Disabled access and facilities at Bideford Target Shooting Club.
Bideford Target Shooting Club is in a unique position to be able to build and offer full disabled access to the sport of target shooting. OK were not quite there yet but were building the facilities to do just that!
Being in the position to build new ranges and facilities we are very much in mind of the whole community and want to encourage and welcome everyone to our sport. It's not a physical sport by any stretch of the imagination, no running, jumping,throwing,punching,swimming or even much walking to be honest but the mental, physical and competitive challenges do exist and able and disable as well as women,men and juniors can and do compete completely on a level playing field and target shooting is possibly the only sport that can offer that........Even blind or partially sighted people can take part and beat fully sighted people in this sport.......Have we got your attention yet???
So far the club has built outdoor range facilities, were working hard to get funding for the indoor ranges and club room. If you have a disability here is what we have on offer.
ALREADY IN PLACE. Disabled parking bays on a hard standing area located adjacent to the main range doors. Double sliding doors for easy and ample wheel chair access into the main building. Wheel chair access to all areas within the main range building. Full access to the main outdoor range area. Dedicated club members to place targets at all distances. The range is a grassed area so wheel chair access may be difficult during wet times! Full disabled toilet facilities with alarm. Benches and rests to shoot from. Coaches and Instructors to guide you to becoming Marksmen / women Automatic target changers on the indoor airgun range. Compressed air cylinders to charge air rifles on site. Full & free access to all club equipment for the first 12 months. Free Coaching and instruction.
The indoor ranges are in the planning stages but will have full disabled access once completed and it is our intention to have the facilities available for blind or partially sighted shooting.
