Sneedhams expected re-opening...

The Governments latest pronouncements suggest that - all being well - outdoor shooting can take place from 29th March and indoor shooting from 17th May.

Assuming nothing happens in the meantime to change this, Sneedhams will re-open on Tuesday 30th March.

The booking arrangements will be as before:
Club bookings for a maximum of six people may be made not more than 14 days in advance by emailing Steve Goodwin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
As we will be into BST by then, there will initially be four sessions available per day: 9.00 - 11.00, 11.30 - 13.30, 14.00 - 16.00, 16.30 - 18.30.

We hope to increase this to five sessions per day by mid-April.

Sneedhams Closed

Given the new lockdown rules, Sneedhams is closed until further notice.

Lone shooting

The Range Management Group would like to re-state that the option for a single member on a CLUB booking to shoot at Sneedham’s Green is entirely acceptable! However, three key conditions are critical:

  1. The booking should be made by a Club Official and emailed to Steve Goodwin in the normal way.
  2. The Club Risk Assessment still needs to be complete for the individual.
  3. The individual shooter must hold personal third party indemnity insurance as NSRA club affiliation insurance precludes solo shooting.

Also, to preserve the reputation of our already beleaguered sport and although this is not written in law, travel from a Tier 3 household to the Tier 2 Sneedham’s Green range really should not be taking place.

Tier 4 and Sneedhams

On behalf of the GASRPC Range Management Group I would like to clarify the recent impact of our Sneedham’s Green range falling into Tier 4 from midnight on Wednesday 30th December.

NSRA guidance indicates that shooting is an individual sport (not a "meeting") and Government guidance advises that outdoor individual activities can continue in Tier 4. Travel guidance is also clear in permitting travel within Tier 4 for those activities. For these reasons the GA range will continue to be available, but to Tier 4 households only and under the current booking restrictions designed to ensure social distancing whilst on the firing points.

Please do not travel from Tier 2 or 3 to Tier 4. With apologies to all my fellow Tier 3 shooters.
