We have come a long way since The West Australian Field and Game Association Inc. was established in 1969. Duly incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 2015 (WA). After 50 years a name change was decided to reflect what our sport was more about in the modern era. In 2019 the Association became known as Sporting Clays Western Australia Inc (SCWA).
What makes Sporting Clays such an exciting sport?
Sporting Clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting that resembles the unpredictability of real-life hunting situations, with clay targets of various sizes thrown from trap machines at various angles, trajectories, elevations, speeds and distances. A course generally consists of 10 to 15 unique stations laid out over natural terrain, leading to the sport being dubbed as “golf with a shotgun”. The variation of clay target presentation is limited only to the imagination of the target setter: “if we can make a clay target fly, it is considered fair game to be shot”. A variety of configurations should be offered across the stations so shooters continue to be challenged and for the environmental conservation of the course. It is this variation that makes Sporting Clays such an entertaining sport for participants of all ages and skill level.
