Air Rifle Range

air_rifle

We have a purpose built outdoor air rifle range available all year round.  We have 4 targets available during each session.  Equipment and instructors can be arranged, however pre-booking is essential. 

Air rifle shooting sessions can accommodate a maximum of 12 participants per session.  Additional sessions can be booked. Each session will cost 40 and lasts between 1hr and 1hr 30mins.  The air rifle range currently has no lighting facilities and therefore can operate during daylight hours only.

It is essential written parental consent is gained and confirmation that the individual is not subjected to any restrictions under the Firearms Act before a young person is allowed to take part in air rifle shooting. A consent form can be downloaded by clicking here  or by looking in our forms section.

It is advised visitors carry out their own risk assessment taking into account the age, experience and needs of their own group.  Copies of our risk assessments for activities are available to download from the forms section.

Visitors who hold their own air rifle qualifications may hire our facilities without supervision, however, evidence of qualifications held must be provided in advance.
