Did you notice the changes to the range in our last post?
Over the Easter weekend our volunteers were hard at work on range improvements again and have updated firing points 4 and 5 to now have folding benches, removing the old, tired shooting bays. The whole range is now much more open and easy to use for everyone.
Thank you to all involved, a great job as always!
If you are interested in taking up shooting, please send us a message, we would love to hear from you.
Over the Easter weekend we hosted members of Whittlesey 41 Club and ran guest day at the range. It was great to see everyone enjoying taking part in some of the different types of shooting we can do at the club. We hope to see everyone again soon!
If you are interested bringing a local group to the club for a guest day, please get in touch as we can talk you through the process.
Whether it is air rifle or pistols, springers or PCPs we shoot it all!
If this sounds like something you want to try, please drop us a message and we can arrange for you to come down to the the club! No experience or equipment is necessary for you to take part, we can provide everything you need!
As a club we are passionate about introducing new people to shooting and we regularly run open days and guest days to introduce new people to this amazing sport.
For this reason we have taken the decision to purchase a new ‘youth’ rifle which is specifically designed to be used by younger people while shooting, it is a single shot .22LR rifle and has a shorter stock so people of all sizes can safely use it.
We are often asked, how old do people need to be to shoot, we don’t have a set age at our club, we normally suggest around 10 or 11 but we have introduced younger people in the past, the two main things we look for are:
1) How mature is the shooter? 2) Is the shooter physically able to safely control a rifle?
This rifle will allow people who are mature enough to take part in our sport but aren’t large enough or physically strong enough to use an adult sized rifle to take their first steps into shooting.
If you or someone you know is interested in trying shooting, please send us a message and we would be happy to talk to you about next steps!
As part of the Whittlesey Sports Association Open Day, the Whittlesey Rifle Club will be opening our range for the public to try shooting Air Weapons.
The Range will be open from 13:00 to 17:00 on Sunday 12-Sep-2021.
It is a great opportunity for anyone to come and see our range and also give it a try!
