With 34 acres of shooting layouts, clay traps and exhilarating action to explore, you'd be foolish not to visit The Activity People's Rufforth site. After all, it is one of the most thrilling clay shooting adventures you'll find anywhere in North Yorkshire- and it is just moments away from the centre of York. Why travel anywhere else to get your gun slinging fix, when you have thrills like this lying on your doorstep? If you're a complete beginner, there isn't a better venue for you to have your first time- so pick up a shotgun and show those clays who's boss!

Our modern, purpose built clubhouse features panoramic views of our shooting ranges and beyond. The complex is centrally heated and seats up to 50 guests for your brilliant event. You'll enjoy high quality catering with a wide range of menus to choose from and ideal facilities whatever your event entails. The clubhouse is surrounded by large, grassed open spaces and a car park.

There is also a cafe on site.

You will definitely have your abilities pushed beyond your limits- and you'll leave exhilarated and desperate to take on the challenge again. As you make your way across each of our shooting stands, our tricky traps will simulate a wide variety of game. You'll probably forget you aren't on a real hunt as you'll be so engrossed in the action!

They were also great at giving us tips and outlining where we went wrong so we could try and improve our scores. This was the 2nd stag shoot I've been on here, and I would come here again."

        • "Family fun.
          Booked the shoot as a xmas pressy for dad and sons x 3. Time to spend together as they are now all grown up and doing their own stuff. All very excited when they opened their cards to see what special event I had planned for them this year. Even more excited when they found out what it was. Booking was easy, helped along by Alex, finally booked the date and was over the moon that we managed to get Fathers Day. Waited patiently for them returning and they were absolutely over the moon with their time spent together. Started off with bacon butties at the site, followed by lots of leg pulling laughs and as informed a brilliant instructor that made the day perfect. Seems I hit the jackpot with this one. Well done to all that helped give the men in my life a good family memory."
