Alton Rifle Club is a small, friendly community small-bore rifle club, founded in 1936, with around 35 members drawn from Alton and the surrounding villages.
We offer two shooting disciplines at our 5 lane, 25 yard indoor target range:
- Prone target rifle, every Thursday evening starting at 6pm;
- Light Sporting Rifle, every Wednesday at 7pm;
Further details are available on the General Info page.
We are Home Office-approved and affiliated to the National Smallbore Rifle Association, the Hampshire Smallbore Rifle Association and the Southampton and Portsmouth District Associations. Competitive target shooting is our passion and we compete in County, Regional and National competitions by post all year round. Members also have the chance to compete in open competitions, shoulder to shoulder, across Hampshire and at Bisley.
If you’d like to try your hand at competitive target shooting then please navigate to our membership page and fill in an application. No previous experience is necessary and we supply all the equipment and instruction you need to shoot safely and successfully. If you are an experienced shooter, new to the area and wishing to join an active and friendly local club, then we’d love to hear from you.
