Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting
Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting is an electronic way of enjoying traditional clay pigeon shooting. Real shotguns have been adapted to fire harmless infrared beams at targets which fly through the air in the traditional way, launched from an electronic launcher. The guns are converted shotguns so they look and feel real. The result is a highly competitive and enjoyable game. Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting is safe, mobile and environment friendly. But more than anything it’s great fun! For more information visit www.phoenixleisure.co.uk.
Archery is now a much more civilised past-time compared to its olden day use of attacking enemy soldiers. Now a recognised Olympic sport enjoyed by millions across the globe, archery is a growing, fun pastime, where individuals aim at the bullseye rather than each other. Challenge your mates to see who’s got the deadliest aim or simply embrace the thrill of propelling a sharpened arrow at incredible speeds with pinpoint accuracy. From kids to pensioners it’s a great way to improve hand-eye coordination and try a different experience at the same time.
