Description

Youngsters, Adults, all welcome!

Whether you are a beginner, someone returning to the sport after a break, or an experienced shot, you will be welcome at Bookham Rifle Club's Open Day. Target sports are very enjoyable, popular with men and women and girls and boys alike and very accessible to those with disabilities. The Club has over 200 members, with ages ranging from 8 to over 80.

Bookham Rifle Club has recently undergone a major refurbishment, and has some of the best facilities in the country with 8 ranges from 6 yards to 100 yards. It has a strong tradition of welcoming and encouraging newcomers to the sport. It is approved for Air Rifle/Pistol shooting and .22 Rimfire Rifles.

Each session starts with an introductory talk, covering safety, the basic techniques and what it is that makes target sports so fascinating and enjoyable.

Anyone joining the Club on the day will have the cost of their Open Day tickets refunded to them. For information about the Club visit its website

Participants have a choice of disciplines:

* The Olympic disciplines of Air Pistol and Air Rifle Shooting - unlimited pellets and targets. Probably the easiest introduction to the sport, and very popular with youngsters. Shot standing or from a bench. Ages 8+

* .22 Rimfire Prone shooting - 20 cartridges. Traditional target shooting at its best and most accurate. Shot lying down with bolt action rifles. Ages 10+

* .22 Rimfire Lightweight Sporting Rifle - 40 cartridges. Probably the most exciting discipline. Shot standing or from a bench with bolt action and semi-automatic rifles. Ages 10+

* Hunter Field Target or HFT - Demonstrations of this exciting arm of the sport, and - subject to availability on the day - the chance to try it free of charge.
