HOW TO JOIN

Membership of Holwell Sports & Social club is included

with membership of the Rifle Club.


Fees & Subscriptions


Membership is open to all. There are various concessions for age, disability and student status but as a guide the current fees are in the range £35.00 to £80.00 per annum.


There is a “Green Fee” payable on each occasion you use the range.

This is currently £1.00 - £2.00 per visit according to status.


Procedure


On making an application to join the Rifle Club you will be asked to complete a declaration under Section 21 of the Firearms Act 1968 that you are not prohibited to possess firearms. You should be aware that we are required by law to submit the details of prospective members to the Leicestershire Police Firearms Licensing Department. All new members are required to serve a probationary period before being granted full membership of the Rifle Club.


If you do not hold a Firearm Certificate or are not known personally to at least 2 full members of the Rifle Club then you will not be permitted to shoot cartridge rifle on your initial visit.

Tuition


Tuition is available to all members and is a mandatory requirement for those new to the sport. New shooters are taught and supervised on a one-to-one basis until they have gained a level of proficiency that allows them to be supervised by the duty range officer.


The club has a ‘RIKA’ computer training device that we endeavour to use for initial instruction of all new shooters. This allows initial training to be carried out without live ammunition making learning to shoot cheaper and more effective.

Further details of the RIKA system may be found at www.rika.de

In the first instance, please send a brief message via the contact panel on our Home Page. We can then arrange a mutually convenient time and date for you to come to the range
