines.
13 years and above for the clay pigeon shooting.
