Welcome to the Twickenham Rifle & Pistol Club website.
We are a small, friendly and family orientated sports club, founded in 1903 and an active member of the local Richmond Upon Thames and Twickenham community.
Our club is currently full, but we do occasionally have vacancies and are equally happy to welcome absolute novices as we are Olympic triallists, indeed we have a particularly high number of families who join the club and shoot together for fun on a Sunday afternoon. Target shooting requires concentration and co-ordination rather than physical strength and athletisism and so is equally suitable for men, women, young and old, able bodied and disabled to participate and compete together.
Target shooting is an inclusive activity, men and women, young and old can all successfully compete together, and the disciplines we follow here at Twickenham RPC have been an integral part of the modern Olympic Games since their inception in 1894.
Twickenham is one of the oldest and most respected clubs of its kind in the United Kindom and members have been very successful over the years. We continue to enter multiple teams for competition in both the Middlesex and Surrey County Leagues and whilst joining a league is not obligatory we do encourage members to enter as there is no better way to measure your improvement than by shooting under competitive conditions!
The club shoots a number of different disciplines on-site; with air rifles and target pistols shot on our two 10 metre indoor ranges and .22 target rifles shot on our indoor 25 metres range. We also have additional ranges outdoors for those shooting 25 metre, 50 metre and 100 metre .22 competitions although the use of these ranges tends to be restricted to the summer months.
In addition to the ranges we also have extensive preparation rooms, storage areas, offices and a canteen which is the heart of the club whenever we are open and which is where the social & non-shooting members spend their time.
For Full Bore, shotgun or to shoot at distances of over 100 metres club members will often decamp to the National Ranges at Bisley just 25 minutes away.
Target Shooting is one of the UK's most popular past times and you would be most welcome to join us! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest
