Successful target shooting requires practice, skill, concentration and nerve.

Benefits from target shooting can include improvements in core strength, stamina, balance, concentration, hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

    Age is no barrier – it is truly a lifetime sport
    Disability is no barrier – people of all abilities can take part
    Gender is no barrier – male and female shooters can develop equal abilities
    Holistic – combines physical, technical and psychological development
    Very safe - target shooting is conducted under strictly controlled conditions
    Disciplined approach promotes responsibility - especially in young people
    Ferndown Gun Club has available for use all the equipment necessary
