Tunbridge Wells Borough Council has submitted planning permission to build luxury houses on Tunbridge Wells Target Shooting Club's range - thus closing it down. The deadline is 9th July to lodge objections, and the club desperately needs your help.

We need to lodge over 100 objections by 9th July in order to have a chance of being heard.

Please could you take 5 minutes to lodge an objection to the loss of yet another shooting facility?

  • The council is supposed to offer us an alternative location, but they have not.
  • We are the second biggest shooting facility in Kent, and the loss of our club and our facilities would have a significant impact on shooting in Kent.
  • We are the venue for open shoots on a regular basis.
  • We are the training ground for national-level shooters, both senior and junior.

To lodge an objection, go to https://twbcpa.midkent.gov.uk/.../applicationDetails.do...

You first need to register, and then you can log in and lodge your objection by clicking on 'make a comment'.

Thank you.
From the whole of TWTSC, Thank You.

The NSRA AGM will no longer be taking place in July as scheduled.

The event is being moved into the 4th quarter of the year and the date will be published as soon as possible.

Benchrest shooting is a fast developing discipline and many people have requested assistance interpreting the NSRA Benchrest Rules to make sure they are shooting in the correct way. 

This has prompted the NSRA to produce the attached document, “NSRA Clarification of Benchrest Rules”. It provides an explanation of the Rules and is supported by pictures to illustrate their application. It should be used in conjunction with the full version of the NSRA Rules and Regulations which can be found HERE

The Government has announced a 4-week pause at Step 3 and therefore the current Step 3 restrictions remain in place until 19 July. Although there has been some easing in restrictions nationally, they have no impact on target shooting and the rules remain the same. Individuals and clubs should continue to operate as in the current Step 3 outlined in NSRA Target Shooting in England Roadmap. The Government has said that it will review the data after 2 weeks to see if the risks have reduced and will inform if the 19th July date for Step 4 is to be changed. The NSRA will monitor the position and inform as the situation changes.

Due to restrictions slowly lifting Martin from Cheshunt Rifle & Pistol Club was finally able to get his hands on the fantastic 1st prize. He collected the Walther LG400 today from the NSRA head office. Although you can’t tell behind his mask, Martin was very happy with his prize.

The NSRA represents around 900 clubs which cover a diverse range of disciplines. The clubs all have their own “character” and most members and committee members put in an inordinate amount of work to maintain them. Across these clubs some are mainly focussed on recreational shooting. However, others have a more competitive focus and aspire to enrol, nurture and prepare high quality competitive shooters – many of whom aspire to represent their county, region or country in high level competition.

At the NSRA we receive a great many enquiries from people wanting to find a club in their area. The majority of these are new to shooting and really don’t know (or only have a vague idea) which discipline they wish to try. However, we do get enquiries from people who want to compete from the start and aspire to Commonwealth Games or Olympics or just to be, “…the best they can be…” Clearly, if this latter group are directed to a club that has a sole purpose of recreation, shooting non-ISSF disciplines or has no facilities or coaching available for these disciplines then sending them to these clubs would not be suitable and could result in them not taking up the sport. Further to this we often get current shooters who would like to join another, more competitive club to be with like-minded individuals, appropriate facilities or good coaching.

The rate of progress with the renovations and alterations at NSRA Aldersley has far outstripped my wildest expectations. Our volunteers have been amazing and we are very grateful for all the time they have given so generously. It has been great team effort with members of all three ‘in-house’ clubs (Aldersley Aigunners – our over fifties group, Goodyear Rifle Club and Lucas Rifle and Pistol Club) coming together to help.
