The Royal Berkshire Ladies Cup 2020

Join us on Saturday 25th April for the all new Royal Berkshire Ladies Cup 2020.

Whether you are an experienced shot or completely new to the sport, join us for an exhilarating morning of shooting with the chance to win some fabulous prizes and indulge in a glass of bubbles and some retail therapy!

The Shooting

We are offering three categories of shooting to suit all levels of experience.  Every category has some amazing prizes up for grabs.

Novice Ladies £110.00

Novices are ladies that 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 the professional instructors at RBSS and all equipment will be provided including shotgun, ammunition, clays and all necessary safety wear.

Intermediate Ladies £55.00

Intermediate Shots are those that can shoot competently and safely and do not need to be accompanied by an instructor. You’ll shoot an 80 ‘Bird’ Sporting Competition. The course will be designed to be fun, but challenging too.

You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from us on the day (please note we are a fibre wad only ground).

The Serious Shots £55.00

This one is for ladies with a CPSA Classification of C or above. You’ll shoot an 80 ‘Bird’ Sporting Competition. The course will be designed to be fun, but challenging too.

You will need to provide your own cartridges and you are welcome to purchase them from us on the day (please note we are a fibre wad only ground).

The Prizes! 

We cannot thank our incredibly generous sponsors enough for supporting this inspirational event by providing such wonderful prizes! We wouldn’t be able to host this event without them! Thankyou!

Some of the prizes to be won are Schoffel clothing, Le Chameau wellies, a special signed copy of Rachel Carrie’s cook book ‘Game and Gatherings’, Taittinger champagne, Browning kit galore, a Croots personalised gun slip and cartridge bag , £200.00 of Purdey clothing vouchers, Gamebore cartridges, beautiful gifts from the incredibly talented Clare Haggas, subscriptions to Fieldsports Journal and much more.

Many of you whom have attended the Femmes Fatales Cup in past years will have enjoyed shooting the one of a kind grouse sequence here at the Royal Berkshire.

We are delighted to announce that this will, once again, be included within the ‘Intermediate’ and ‘Serious Shot’ 80 bird sporting competition. And what is more, the Royal Berkshire are donating a place on a Really Wild simulated day worth £250 to the top scoring lady on this layout!

Double your score with Browning!

Browning have very kindly provided us with some beautiful guns for our ladies to try on the day. These guns will be based on one of the stands within the layout and ladies will have the chance to shoot with a gun of their choosing and therefore double their score on that stand!
