Oxford University Pistol Club is among the more distinguished clubs in the University, with a long history of producing some high quality shooters. Today's Club is one of the smaller and friendlier clubs, and provides an introduction to the world of pistol shooting disciplines. We will develop your skills as a shooter, and give you quality coaching from the start through to the top levels of OUPC shooting. This page will tell you the basics of the Club, and what you need to know before you decide to come and see if we're the club for you.
The Club trains in the Cricket Schools at the Iffley Road Sports Complex. To reach the cricket schools, go through the gates at the reception of the Sports Centre (you will need your University Card to get through them), and onto the running track. Continue straight down the left side of the track (past the seating stand) and the cricket schools is the long building on the left. Although a Virtual Tour of the sports centre is available here it is probably easiest to simply ask for directions at the Reception if you are unsure where to go.
Club training times may be found on the Termcard section of the website.
The Club exists for the provision of target shooting in the University over the pistol disciplines. These are essentially the standing-up shooting events and there are three principal disciplines we compete in, which are briefly explained here.
Membership costs £60 for the academic year (October to September), which covers compressed air, lead pellets, gun hire, and targets. Trips to other ranges cost extra.
The easiest is perhaps to e-mail one of the committee, who will be happy to talk to new members.
