CURRENT OPENING TIMES
Monday to Friday
10am – 3.30pm
Set in 20 acres of partially wooded and landscaped grounds, West Kent Shooting School offers a comprehensive English Sporting layout with over 100 different combination of targets, including a 100ft Raywing High Tower.
The range is carefully laid out to provide a totally natural setting for extensive shooting for both novices and experts, all within the beautiful tranquility of rural Kent, close to Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Our continued success owes much to our policy of constantly re-investing in our core activity as a Shooting School.
By always upgrading our facilities to be the best, we can offer the most comprehensive range of clay pigeon shooting sporting facilities in the South East of England, and since 2006 making us one of the smallest, but proudest CPSA Premier Plus Ground.
In 2013 our success continued by being voted “The Shooting Ground of the Year”.
Our Corporate and Conference facilities blend the highest standard of professionalism with an informal touch that makes each corporate guest feel like a favoured friend, which has cemented our reputation as one of the top venues in the South East for corporate shooting parties.
WE ARE OPEN MONDAY TO FRIDAY 10am to 5pm (winter 3-4pm)
(excluding Bank Holidays)
I arrived today for my first ever lesson, first time handling a gun, and I can’t thank Trevor enough for making me feel comfortable and relaxed. Trevor ran through essential gun safety and we quickly got shooting. Once he showed me the method - I was knocking clays out the sky like no body’s business! The staff were great - and most importantly They DO NOT make beginners like me feel out of place amongst seasoned shooters! I really feel that’s why the place is so busy - everyone has to start somewhere!! If you interested in learning - with out fail make WKS your No1 place to learn and progress! I can’t wait to get back out there! Thanks again Trevor - absolute diamond bloke!
We had been recommended this place by some friends and thought it was a long way to drive, but boy was it worth it! each stand is really well set up and you can shoot most stand from different positions, as long as the cable reaches to a safe place then you can shoot it there, creating so many possibilities, so no chance of shooting the same birds time after time! they also have an enormous tower with traps on all side, very challenging! Staff were great, really helpful and friendly, there is a club house where food and drink is served, very clean toilets, all in all, a great day out, Thank you.
Dear West Kent, Yesterday was my first visit to your ground and I have to say what a pleasure it was. Excellent facilities, friendly and helpful staff in the club house, interesting and some challenging targets on a very well kept and presented clay ground. All in all a first class facility - well done. It's a bit of a run from Guildford to make it a regular location for me but I will be back and will certainly sing your praises to others. Thanks for a good day,
Our 10 year old grandson Archie says he had the best lesson and shoot ever today with Colin Gardner. Thanks Colin for making his birthday.
One of my fav grounds! Excellent layouts, love the high tower and driven targets! Rabbits were my fav, although could add some variations. All in all, Well kept grounds, Very welcoming and helpful staff
If carlsberg did shooting grounds!!! Very well laid out ground with multiple traps, some having up to 5 bird options. The high tower pings out clays for several traps, so there's options for easy through to almost impossible to hit! Not a single no bird in 100 clays shot this morning. Clubhouse is very up market, good snacks and coffee. Slightly more expensive than other grounds but I can understand why...love this ground.
just a short note to thank you for looking after us on Friday. Everybody had a really good time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Those who had only shot on corporate days (or not at all) could not believe the standard and quality of the ground and clubhouse. Both are a credit to you. My thanks as well to the two instructors who were professional and patient and of course to all you 'ladies' who looked after us gents so admirably. I had a great birthday 'bash' of which I would like to say a big thank you - to you and all the staff.
We all had a super event. Thank you for a very well organised day and for giving it so much attention to detail.
Another lovely day at West Kent SS. Pete was given the perfect gift of vouchers! Couldn't have asked for better day. Lovely surroundings and friendly staff always. The set up is first class.
Great place , great staff and great prices always have a great time when visiting !
My daughter and I love this place the staff are always so friendly & always there to help
Recently has a series of lessons. The staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. The instructors were very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. I would highly recommend West Kent you will not be disappointed.
Our company have entertained hundreds' of our clients at Michael and Gillian's establishment over the last 10 years and we get clients who we no longer do business with asking for an invite each year. If you ever wanted to see how a good business model works delivering a faultless service to Kids and Corporate customers alike, Michael and Gillian and their excellent staff and shooters are one of the best examples I know.
We would like to send our personal thanks to West Kent Shooting School, for their incredibly friendly and helpful staff. It was an amazing first experience for myself as I'd never even held a gun. We'd like to send a big thank you to all the staff and say what beautifully well maintained grounds too.
I just want to say a very big thank you to Cliff. I took up shooting last year at 70 years of age and not only was he exceptionally patient, he was so professional and explained everything very clearly. I am now giving things a go on my own but will soon be booking another lesson with him for ‘corrective treatment’. Thanks again.
A quickie to say how much we all enjoyed our day with you on Friday. It was well organised, and well run. We thought that the West Kent Shooting School was well turned out, well ordered and put on the most lovely lunch. The whole thing was an exemplar of what a well run fun charity day should be.
Went here with my dad for the first time and I'm so glad we did. Definitely going to go back again and again. A fun packed day.
