Shooting stars! The sun

Shooting stars! The sun shone, hundreds of clays soared and cartridges flew at the inaugural Holland & Holland School Notices Independent Schools Clay Pigeon Championships on 21st March 2019 Parent and Alumni teams set forth in the morning competitively vying for the beautiful Holland & Holland trophy. Then an afternoon of school Junior and Senior teams battled it out for glory. The atmosphere was electric with all eyes on the prize. This was no walk in the park, with a myriad of testing stands and a hotly contested royal flush for the Seniors. With Bloxham scoring 79 out of 80 (flush) and Eton a very close second, the Alumni were shamed into booking shooting lessons in time for next year! The Holland & Holland School Notices Independent Schools Clay Pigeon Championships is now firmly part of the school curriculum with 2020 places already being rebooked and new schools queueing to take part. A March 2020 date will be announced shortly. Book early to avoid disappointment! “We were incredibly impressed with the level of the schools that competed and to see so many involved in the rst championships is greatly encouraging. Many congratulations to all who took part.” Nicolas Ollivier, Holland & Holland
