All new members are required to complete a course of instruction before they can participate fully in a normal club session. For prone rifle, this usually takes place at weekends over 4 to 6 weeks. The purpose is to introduce the new shooter to all aspects of shooting including safety and range ettiquette. At the end of the course, the new shooter will be able to safely join in with established members on ordinary club sessions without requiring constant one-to-one supervision or adversely affecting their own or others' performance. Instruction and further coaching continue to be offered, but on an "as required" basis.

Our volunteer club instructors give up a significant amount of time to these initial instruction courses, and each course is limited to a small number of participants as instruction needs to be on a one-to-one basis. 

When we open up membership, places on the next instruction courses fill up quickly and we often have to close membership again after a short time. We do not operate a waiting list, in order to encourage those wishing to take up this sport to try one of the other nearby clubs that might be more able to accept new members. The Middlesex Small-Bore Rifle Association has around 20 affiliated clubs in, or just outside, the county of Middlesex.

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept any more new members that require instruction for the time being. When we are in a position to accept new members again we will post a notice here inviting you to contact us.
In the meantime, we recommend you try one of our neighbouring clubs:

Why is your membership closed for so much of the time?
