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.

FrontEntrance.jpgLocated 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.

If you or someone in your household has Covid-19 symptoms (or has had a positive test result) you should stay at home and must not attend the Centre under any circumstances.
