Hello and Welcome to the official Swansea University Shotgun & Rifle page
Our club mainly focuses on .22 Calibre Small Bore Rifle target shooting at a nearby range. We are very much a mixed ability group that focuses on development so we can participate in local competitions, BUCS and Varsity. We also aim to give our members as many opportunities at new experiences (e.g. fullbore target shooting) as possible demonstrated by our annual trip to Bisley. We usually shoot Wednesday afternoon and Sundays.
The joining fee (standard membership) is £160 for the year. This covers your insurance costs, use of the club range, equipment and firearms. An additional cost to consider is the ammunition used while training.
Shotgun a relatively new side to our club. We shoot on Wednesday afternoons and Saturdays - usually at South Wales 2000 or Crynant shooting grounds, where we shoot either sporting or down-the-line clays. In terms of competitions, we attended BUCS in December, coming 12th overall, a great standing for a new club amongst several long-standing shooting clubs.
This year, we hope to attend again, as well as adding a few more shooting competitions before and after for some good practice and fun! An especially big competition for the coming year will be Varsity 2023!
As a club, we are welcoming to all members, from beginners to weathered clay shooters, having a coached taster day penned in for beginners in October. We are looking to allow a maximum of 30 shotgun members this year, with the top 12 going to competitions as an A and B team.
It’s our hope that this year, we can continue becoming a cohesive team and further develop in events and numbers – we look forward to welcoming anyone who wants to give it a go! Membership is £20 for the year but additional costs such as ammunition, coaching, and shotgun hire are not included.
