SHOOTING IS BACK!!!

Carshalton Rifle Club are pleased to announce that, as from Tuesday 12th April 2021 we will be re-opening, but under strict covid guidelines. Please scroll down for available options:


NEW MEMBERS

We are now starting to offer club inductions again. If after seeing what we have to offer, you are interested in joining our club, then please send a message via the contact page. We will contact you to invite you to attend an induction with our induction officer, where we informally go through what we have to offer in a little more detail; show you the club facilities and equipment; have a safety talk; give information on membership procedure and costs and also give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Then if you are still interested in proceeding (and we hope you are) you can take away an application form to start the ball rolling.

We are pleased to announce that for this year only we will be able to offer a reduced full membership fee of only £140. Remember, that unlike many other clubs, we do not charge any green (attendance) fee and both gun and equipment hire are also free. You only pay for targets and ammunition.

Our new card machine is now up and running, so we are now able to take credit and debit card payments. Cheques and good old fashioned cash will also be accepted. You can also pay by bank transfer (BACS) directly to our club bank account, the details of which can be found on your renewal letters that you all should have received. After transfer payment please  post to the address shown on the renewal letter so that your payment can be recorded and reconciled with our bank records. Alternatively you can take a photo and WhatsApp direct to Tony if more convenient.       IMPORTANT– if you pay by bank transfer do not forget to quote your surname and membership number as a reference number, ie Smith1234, otherwise we will not be able to identify your payment. If you are having any financial difficulties, due to furlough, loss of earnings, etc, then please contact either the club secretary or membership secretary to discuss any possible payment plans.


The CRC committee would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for it’s patience and understanding, in what, are unprecedented times.
