Staff are now finalising plans for a limited re-opening of Bisley ranges, initially weekends only, commencing Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May 2020 on:-

Rifle Ranges

Electronic targets only, one hour slots, one firer per target

Century Range (100, 300 and 600 yards)

Shotgun Ranges

4 layouts – English and Olympic Skeet, DTL, OT


Range bookings can be made from 0900 Tuesday 19th May.


The safety of our staff and shooters is our prime concern, and the experience of shooting at Bisley will be very different to normal. Detailed instructions, procedures and Risk Assessments will published Monday 18th May.

Finally a heartfelt plea – please do not try to contact the NRA offices to enquire about shooting at Bisley until Tuesday 19th May; the lion share of queries will be answered by the documents we will publish on Monday 18th.

Stay safe – we are looking forward to welcoming shooters back to Bisley, and will be thinking of those who decide to stay at home.
