Mani Silva

Mani Silva was brought up within a traditional shooting family in Portugal. Mani has been shooting from early age and as a teenager, competed  in trench disciplines. Clay pigeon shooting and game shooting have always been a passion of his.

Mani has competed in disciplines of clay pigeon shooting, mainly UT, Trap and DTL, having reached 6th place on the nationals. He also competed in European clay pigeon competitions. Mani competed at a high level for 25 years.

Mani has always expressed a real interest in teaching and bringing new people to the sport. Friends and colleagues used to ask for advice and tips to improve their shooting.

Naturally, the next step was coaching which he has successfully been doing for several years. 

With a lifetime of experience in shooting and hunting, Mani’s goal is now to share his passion and bring new people into the sport as well as helping experienced shooters to improve their shooting experiences.

Mani is a brilliant guy. Extremely well experienced at clay shooting and did a brilliant job at making us comfortable during our first time experiencing the sport. Will definitely look at coming back!

A special mention to Mani who oversaw the shooting experience – he was excellent, and his passion for clays was infectious. So much so that he has got me looking locally for where I can take it up as a hobby!
