Building a women’s shooting community – find your tribe

Women’s shooting and gundog clubs are on the rise, with friendly guidance turning into a movement. Spending a day in the field among like-minded companions is a wonderful tonic and a great way to meet and make new friends. 

Being around women with similar interests can provide a very nurturing environment for newcomers and seasoned shooters alike. Don’t be afraid to join a women’s club or attend a women’s shoot day alone—you’ll soon spark up a friendship with someone! 

Our list of women’s shooting clubs and gundog clubs cater for beginners to those who have the sport running through their veins. 

BASC Women in Shooting  

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) is the UK’s largest shooting organisation. In addition to providing specialist advice and political lobbying, they organise shooting and rifle events for members. These events can also be enjoyed by non-members as a taster of what the organisation offers. 

BASC Women in Shooting is a subsection of BASC that encourages more women to join our fieldsports community through support, coaching, training courses, events, insights and much more.
