The Activity People's Eccles site is one of the finest shooting challenges you'll find anywhere in the North West. We are surrounded by 400 acres of picture perfect woodland, but those views just don't compare to the challenging thrill of taking down the targets. With clays flying from all angles, from high towers to charging simulated game, this is the perfect way to put your accuracy and marksmanship to the test.

Facilities on offer include parking, brand new clubhouse, changing rooms, cafe bar with full catering, outdoor patio for BBQs, toilets and much more besides.

The Shoot

Clocking in at a whopping 400 acres, our Eccles site isn't just the largest clay shooting site serving the Manchester area- it is one of the largest you'll find anywhere in the UK as a whole! We have everything a clay shooter needs; we have dedicated skeet and UT ranges, jaw dropping high towers and a wide variety of simulated game targets that will put your shooting skills to the ultimate test. For beginners, you will also be hitting the targets in no time thanks to our expert tuition.

Our site has toilets, changing rooms, spectator areas and car parking facilities. Light refreshments are available on the day.

The booking process was simple and straightforward, the staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful and our tutor (Huey?) was an absolute star. A great tutor, very patient and gave us lots of encouragement. The set up at at Eccles was excellent and we all had a really fabulous time. We would highly recommend a visit. Thank you!"
