Leagues – Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays and more
Join a league! Your game will benefit from regular shooting, instruction and coaching. It’s a great way to meet fellow shooters and share experiences with others who have similar, and sometimes more advanced, skills. Leagues typically run for two months and meet weekly, although schedules can vary depending on the members. To learn more about leagues, contact Marci Welton at email@example.com or 602 571-4055.
Corporate Events/ Team Building
Ben Avery Clay Target Center is the ideal venue for a unique corporate event, birthday party, or banquet. Do something different for your next corporate event or special outing and arrange for your group to shoot skeet, trap, or sporting clays at Ben Avery Clay Target Center. We can provide a coach, rental equipment, ammunition, and ear/eye protection in a safe and friendly atmosphere. After they have finished shooting, guests can gather in the OneAZ Pavilion for some after-event festivities. The OneAZ Pavilion banquet hall seats 350 people and is ideal for dinners and meetings.
