Welcome to Deal and District Rifle ClubWelcome to Deal and District Rifle ClubWelcome 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.

Club Secretary
