About us

We're a relatively small club that has a good crack at shooting in all sorts of disciplines. We mostly shoot Smallbore (.22 rimfire), Clay pigeon, Air rifle and Fullbore (big 7.62 rounds) but are open to new ideas about what areas to try next. This year we're trying to keep up the same amount of sessions, competitions and socials as safely as we can despite COVID-19 doing its best to stop us. At WURC you will receive one-on-one support for all the disciplines we offer, as well as invites to training weekends and a whole host of exciting events including the British Young Shooters Association Weekends, Clay Pigeon Outings, Charity Air Rifle Sessions and Warwick University Martial Arts and Target Sports Socials, plus much more. Just come along to our taster sessions later in the term or contact us on Facebook/email to find out more.

Key Information

  • *Unfortunately Due to Covid-19 Restricitions, we have had to postpone Saturday Shooting. However, we are hoping to relaunch this opportunity as soon as possible in-line with Government Guidance
  • The club uses a range of .22 calibre rifles on a 25-yard indoor range. We can also cater for air weapons and any firearms for which there is a significant amount of interest. We also have full-bore days.
  • All current students, staff and alumni are welcome to join us.
  • There are no skill level restrictions - we welcome both beginners and experienced shooters.
  • We are an off-campus sports club.
  • The best way to keep in contact with us is through our Facebook group, findable from our page @warwickurc. 
  • Club shooting sessions are every Saturday from 12 pm - 4 pm during term time, unless otherwise stated on this website and our Facebook page.*
  • Each shoot has a range fee of £4 for non-drivers and £3 for drivers.
  • The pick-up and drop-off point for shooting sessions is on-campus at the Piazza.
  • Sign up via the Rifle SU Page to attend a weekly session as places are limited, though we will make every effort to get you shooting
  • All fees must be made in cash at the club, they go directly to Solihull Rifle and Pistol Club.
  • Clay Pigeon Shooting:
    • We will be running termly or bi-termly clay pigeon sessions for those who are interested at our partnered ground Honesberie Shooting school, the first session being on the 31st of October,
    • This is more expensive than rifle shooting, around £65 per person depending on the number of people in attendence,
    • We aim to have at least 6 people (including 2 drivers) in each session which are fully coached by instructors at Honesberie,
    • In previous years we have competed in BUCS Clays which also offers very good value for money in terms of number of clays shot.

The Clubhouse

  • Our home club is Solihull Rifle and Pistol Club, it has a 25yard indoor range and an extensive covered air rifle range. There is also a large club room with tables and chairs, toilets and free parking. 
  • Ammunition costs begin at £5 for 50 rounds of .22 calibre, this will generally last for two sessions or more. Competition targets cost 15p, smaller targets are also available. Air rifle incurs a small charge. 
  • All purchased ammunition is stored at the club.
  • Food and Beverages are available at the club for a small cost.
  • The club is an indoor range however warm appropriate clothing is advised.
  • The club welcomes drivers with their own vehicles and will reimburse them their fuel costs.

The Club

  • We run regular socials and events, as well as getting involved with charity fundraisers and team Warwick programmes. 
  • There are several competitions running throughout the year, including BUCS, County, and home/away matches over multiple disciplines. We are also excited to be working towards a variety of competition this year.
  • Senior club members (both of WURC and Solihull RPC) provide coaching, advice and support free of charge. We also have experienced external coaches for one-off sessions.
