2021 marks an important year in the calendar at Teasses as we celebrate 25 years since the current owners purchased the Estate and made it their home [you can find out more about the last 25 years at Teasses here]. Hand in hand with the purchase of the Estate, came the establishment of a very successful shoot at Teasses, which has grown through the years in the care of Kenny, our Head Gamekeeper.
To acknowledge this important milestone, it seemed only appropriate that Teasses should have its very own Shooting Club. The Club was launched in recognition of the kind support of our clients many of whom return, year after year, to enjoy the sport and the unique company of “shooting enthusiasts”. The Club strives to create an opportunity for like-minded people to connect and build a community of country pursuits aficionados.
Teasses hosted its Inaugural Shooting Club Day on Saturday 22nd May – and we could have not asked for a better day indeed! After weeks of interminable rain, hail, frost and wind, the sun was shining upon Teasses, lifting everyone’s spirits. The Inaugural Day was the perfect opportunity for the team to showcase our Simulated Game Days, an activity many of our members hadn’t had the chance to experience before and thoroughly enjoyed!
Simulated Game Days offer out-of-season practice (and fun!), as well as guaranteed targets. Club Members were kept in the “hot seat” – especially when someone decided to turn up the traps’ speed on the second drive! Members shot in pairs, with one shooting, one re-loading to spread the enjoyment and encourage participation. Barrels ran hot and luckily, extra cartridges were on hand.
The day run as a condensed version of our Simulated Game Days, with a variety of drives, a scenic break for elevenses and a delicious barbecue lunch, featuring Teasses’ own venison burgers. In addition to the sporting fun, the convivial atmosphere is what really made this day a special one – we’ve seen new friendships being forged, old ones rekindled and really enjoyed the sense of community the Club strives to achieve.
We are proud that the Inaugural Day was a success, as well as a testament to all of the team’s hard work – on the day, but also in the last 25 years. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our Members back at Teasses for the next Club events – and of course we remain available for any new enquiries for all our sporting activities. Come and enjoy the Teasses Experience!
