The club presently has room and is looking for new members.
SBFTC has been around for over 14 years and on the current ground at the Broadlands Estate near Romsey since 2004. Primarily we are a field target club affiliated to the British Field Target Association (BFTA), but we also welcome and encourage other styles of air rifle shooting.
Being a BFTA affiliated club, we offer:
|BFTA qualified club instructor|
|Links to many other clubs and associations|
We have sizable grounds on the Broadlands Estate near Romsey with hard parking, a field for plinking and extensive woodland where we run club competitions during the summer. Whatever your main shooting interest, be it plinking or competition, practice really improves your success rate and there's always friendly help to sort out equipment problems, coach your technique or offer impartial advice on your next purchase.
The wooded area is shaded by mature trees keeping off the sun on hot days and light rain away when it's wet. It also has interesting and varied terrain from an area with 270° of shooting.
Being in a rural setting we don't have access to either electricity or water, so ensure you bring a supply of fluids as it can get quite hot in summer and nibbles to keep your sugar levels up. We currently lack toilet facilities, but have many trees! A permanent toilet is being investigated.
From autumn through to spring we compete in the team based Central Southern Region winter league against other clubs in the region.
Some of our members don't compete, so if you're not looking to take up competitive FT you're still very welcome and won't be in any way excluded from club activities.
