Welcome to Romford Rifle and Pistol Club

 

Romford Rifle and Pistol club is a friendly club for juniors and seniors of all abilities to enjoy target shooting as a fun and competitive sport.

Target shooting is truly a sport for all people, because it is one of the very few sports where everyone – young or old, female or male, the less able-bodied, and people of all backgrounds can compete on equal terms.
The Club site and Ranges are located on a single level supporting wheelchair access.

The club has both indoor and outdoor ranges for both Air and .22 rim fire disciplines, both Rifle & Pistol. Ranges are at 10m (indoor), 25 yards, 50m and 100 yards. The Clubs ranges are open six days a week at varying times

Romford Rifle and Pistol Club

 

Founded in 1945 by ex-Home Guard personnel run continuously since, Romford Rifle and Pistol Club is a friendly club for all.
The ranges and club house were completely re-developed as part of the new leisure centre in 2008.

The club has members of all levels from Novice to County and National champions.
This depth of experience and knowledge can be invaluable to new members,
with advice on technique and improving your shooting, as well as what to buy and from where to obtain it.
Club members are only too happy to help and assist.

However to get a beginner up and running,
the club is able to provide all the necessary equipment before the need to buy their own,
allowing you to “try before you buy”.

There are many competitions for all levels of ability run both within and external
to the club for you to test your new found shooting skills….good luck!
