Welcome to the Weybridge Rifle and Pistol Club Website that I hope you find it of interest and provides you with a few answers to some questions about and the sport of target shooting.
Many who have not shot before have concerns about handling firearms but contrary to popular belief target shooting is a very safe sport due to the strict controls that are employed and the way firearms are controlled.
Shooting is an Internationally recognised sport and nationally has produced many medals for England at the Olympic and Commonwealth games. The sport itself draws on an individual’s co-ordination, concentration and attention to detail rather than the more physical aspects, although these are still important. Many people are able to compete without being disadvantaged by physical constraints.
Established over 100 years ago our club is one of the oldest in the country and held in high regard by the target shooting fraternity. Being an old established club does not mean it is “old fashioned”, indeed quiet the opposite is true; it has always moved with the times and has often lead with innovative ideas.
Whether you are a novice to shooting or an experienced shot but possess a genuine interest in the sport of target shooting the Weybridge Rifle and Pistol Club could be well worth a closer look.
