COVID - 19 (Coronavirus)

The leisure centre has been closed since March because of 'lockdown' requirements and consequently so has the range. It is not known at the moment when the range will be re-opened. New safety procedures will be introduced for a period which will limit the number of people allowed in the range at a time and a booking system will be introduced. This will limit the amount of shooting opportunities available for existing members. Because of this, the committee has decided that it is necessary to decline any new requests for membership until further notice. Additionally, we will not be able to accept visits to the range from non-members.

Competitions

The next competition will be Multi-Target Underlever Rifle and will be held on Friday 27th March.
Cancelled

Competition details and results can be viewed here.

Welcome

Target shooting is one of the 26 Olympic and 21 Paralympic Sports, as well as being one of the events that make up Modern Pentathlon. It is not generally seen as a mainstream activity, but thanks to London2012 and the success of Team GB, the sport of target shooting has seen a marked increase in interest from all ages and abilities.

Target shooting is a sport that anyone, of any age, gender and physical ability can participate in along side each other. It can inspire those individuals who aren't particularly interested in, or capable of taking part in, the “popular” sports.

Ferndown Gun Club has one of the most active memberships of any target shooting club in South West England. Our club continues to produce many of the area’s top competitive shooters over a wide range of disciplines. 

Ferndown Gun Club is a Disability Hub Club accredited by British Shooting and Disability Shooting Great Britain.
