The Club has its own range, which was completely modernised and soundproofed in 1987, and has been further upgraded on several occasions since. This is situated just off Springfield Road, opposite the new Bovis build near the Scout Headquarters


The Club provides a variety of 0.22 rim fire rifles, .177 match quality air rifles and air pistols for Members' use.   We also have Qualified shooting Coaches, including County & National Coaches, for both Rifle and Pistol.


The indoor range has 5, 20 yard shooting lanes, certified for 0.22 rifles in 3  positions, standing, kneeling and prone and centre fire, pistol-calibre rifles, standing position only. It is equipped with turning targets at 20 yards and with target changers for 10 metre airgun shooting. We have also much improved lighting systems for both the 20yd targets and the 10 metre targets together with improved lighting over the firing points. A new ventilation system compliments the already high standard of facilities

Range Closure, now Re-opened, note AGM 28th October below

Please note the AGM of the WTSC will take place on 28th October at 7-30pm in the club room.


We would like as many members as possible to attend as this is your club and the decisions we make regarding new officers and any changes will affect everyone.

Although Covid 19 restrictions are relaxed we would ask any one attending to have a mask available and carry out essential hand sanitising etc before the AGM. there are various facilities  around the club entrance for use by members. Many thanks

Update as of 21st September 


The club is now fully open.


Please respect wishes of members regarding the wearing of masks.

There are limited options for new probationary members because of a lack of club coaches due to illness (not covid). This should be resolved in 4-6 weeks, hopefully. Keep your eyes on the website and updates will be sent as they arrive.



Well, its finally here. I am prepared to fully open the club from Monday 19th July. However I would expect sensible behaviour, ie masks whilst in close proximity in the club room but may be removed whilst shooting. As most of you may be aware we are not charging subscriptions for the rest of this year but come October it will be back to normal subs before the 31st of £!45.00 and £155.00 after that date.

Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Regretably the Wantage Target Shooting Club was closed until further notice in accordance with Government instructions 


Keep your eyes on the website and we will update the information as soon as we have any further information.
