Welcome to Deal and District Rifle Club
East Kent’s premier indoor rifle club.
It is with great reluctance that from Tuesday 17 March 2020 the committee have decided to close the club.
The committee have been continuously monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice.
The safety and well-being of our members/volunteers is the most important factor and therefore the only action for all involved is club closure for the foreseeable future. We will be continually reviewing the situation, please bear with us as we work to secure a future opening date.
Announcements will be made by email, WhatsApp and our website.
We are truly sorry that we have had to make this extremely difficult decision and thank you for your patience understanding and support in this unprecedented situation.
We wish our members a safe and healthy outcome in these challenging times.
On behalf of the committee
Our friendly and welcoming club is popular amongst local residents and having members with years of professional experience on hand to help and advise, this is the perfect place to learn, practice and perfect precision shooting in a professional, safe and controlled environment.
We have a club room with tea and coffee making facilities, free Wi-Fi, male and female toilets and the club is completely wheelchair friendly so we are able to cater for everyone.
The club is located in the heart of the historic seaside town of Deal, Kent and our goal at the club is to promote the safe use of firearms, in the pursuit of target shooting in its various forms, from air guns to pistol calibre carbines/rifles.
The Club offers an indoor range with four 25 metre lanes, all with adjustable height benches and automatic target retrieval for convenience and safety.
You will be able to shoot the following disciplines:
Various competitions are run throughout the year in most disciplines and all members are welcome to participate, regardless of skill level. We shoot both fixed and turning targets.
As well as our indoor range, we regularly arrange days at outside ranges with the chance to shoot distances up to 600metres using centrefire rifles.
We are always keen to welcome new members to the club.
