Our club mainly focuses on .22 Calibre Small Bore Rifle target shooting at a nearby range. We are very much a mixed ability group that focus on development so we can participate in local competitions, BUCS and Varsity. We also aim to give our members as many opportunities at new experiences as possible demonstrated last year by the variety of trips that were ran to allow members try out full bore rifles and clay pigeon shooting. Both trips were a great success and are being planned and expanded again for this year. We will be having 40 Rifle members this year, with the aim for everyone to get some competition experience through the year. 

Shotgun a new section of the club, this being its second year of existence - we shoot on Wednesday afternoons, usually shooting at the South Wales 2000 or Crynant shooting grounds, where we shoot either sporting or down-the-line clays. In terms of competitions, we attended BUCS in DecemberThis year, we hope to attend again, as well as adding a few more shooting competitions before and after for some good practice and fun! 

As a club, we are welcoming to all members, from beginners to weathered clay shooters, having a coached taster day penned in for beginners in October. We are looking to allow a maximum of 30 shotgun members this year. 

It’s our hope that this year, we can continue becoming a cohesive team and further develop in events and numbers – we look forward to welcoming anyone who wants to give it a go!
