Clay Pigeon Shooting Club
Cardiff University Clay Pigeon Shooting Club (CUCPSC) provides Cardiff Students with the opportunity to engage in clay pigeon shooting under a supervised yet fun environment. At CUCPSC we cater for all levels, from complete beginner to national and international level shooters.
You do not need to possess a shotgun certificate or own your own shotgun to come clay shooting, as CUCPSC provides all the equipment: shotguns, ear defenders, eye protection and cartridges and offers coaching and advice to all levels!!
Shooting takes place every Wednesday with the ocassional Saturday shoot at Treetops Sporting Shots. We meet at the back of the Student's Union at 1.30pm which is followed by our memorable socials every Wednesday evening. We host a variety of themed and casual events where we usually end up in YOLO or Live Lounge. We also hold non-drinking events such as surfing, paintballing and club roast dinners.
CUCPSC offers the opportunity for all members to compete in the annual BUCS tournament and at other University competitions throughout the year, traveling to Nottingham, St Andrew's, Edinburgh, Oxford, Durham, Bristol, Bath and much much more.
