CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Notice to Members

Oxford Road Indoor & Chesterton Outdoor Ranges

21st March 2020

The Committee have been monitoring events over the past weeks and having considered advice from both the government and our national shooting bodies, we have reluctantly made the decision to adopt the following with immediate effect:

1. All scheduled club activities and club nights are discontinued.

2. Both ranges are unavailable for member use until further notice.

3. Access to lockers in the member’s armoury is strictly by arrangement.

    (Please contact Frank Slade in advance - Tel: 07799 685333)

4. Further information will be made available via email and on the club’s website          as it becomes available. Please contact Frank Slade directly if you are not on the      internet.

5. The 2020 Annual General Meeting, normally held in April, has been postponed        indefinitely. The current Committee will remain in post during this period.

We will continue to review the situation and hope to return to normal range operation as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact the Committee.

Please keep yourselves safe.

Welcome to the Bicester Town & District Rifle & Pistol Club.  We have been in Bicester since 1906 and continue to maintain high standards of sporting excellence in a number of National shooting disciplines.

Our club caters for many types of shooting including Air rifle & pistol (.177 only), Smallbore (.22LR), Light Weight Sport Rifle ( .22LR), Muzzle Loading (Black Powder) and Centre Fire weapons.

We have an indoor 25 yard range with four firing points at Oxford Road in Bicester and an outdoor range with eight firing points at 50 metres and at 100 yards at Chesterton.

Everyone over the age of twelve (with parent/guardian present) is welcome, beginners and the more experienced.

The club has a wide selection of equipment and weapons for use by prospective members and instruction in the safe use and handling of weapons is given free of charge as is the more advanced coaching required for competitive shooting.
