More and more women and girls are getting involved in our sport thanks to the likes of the Femmes Fatales and Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club; female focused shooting clubs that host events across the country, catering for beginners and experienced shots alike.
There are also plenty of women and girls participating in rifle and pistol shooting and our Target Sprint series has a really good gender split.
No matter what level you're at, there is somewhere for you to participate. We have decided to detail just a few possible routes you can take to start your target shooting journey.
Information on the clubs mentioned above and others is provided below.
