The NSRA Aldersley facility in the West Midlands is unique in the UK. Alongside an outdoor range for smallbore rifle shooting up to 100 yards there is a purpose-built centre accommodating all levels of indoor shooting with smallbore rifles, airguns & crossbows, from beginners and casual shooters through to the sport's elite competitors.
Located at Aldersley Leisure Village, Wolverhampton, it is the home to club shooters, regional, and national squads. Many organisations with links to target shooting regularly use the centre. There is ample parking, including disabled spaces.
The centre is disabled friendly. It has facilities for acoustic/VI shooting and benchrest rifle shooting, and for deaf shooters a "traffic light" system is available that relays range commands visually. All of the indoor ranges and the outdoor firing point are fully accessible for wheelchair users.

Acoustic air rifle shooting for visually impaired shooters.
NSRA Aldersley has the equipment - special targets and adapted air rifle sights - to allow visually impaired shooters to compete. The sight, mounted of the rifle in place of a conventional one, detects the light reflected from the target and generates a tone of varying pitch which the shooter hears via headphones.
The centre's shop provides shooting supplies and light refreshments. A meeting/class room and full toilet facilities are available.
For casual customers and beginners all necessary equipment is available for hire, and instruction is available from qualified staff.
NSRA Aldersley has facilities and its own club to support shooters of any level.
Events, such as competitions, leagues, and instruction can be arranged for any group of users. Please contact us for more information.
