Robin Hood never had to deal with action as intense as this! The Big Shoot's Haywood Oaks site is located in the heart of Sherwood Forest, the world famous home of Robin Hood.

With the help of our expert tutors, you can do to the clays what Robin Hood did the sheriff of Nottingham!

Our superb shooting centre boasts top class facilities that will ensure an unforgettable experience. We have ample on-site parking, hot or cold food and drinks, an excellent clubhouse with bar and billiards, meeting room and indoor and outdoor spectator areas. We also offer one free group photograph. Buffet Available - Extra £7 per person.
Coffee / Tea and Bacon Roll - extra £3.50 per person.
