Facilities and Opening Times


The club has an indoor 4 lane 25-yard range which is certified for .22” rim-fire cartridge rifle shooting with a heated firing point and has four 10 metre electronic returning targets to support the 10 metre air disciplines. 

Adjacent to the range is a clubhouse with a small lounge, kitchen and toilet and the site has a car park.

Opening Times

The club meets on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening and Sunday morning. The range has been certified for multi-discipline use which enables all of the shooting disciplines to be undertaken concurrently.

Full members can apply to be issued with a range key (fee payable) and subject to club guidelines can attend the range outside the formal meetings and shoot. This is very popular and informal mid-week daytime meetings are organised by members.
