Ruislip Rifle Club provides instruction and facilities to enable members to practice the sport of target shooting in a competitive yet friendly environment.

Range Closed

After 49 years, our range beside the railway tracks at West Ruislip has now closed, due to be demolished in November to make way for HS2.

However, the club still exists, we have teams in the Middlesex League and other competitions, and although our members are now spread around a number of different ranges over a wide area, we are all determined that our club will continue and we will make every effort to keep our identity until we have our own range facilities again. Ruislip Rifle Club has been consistently more successful than its size would lead you to expect, producing (and attracting) many international and county-level shooters over many years. Sadly, in our current state, we cannot cater for new shooters, and so we have closed our membership for the time being. 

The main disciplines we cater for are:-
  • Smallbore Rifle

Club History

Ruislip Rifle Club was founded as a Home Guard Rifle Club in 1944 and began shooting on various local wartime military ranges. This ended with a spell shooting in the old 4MU depot by West Ruislip station.
Permission to use this range was withdrawn in 1956 and the club eventually received permission to build a range on our current site in 1957.

The Club did most of the work and this new building opened in 1959. It was the club's first permanent home, although not so permanent as it turned out because it was a wooden building that was destroyed by fire in 1966. Unfortunately many of the early club records were lost in this fire.
Subsequent to this setback, the present brick building was erected, again by the efforts of the members, and opened in 1969.

Recently, the future of the club has been made uncertain by the proposed HS2 railway. Current plans would see the club's range building demolished. We are currently searching for a suitable new site in the Ruislip area.

60th Anniversary 

In 2004, the Club celebrated its 60th anniversary. The main event to mark this milestone was a Dinner for all club members, past and present, and invited guests. The dinner was held in the London and Middlesex Rifle Asociation's clubhouse at Bisley, at the end of the NSRA Bisley Rifle Meeting and British Championships. The dinner was well supported by members and former members, and we took advantage of the event to ask Tim Elson, the British Champion in 2003, to present our prizes and awards.


We are not accepting new members due to the loss of our range. Existing members can continue to shoot as members of Ruislip Rifle Club.

Bisley Highs

For a small club, with just a 4-lane indoor range, we consistently achieve more than you would think in competitions. This was certainly true this year at the National Small-bore Championships help at Bisley in August.
