F.I.T.A.S.C Sporting

Federation Internationale de Tir Aux Sportives de Chasse, or F.I.T.A.S.C as it’s more commonly known as is a form of competitive clay shooting. Considered to be the ultimate challenge in clay shooting, it is a sport that takes years to master. Here at Purbeck Shooting School, our facilities for clay shooting in Bournemouth are perfect for anyone looking to hone their skills.

Graham Browns of Purbeck Shooting School is committed to helping shooters develop their skills including:

  • Attention to Target Setting
  • Understanding the Importance of Gun Maintenance
  • Muzzle Positioning
  • Footwork
  • And More!

His passion and enthusiasm make us the go-to choice for those looking to do F.I.T.A.S.C clay shooting Bournemouth. In fact, 1999 F.I.T.A.S.C World Champion Ben Brunton had this to say about Graham:

“Graham and his team have developed one of the finest F.I.T.A.S.C layouts in the UK without a doubt. His friendly approach to the sport and the relaxed atmosphere at the ground makes shooting there a real pleasure!”

Compact Shooting

Bournemouth, clay shooting covers many different aspects, and one of these is compact sporting. This is a multi-trap discipline with a typical layout consisting of 25 targets which are shot at from five different shooting positions. The shooter will follow a standard menu of five targets per stand, each one featuring a single and two doubles.

The process involves firing the first double shot on report and the second simultaneously. All shooters will rotate positions ensuring that all five targets are shot by all shooters. The scores are then tallied up.


For those who have never been clay shooting before, skeet is the perfect entry-level option. You’ll develop your skills while enjoying a fun day out with a few friends. For those really looking to test their skills, we also have an Olympic skeet option. As you can imagine, this is not for the faint of heart and is the ultimate clay shooting Bournemouth test of skill.

Simulated Game

If you wish to get in a little pre-game practice or simply to blow off a little steam with some friendly competition, our simulated games are for you. This takes place away from the school over five drives and include refreshments in between and a meal at the end of the day. We can even bring all the equipment necessary to a venue of your choice, pending a site survey to assess its suitability.
