There’s lots of fun to be had with Wantage Target Shooting Club!

The Club has Home Office Approval for Pistol calibre rifles up to .455" standing at 20yds, .22" rifles standing kneeling and prone and muzzle loading pistols upto .455" standing at 20yds. We are also registered for Fullbore shooting at Ottmoor and Bisley as Affiliated members of the Oxford Rifle Association (ORA) http://oxonra.org

Please note:

 

 

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

 

Shooters with physical disabilities are welcome.There is a ramp, giving wheelchair access and full disabled toilet facilities. Assistance with rifle support is also available.

 

Adult Membership is currently £145 a year, Probationary membership is £97.50. This covers all the costs apart from targets and ammunition and includes full liability insurance.

 

These figures will likely increase due to increased electricity cost.

The Range is now fully open and is also open on a Friday evening from 7pm until 9 pm
