“Great fun, thrill and adventure.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

This place is great fun, however it is very costly, especially when your rounds finishs very quickly and you want more bullets to shoot. The guide who showed us how to use the pistols was not very friendly, he was a very serious person- not sure if this is because of the activity we were learning or if it was his general personality???? However we did not let this spoil our fun. Myself and my partner(me being a lady) got to shoot a beretta and then the game was on:) the sport is a very exhilarating sport, especially if you have never shot a pistol before. Overall the activity was great, but the service could of done with a smile:). The grounds the range were set in we're beautifull, I will insist, you have to dress smart to go in the range - but do pack swim wear as there's is a pool there that is of service to paying guest.

We also ate at the restaurant on site - honestly the food was ok, nothing to really go in about. However I have tasted better in Barbados for a lot less money.

I would definately rate the range, especially if you want some friendly competitiveness with you partner.

Dave of Kendal Sporting is amazing. He created the perfect menu, ambiance, and energy for our special night.

I highly recommend this place for a fun evening of drinks and amazing food under the stars as well as a great venue for events.

“Great fun day out in a lovely location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2011

We visited Kendal Sporting yesterday to use the shooting facilities.

We started with a bit of archery, which we had to book, as it's run on request. The instructor was very knowledgeable, and spent time covering all the safety aspects as well as giving tuition. It was well worth the BD$40 each that we paid for it.

Next we did the clay pidgeon shooting, again, the range officer was very knowledgeable. With the clays, you get a box of 25 shotgun cartridges and we took it in turns, 5 shots each, working through a wide variety of traps, it was very enjoyable.

We had lunch in the restaurant, which has a good menu, and the food was really good, we ate at the bar and watched the sport on the television before shooting hand guns.

With the hand guns, safety and correct use of the weapons is even more drilled into you that with the shotguns, which is what you want at a gun range really. Full tuition was provided on how to load magazines, safe handling of the weapon, and how to make it safe after you have finished firing it. The cost varies depending on the gun (and the cost of the ammunition you use I assume), and they have a huge range of club guns that you can use, although they are keen to ensure that you don't try and choose anything you are not going to be able to handle, based on your experience.

Full safety equipment was provided for every activity, including ear defenders and goggles for the shooting.

Overall we had an excellent day out, we really enojyed the activities and the food. The staff were all very pleasant and extremely professional. If you are looking for an activity in Barbados that is a little bit different from the average tourist activity then we'd highly recommend it, and we'll certainly be making it a regular activity when we are here.

“This should be in the top 10!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2011

North of the airport in St. Phillip you will find Kendal Sporting Club which we found a bit by accident whilst finding the surf at Zed's a bit flat.

They have handgun and shotgun shooting ranges - about US$50 for 25 clays including cartridges or a bit more for 50 shots with 9mm, 357 magnum, etc. in their indoor or outdoor ranges. Very professional with a tutor showing you what to do and explaining the safety aspect of handling firearms. If you have never fired a handgun - this definitely worth an experience in a safe and friendly environment.

They also have Archery, Ping Pong, Pool Table, Darts, SkyTV, an excellent bar and pool bar ... and you can just turn up and use it all! We didn't have lunch here but it looked pretty good. Friendly staff and a great day out.

[If you want to shoot then you need to bring your passport or driving license]

Definitely going back.
