Sorry but due to COVID – 19 the Rifle Club and associated HFT activities are currently closed
The club has been a mainstay of the local area for many years competing in local rimfire rifle, Bench Rest and HFT (Hunter Field Target) both shoulder to shoulder with other local clubs and postal with clubs from other parts of the county.
The range is situated in Framfield Road close to the railway station. As legislation in regards to firearms has become more draconian and led to shooting sports decline the clubs numbers have dwindled. However the introduction of a Hunter Field Target section has led to a resurgence of interest both in HFT and indoor air rifle shooting with lively and informative evenings shooting 25yd benchrest and knockdown type competitions based on the HFT format.
The HFT is situated in a picturesque piece of woodland a short drive from the main club. As an affiliated UKAHFT club the rules under which the targets are shot are standardised and enable club members to venture into the national series held country wide throughout the summer and compete without trepidation.
Equally the club supports the Southern Hunters Series and competes against local Sussex based teams in informal HFT competition.
All this has been achieved in a short period of time with the enthusiasm of the founding members and their hard work really paying off.
