Get involved and get active with shooting at NTU.

Join our Shooting club

Shooting is an extremely dynamic sport, whether it be target shooting or clay pigeon, it constantly offers new opportunities to advance in skill whilst also being a good way to meet people and try an uncommon sport. Safety is the first concern of the sport, everyone is taught how to handle firearms safely. Once members are passed as safe, they will begin to gain skill in precision shooting and dynamic shooting types. We are a friendly sport who aim to ensure everyone has a safe and fun time.


NTU Shooting runs alongside with a Nottingham based shooting club called East Midlands Regional Range (EMRR). We offer regular shooting sessions and cater for those who have never shot before to students who have competed nationality in their respective countries. We shoot a variety of disciplines including:

  • Target Rifle
  • Clay pigeon
  • Gallery rifle
  • Civilian Service Rifle
  • Practical Shooting

The club currently has three teams that shoot in BUCS competitions. These teams consist of BUCS Long Range, BUCS Short range and BUCS Clay Pigeon.

Outside of BUCS, NTU Shooting competes in NRA events such as the Civilian Service Rifle Imperial matches. We compete in local events including Clay pigeon tournaments with University of Nottingham and target rifle matches against universities around the country. There are also opportunities to compete on a county level with EMRR teams.

In shooting with NTU there are many potential qualifications that you can gain. With enough training and consistency there’s potential to get qualifications to become an RCO (Range Conducting Officer), there is potential to become an instructor for Small-bore and Full-bore shooting, as well as potential courses with the CPSA and UKPSA.

NTU Shooting offers a variety of coaching methods from trained third-party instructors to trained students teaching other students. For those committed, EMRR can offer course for students to become shooting instructors under the National Small-bore Rifles Association (NSRA) and the National Rifles Association (NRA).

Our range is the East Midlands Regional Range (EMRR) based off Derby Rd near the QMC on Wednesdays (1-4 pm).

Our head coach is Andrew Cooney.

How to join

We will be hosting taster sessions.

Membership is £60 which is paid to NTU and a further £60 which is paid to EMRR. This allows you to become a member of EMRR which is an annual membership, meaning if you are still in Nottingham outside of term time, you can still shoot with EMRR. A police check will be carried out on joining East Midlands Regional Range. Memberships purchased at any point during the academic year are only valid until the end of term 3.

All kit is provided by our supplier however members are welcome to bring their own.
