Nuthampstead Shooting Ground is re-opening on the 17th of June.

This will be great news to all of our customers however it will come as no surprise as there will be new measures in place around the Ground. We hope that all customers can come and enjoy their visit but at the same time feel it is a safe place to be.

Social distancing measures must be adhered to and hand sanitising stations must be used regularly especially when entering the toilets. Further guidance will be offered on arrival to Nuthampstead Shooting Ground. Please make yourself aware of government guidelines before leving home.

Opening hours.

Our new summer opening hours are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturdays 10am – 4pm and Sundays 10am-1pm. Olympic Trap, Universal Trench and Olympic Skeet will be available. All you have to do is send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or a Facebook message to let us know you are coming so we can monitor how busy each day will be and facilitate any extra precautions.

We will be monitoring this system and make sure that customers are safe throughout the day without booking hour slots. We will be asking customers to leave once they have finished their shooting activities especially if we feel there are too many people on site. We kindly ask that anyone that feels unwell, has felt unwell or has been around anyone who suspects they have contracted Covid-19 stays away from the shooting ground. You will be asked to leave the site immediately if anyone suspects or is uncomfortable with you showing symptoms of Covid-19.

Whilst we feel we have put in place, as best to our ability preventative measures to make staff and customers safe, it is up to each visitor to be responsible for their own safety and to respect everyone-else attending Nuthampstead Shooting Ground.
