Saturday 2 June to Sunday 10 June

Please play your part in the year’s biggest event to promote shooting to the public.

We need your help to ensure that your club joins in to make National Shooting Week, a truly successful and exciting initiative.

Since 2007, National Shooting Week has introduced thousands of new people to the sport of shooting. This is entirely down to hundreds of forward-thinking clubs, grounds and ranges who have organised local events across the country. Apart from introducing new people to shooting, many event organisers have increased their memberships or boosted revenue as a result.  Media coverage of National Shooting Week has reached millions of people helping to get our message across and to protect your sport.

In this Olympic year, National Shooting Week will take place between Saturday 2nd June and Sunday 10th June 2012. With shooting, firearms legislation and young people’s access to guns under scrutiny in Parliament, there has never been a more important time to introduce new people to the sport. All we need from you is a commitment to run an open day(s) where the public can come and try shooting during the Week. 

To sign up to become an Event Organiser, please visit  and complete the registration form online. This will only take a couple of minutes. You will then receive an Organiser’s Pack to help you promote your open day(s).

This year, each participating ground will receive one year’s free Trade Membership to the Countryside Alliance, worth £88!

If you require more information before you sign up, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks for reading this. Let’s make it a week to remember for promoting shooting!

Best wishes,

David Taylor

Director, National Shooting Week
