In July 2015 we will be holding The Beretta World Sporting Championships at The West Midlands Shooting Ground, near Telford in Shropshire. Considered by many to be the most scenic in the UK, this famous shooting ground, has hosted many top events including the British Open, Benelli SP'AUTO and various international shooting competitions.
Sometimes referred to as Hodnet, the ground was established in 1934 and has been lovingly developed over the years. A maze of beautifully maintained paths lead you through this picturesque setting, to the 80 plus stands, boasting over 200 clay pigeon traps, comprising some of the finest sporting targets in the UK today.
With a spacious Scandinavian style log cabin, competitors can relax, whatever the weather and browse in the Beretta 'shop in shop'. This was the first shop in shop in the country and after recent renovations is currently the largest in the UK, also boasting premium dealership status. Next year the event will be held on Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th July 2015. This highly acclaimed event has been running for almost 30 years now and regularly attracts over 1,000 entries.
The format of the Beretta World will remain the same; 120 targets will be shot over 15 stands, positioned in a variety of situations, in this beautiful setting. The Beretta World has become renowned for creating challenging and original courses that can test the more able shooter without excluding the less experienced shot.
Karl Waktare, Managing Director of GMK Ltd, commented; "Every year we look forward to the Beretta World. It's always such a great weekend; a great course, familiar faces and with the new venue of West Midlands Shooting Ground, one of the best venues in the country, it'll be a fantastic weekend for sure!"
So put the dates in your diary as this promises to be a weekend not to be missed!
