Wilde & Glorious Ladies Cups 2024

'The Ladies Shooting Events Of The Year' as featured in Tatler and Country & Townhouse.


We are excited to be hosting two aspirational ladies shooting events this year;


Saturday 27th April 2024 - Wilde & Glorious Purdey Ladies Cup

Purdey at the Royal Berkshire, Berkshire


Saturday 22nd June 2024 - Wilde & Glorious Grimsthorpe Ladies Cup

Grimsthorpe Estate Shooting Ground, Lincolnshire

 

Whether you are an experienced shot or completely new to the sport, join us for two exhilarating mornings of shooting with the chance to win some fabulous prizes including Purdey tweed, Schoffel clothing, Clare Haggas scarves, bespoke glasses from Edwards Eyewear, Gamebore cartridges, Swatcom ear defenders, driving experiences from Inchcape Jaguar Landrover and much more.

 

Once shooting has concluded, enjoy a glass of fizz and our Wilde & Glorious sweetie buffet whilst indulging in some retail therapy in each of the shooting school's country stores and our shopping village.


Louisa and Leon from Eat Wild will be with us at both events, serving delicious game canapés and chatting all things field to fork.

 

We will be raising money for the incredible breast cancer charity; Coppafeel. £5 from every entry, plus all proceeds raised from the welly wanging competitions go directly to the charity.

The Shooting

 

We are offering three categories of shooting to suit all levels of experience. Every category has some amazing prizes up for grabs for first, second and third place.

 

Novice Ladies £120

 

Novices are ladies who are very new to shooting or have never shot before. You’ll enjoy a fun introduction to the sport of clay shooting. Expert tuition will be given by our professional instructors and all equipment will be provided including a shotgun, ammunition, clays and all necessary safety wear.

 

Intermediate Ladies £70

 

Intermediate shots are those that can shoot competently and safely and do not need to be accompanied by an instructor. You will shoot an 80 ‘bird’ sporting competition over a course that is designed to be fun but challenging too. You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from the shooting school on the day.

 

Serious Shots £70

 

This one is for ladies with a CPSA Classification of C or above. You will shoot an 80 ‘bird’ sporting competition over a course that is designed to be fun but challenging too. You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from the shooting school on the day.

 

You are more than welcome to book with friends (we pop you into squads of 5). Please note novices shoot a separate course but intermediate and serious shots shoot the same course together with different prize categories.
