We offer a wide range of shooting disciplines with standards ranging from the highest levels of competition to those of a more social and relaxed style – with something for everyone in a club catering for ladies, gents and juniors.
The club organises ‘Open Shoots’ throughout the year which attract many members from throughout Victoria as well as some from inter-state. These shoots usually run from Saturday to Sunday and are not only great for competition but also offer a chance to socialise over meals and enjoy light entertainment, making for a very enjoyable weekend.
Ranges and general facilities at the club are constantly being upgraded by way of ‘working bees’ and by purchasing new equipment as it is needed. Ballarat can boast the best air pistol range in the State with other ranges also undergoing renovations to keep them up to standard and make improvements as required.
