Tunbridge Wells Target Shooting Club
is a Home Office approved club
. Due to an overwhelming level of enquiries, regrettably we have had to suspend taking in new members until further notice. As a responsible club
, every effort is made to ensure that our members are suitable people to handle firearms, and our application procedure will necessarily involve some questions which will help us verify that.All prospective new members
are welcome to take part in three sessions before deciding whether or not to join our club. These initial sessions begin on the first Sunday of the month and are led by qualified instructors. After the first three sessions you will be asked to pay your Probationary subscription – this covers your first three months of membership. To progress to full membership
, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you are safe to be on a range and that you have made a minimum of six attendances during your three month probationary period.Applicants under 14 are welcome
, but are only permitted within the club providing a parent or guardian remain on the premises at the same time and may be required to assist in their supervision.The Club provides basic equipment for newcomers
but as they progress most shooters realise the benefits of investing in their own equipment, and this is something for which we always provide guidance. There are no storage facilities at the club for members to use.The Club is run by the members for the members
. In accepting membership you will be expected, from time to time, to take part in both the running of the Club and maintenance of the facilities.
Contact the club via our contact page
and arrange a visit to the club on a Sunday for an initial introductory chat, to view our facilities, discuss membership and the shooting disciplines we participate in. This is also an opportunity to complete/submit a membership application form (a passport type photograph will be required).
