All Ranges Open
All ranges open as usual subject to booking a firing point.
Our top priority is the safety of our members, and for the time being we will continue to operate as before so our Covid safety protocols remain in force and all visitors must observe them. We will continue to encourage social distancing and the wearing of masks in the clubhouse. Pre-booking remains essential.
The booking system is now open for all ranges. [Book appointment]
Sessions are available until the end of October. We have increased the number of firing points available outdoors to 3 at 100yds and 6 at 50m. This is to allow for an expected increase in demand now that the Summer season cards have been issued and the shooting schedule is shorter than usual.
Shooters wishing to shoot at both distances in the same visit are reminded to ONLY book for the 100yd session. The duty officer will organise the actual firing point allocations on the day.
See Calendar for details. [Link to Calendar / Duty Rota]
For those who have forgotten how the sessions are organised, here is the timetable we try to work to for each range on the days they are open. [Link to Timetable]
Please Note: This is a guide. The Duty Officer has absolute control over the range and may, at their discretion, vary the timings to ensure the safe and effective operation of the range, should they feel that the situation warrants it.
We are now able to accept and welcome new members!
Everyone on our waiting list has been contacted and our first training sessions have taken place. If you have been invited, but not yet confirmed your attendance, please do so ASAP as the waiting list is starting to build up again.

You can register your interest in taking part in one or more of these competitions from the comfort of your own home by using the online booking system OR if you prefer the old-school way, come down to the club and sign your name on a bit of paper on the wall. Either way, you need to start thinking about your entries now.
Everybody hopes that the coming Winter season will signal the start of shooting getting back to ‘normal’, so if you want to do your bit to get things back the way they were, sign up and support the people and the leagues running the competitions.
The club has adopted a policy of supporting all our local leagues by entering at least one team (if possible) in all competitions.
Further information will be published here and/or distributed to members as it becomes available. Please watch this space.
We try, and sometimes we succeed!
The club was never built with this in mind but we do now have a ramp up to the front door, level access to the air range, and disabled toilets.
