ELEY are proud to sponsor the Yeaveley Speed Steel events for the second year in a row. As its title sponsor, we are committed to raising the profile of Steel Challenge in the UK and help put on world-class events for UK shooters in 2021.
Sponsorship of the Yeaveley Speed Steel events is a natural fit for ELEY as we continue to produce the highest quality rimfire ammunition for competitive .22LR shooters with our ELEY action, ELEY action plus, ELEY force and ELEY contact brands.
Yeaveley Estate Shooting School boasts a rich history, being one of the first five shooting grounds in the country, it also provides an extensive clay shooting facility which is a challenge to both novice and experienced shooters. With its home based in Derbyshire, Peak District in the Midlands it is within easy reach for everyone.
The beautiful shooting grounds and well-appointed estate lodge offer the perfect spot for your corporate event, away day or private party, including that special Stag and Hen party. Yeaveley has on-site accommodation in 4 Cabins. The ‘Estate lodge’ has a fully licensed bar, to relax in after a busy day of activities.
The 2020 season got off to a great start, with an event hosted in October in-between pandemic lock-downs and travel restrictions. This event hosted two Steel Challenge disciplines and 80 competitors shooting Mini Rifle and Long Barrelled Pistol, won respectively by ELEY sponsored Shooters Nick Towndrow and Justin Cooper. Full results can be found here on the ELEY website.
Michael Atkinson, Brand Manager for ELEY, said: “Yeaveley is one the UK’s premier shooting grounds. Guy and Lesley, directors of Yeaveley Shooting Estate are forward thinking people and I’m excited how much of an appetite they have to help grow Steel Challenge in the UK and we’re proud at ELEY to be a part of it”.
