Welcome

 

Welcome to the Rochford Airgun Club website. This site has been designed to provide you with information about us, and what we can offer you as a potential new member or if you just want somewhere to shoot. We aim to promote interest for both the competitive and fun shooter alike, whilst at the same time promoting Air Rifle safety.


We shoot every other Sunday and cater for Air Rifles and Air Pistols. Our 10-50yd plinking range has a wide variety of knockdown and paper targets. There is a full 30 target HFT course. The course is open every shoot, regardless of competition or non competition day. We hold various internal competitions on most shoot day's, please check the calendar above. This all takes place in a 3 acre private wood.


If you have never shot an air rifle before, and would like to try something different. Why not come along and try it. Shooting an air rifle is not difficult, but hitting a small target 100 feet away can be. We have plenty of people who can give you free and impartial advice on the various types of rifles, pellets and other associated equipment. Contact us now to arrange a visit. It will not cost you anything either, as your first visit is free.  (conditions apply)


If you just want somewhere safe to shoot, then non members are welcome on any shoot day (including competition days). Please see the information page for the facilities on offer, and the range fees.


We are a very friendly bunch, and are always happy to welcome new members. Our membership covers a wide age range including children (accompanied by an adult over 21 of course), and we have a wide knowledge base of anything airgun related. Please check our membership requirements on our information/membership page when applying. We are a non-profit club, so any residue funds are used for the benefit of our members.


 

History


 

The original Thorpe Hall & Wakering FTC was based at Baldwin's farm, Barling Magna, Essex. The club had been in existence for a number of years, and the site was an open field with various targets set at 10-50yds. 

Some members formed a new club (with the same name) and moved to a three-acre private wood situated between Hawkwell and Rochford. The new site was used for the first time on the 2nd July 2006, and went down extremely well with all our members. As of January 2012 the club has been re-named "Rochford AC", to be more fitting with our area location.
