Welcome to the new home of English Sporting Clay shooting in the lower North. Beginning in January 2024 Wairarapa Clay Target Club will be applying the Series Championship model, made famous in NZ by UTNZ Inc., to English Sporting clays! The proof of success is recorded in our Compak Series from 2022, and the FITASC Series from 2023. For 2024 we've got a lot more planned, and it starts with The English Game in the first half of the year
