Sporting Clays is a clay target discipline using shotguns that simulates the type of shooting one could normally expect in the field while hunting.
The size of the targets, their speed and angles of flight are all variable, making sporting clays the most challenging and enjoyable clay target sport you can participate in. Unlike conventional clay target shooting where targets all follow regular and standard trajectories from course to course, no two sporting clays ground are the same and no two grounds have the same targets.
In Sporting Clays, aspects of the natural terrain at the ground are fully utilised so that competitors are shooting amongst trees, rocks, uphill, downhill and overhead. Many different types of targets are employed in Sporting Clays,
