25 women from across the country hit their targets at the new event designed to attract both beginners and experienced clay pigeon shooters.
Led by the skilled coaching team including Tracy Meston – the UK’s only female CPSA (Clay Pigeon Shooting Association) Level 3 Coach and Tutor– the event began with breakfast at the Roxburghe Hotel Golf Club followed by a day of clay pigeon instruction, competition and a sporting flush finale.
Participants ended the day with a luxury afternoon tea of artisan sandwiches and delicacies at the hotel’s Chez Roux restaurant founded by legendary Chef Albert Roux, OBE, KFO.
Tracy Meston, senior coach, said: “The first event has been a massive success and has been a great opportunity for participants to experience the recent upgrades made to the school.”
“Due to the event’s popularity; we are already working on the preparation for the next one and look forward to welcoming the next group keen to experience our exciting sport in such a stunning location. We hope to make this a regular event.”
