With a surge in the number of women taking up the sport of shooting, Holland & Holland is proud to offer a range of courses and tuition aimed specifically for women.
Whether you are an experienced shot or a beginner, our team of professional, qualified and experienced instructors can help you reach your full potential, meet and make new friends and get the most out of shooting.
Your First Lesson
If you are completely new to the sport we strongly advise getting professional tuition right from the outset. Good initial instruction will pay dividends in the long run as it takes a lot of time and effort to undo bad habits which have become ingrained. Tuition with our specialised instructors is available throughout the year.
In your first lesson, you should expect to fire well under fifty cartridges, it is not about quantity but doing it right that matters. You will learn how to stand properly, so that you are well balanced yet able to move freely, how to hold and mount the gun and how to shoot a couple of basic gentle targets. If you and your instructor get this right together, you should not have any bruising or discomfort.
The Feathers Courses
Our Green and Silver Feathers courses, designed exclusively for women, have been extremely popular over the years. Since the idea was born in 1995, Holland & Holland has introduced over one thousand women to the pleasure of shotgun shooting. For more information visit the Green and Silver Feather Course pages.
