The Range itself is a 100 Yard enclosed area based near the A610 off junction 26 of the M1 and within sight of IKEA. The facilities include a clubhouse with electric heating, tea/coffee facility, covered firing point, equipment store and target store and of course our 100Mtr range..
Use these maps to find us, but all you need to do is travel on the A610 between Nottingham M1 J26 to Eastwood, Langley Mill and Heanor, past the IKEA exit, and take the 1st left then the 1st right into the grounds (the gate may be closed but unlocked). If you get to the Sewage Works then you missed the right turn, if you end up at a railway line or canal then you took the 2nd right.
When you get into the grounds, drive past the radio controlled car circuits, past the Football Club and our car park is at the end.
The club is licenced only for legal limit air rifles and pistols, Spring, Pre-Charged and Co2
We shoot up to 100yds to paper, metal or reactive targets.
We have access to a large area of land, and can make a range of several hundred metres.
Crossbows can be used on the range shooting to approved Boss's only
The gate to the club grounds is a shared gate, and we have a limited number of keys for that gate. We have found that keeping membership to around 25 members works best for the club.
We have a large range, over 100yds, with 8 firing points available for sitting, kneeling, standing or prone, air rifle or pistol, UK legal power. We are NOT FAC rated, and have lots of static target points, knockover targets, reactive targets etc.
We share our grounds and access with other sports clubs, and due to safety we cannot shoot when the sports grounds are in use, so unfortunately Sunday shooting is out, but we can shoot Monday dawn till dusk, Tuesday to Friday 09:00-15:00, Saturday 12:00 noon to Dusk.
It is hoped to add fencing to enable us to shoot 7 days, this is a costly excersise but we hope to do this.
Membership subs are just £65 a year for adults – we do require a deposit for the gate key of £40 however. We cannot replace the keys, so each key that isn’t returned deprives someone else of membership – this is why there is a deposit.
You must provide your own shooting insurance, there are several companies that can provide this for you, BASC, BASA, GunStar etc. We cannot accept you as a member unless you can provide proof of insurance.
There are no other fees, but… you will be expected to pitch in and help out as much as you can with range maintenance etc.
Ok, So how do I join?
It’s complicated, but it’s worth it…
Next step is to apply to join the groups page on Facebook, search for Tinsley Park Shooting Club or click here (https://www.facebook.com/groups/TinsleyParkShootingClub) and once approved you can introducing yourself. If you ask about a convenient time to come up and visit the club, it won’t be long before someone offers to arrange to meet you and show you round.
Download the membership application form above, fill it in, bring your proof of insurance and then come along on a Monday to join us.
The range is open each Monday dawn-dusk, further week-days are open to full members & key holders from 09:00-15:00 when the other sports facilities are not in use. We are hoping when funds allow to fully fence off the range, allowing safe and uninterupted use of the range.
