Normanton Park Estate | Leicestershire | Established 1968

Normanton Shooting Ground is a premier clay shooting ground located in Leicestershire between Thurlaston and Earl Shilton. Established in 1968, the shooting ground has a long-running history of success and extensive development. Based on the beautiful Normanton Park Estate, the shooting experience is one not be missed.

Along with catering for the established shot, Normanton also caters for the complete beginner. We have a highly experienced coaching team who have shot nationally and internationally at the highest levels.

We also run various competitions within disciplines such as our monthly 70 target CPSA registered on the last Wednesday of every month.

Our ground rules permit plastic and fibre wad, maximum load is 28g and maximum shot is number 6.

We’re open Tuesday to Friday every week and alternate Saturdays. Our Saturday opening dates can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Normanton Shooting Ground | Pool Shoot

Pool Shoot

25 targets all shot from 5 different stands and we capture all the scores. At the end of each month we award a cash prize to the shooter with the highest score. Great fun to shoot and also excellent practice for all disciplines.


Whether you or someone you know is just keen to have a go or have had a few lessons already and want to take up the sport, speak to our friendly team and they will guide you every step of the way. We are qualified to teach juniors of 12 years upwards too and we regularly do.


Our sporting and pool shoot layouts change roughly every two weeks so once you master one layout, you’ll be challenged with the next. There will never be identical layout, we like to keep you on your toes! There are always targets for everyone.


Our team set the courses to challenge all levels, including the top A classes. Our layouts are all overseen by our own top-shot Jason Marlow who has taken on some of the most challenging grounds and competitions in the UK.
