Shoot with Sarah Daly

If you have not been successful in other sports then try shooting – you may surprise yourself!

With my colleagues we visited the shooting range next to Basingstoke on A339, was easy to find the place. None of us did it before so the new experience made our team building fantastic. The following day everyone was talking about it which confirmed me they really enjoyed it. They were not just talking about the shooting but Sarah, our instructor. She was absolutely amazing!!! Beside her professionalism she is just a natural talent in engaging people and keeping them involved. She was serious and funny and interesting and ... you have to go and experience it. 🙂 She was the key ingredient of our remarkable memory. Thank you Sarah!
I started shooting after a corporate event having Sarah Daly as my groups' Instructor. I was tempted to take up shooting from that day on after asking Sarah if she would take me on as my coach as I wanted to start as I meant to go on - properly, with the right technique to build on as I had not even handled a shotgun before then. That was just 2 years ago and having started on both Sporting and English Skeet, both of which Sarah coaches me, I suspect Sarah saw a potential for me to take on Olympic Skeet early in my shooting career. With Sarah's expert guidance ( and patience I might add ), dealing with the various mood swings that hits you with trying to succeed, being good one day, seemingly hopeless another, I feel that I am doing reasonably well - always want to be better - but progressing stage by stage refining techniques.
Sarah has been coaching my two daughters for just a couple of months, taking them from scratch to becoming confident with taking clays. She has a natural way with kids and quickly inspires their confidence, at the same time as instilling the essential respect for the gun that is required for safe shooting. I decided to take my first lesson ever (despite having shot for many years) and already am finding my results improving. I would recommend Sarah Daly to everyone”
Sarah has been teaching clay pigeon shooting to my Son Tom (15 years) and my daughter Lorrayne (13 years) for the last 12 months. She has taught them regularly and at various locations in the South of England. I have found her to be a very patient and knowledgeable person. I believe that she has taught my children in a safe and professional manner. The children have not only learnt how to shoot but also how to be safe when shooting either in the field or on a range. We shall continue to use Sarah’s services and hope that one day champion may be found in Tom and/or Lorrayne.
Just wanted to say thank you for my lesson this morning, enjoyed it and very educational!!!
All in all the shooting lesson paid off brilliantly. So thank you lots. See you in a few weeks.

All thanks to you first drive 4 with 5 shots, not much more shooting for rest of day till last drive, had three right and lefts and would think about another 5 birds AND that was with keeper’s wife and son stood right behind me after asking if they could watch ....... !!! All thanks to you
Attended as part of a Corporate event and had such an amazing experience with the team! The great coaching from Sarah made the day even better, and even resulted in us hitting more clays than we had expected! Recommend for any type of event and I will definitely be going back for more! Thank you for a great day out and a brilliant introduction to Clay Pigeon Shooting. Warmest regards!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a massive thank you for hosting the event on Tuesday. I have had some brilliant feedback from guests who thoroughly enjoyed the day. Word even got back to one of the company’s head office and got back to Barbara (BOA) DURING the event! That must be a record.
Brilliant afternoon, I booked this as a birthday gift and all enjoyed it, Sarah was brilliant funny and very informative, definitely going again.
It was more fun and easier than I thought!!
