Small-bore Shooting Lessons

The LRC is rightly proud of its sporting heritage and the championship shooting facilities available at the Centre. The Centre is warm and dry with all activities taking place indoors.

As the home of the National Governing Body for small-bore shooting, visitors to the Lord Roberts Centre can expect the very best introduction to this exciting and challenging sport, with excellent facilities, expert tuition and modern equipment all housed in a safe, purpose built environment. Many major competitions are hosted at the LRC each year and you will be using state of the art equipment as used by the country’s top sports men and women... so come along soon and ‘Have a Go’...!

We cater for all ages and levels of shooting ability at the LRC, from total novice to national competitive standard. So if you are looking for ideas to celebrate a special event, a birthday (all ages..!), or if you would like to organise a company ‘team building activity’, consider the LRC a venue ‘with a difference’. Call us to discuss details...

Just some of the target shooting ‘experiences’ we offer at the Lord Roberts Centre:

  • ‘Try a Shoot’ – call to book a range and an Instructor will be happy to take you through the safety procedures and have you shooting in next to no time!
  • Fire target air rifles and live .22 sporting rifles on our indoor ranges.
  • Birthday parties and special occasions – bring along a group of youngsters for a fun shoot (please note that children will need to be at least 4’ 7” in height and physically strong enough to hold a rifle, however it is possible to shoot from a seated position). You will be well looked after in a safe purpose built environment with friendly, qualified instructors.
  • Corporate activities – you can use the LRC’s superb conferencing facilities followed by a ‘team building’ shoot.
  • Company Christmas parties.
  • Stag and Hen parties.
  • Youth shooting: Schools, Cadets, Scouts and Youth Groups.
  • The LRC would be very happy to welcome larger groups. Please get in touch to discuss.

(Restrictions apply and the Centre reserves the right to refuse admittance).

We also have excellent cafe facilities where you can enjoy hot and cold food.

If you would like to book any of the above activities contact the LRC on 01483 485522 or email for our prices and latest offers. We look forward to welcoming you..!


Target Shooting ‘A Sport for Life’

Shooting truly is a sport for all. Visitors to the Centre do not need a firearms licence. They do not have to own a gun or wear special clothing! The Centre will provide everything at very modest rates. Once hooked it may well become ‘A Sport for Life...!’

So if you would like to try shooting in superb, modern, Olympic standard facilities with excellent instruction on hand to ensure the correct techniques are taught, from introductory level to advanced coaching, contact the Lord Roberts Centre to book your event.

Not Just a Sport for the Boys!

Yes... it's a fact! Many top international shooters are women and it's never too late to learn! It’s not unusual for every member of a family to enjoy the sport of small-bore shooting from 10 metre air rifle and 6 yard air pistol to .22 sporting rifle with little or no recoil. You do not have to be physically strong or even particularly fit, so as long as you can safely handle a gun (and we will teach you..!) you can take up this popular sport which is one of the safest group participation activities on record!

So why not book a ‘Try a Shoot’ session, either individually or with a group of friends. You will be amazed at the results you achieve.
