COVID-19 : Target Shooting from 14th September 2020


Further to their announcement yesterday the Government has confirmed there are no new restrictions on the number of participants for outdoor sports such as target shooting as long as (1) the event is formally organised by a club or organisation; and (2) the relevant governing body has published guidelines on how to participate safely.
