Now open to UCD employees!

UCD Target Shooting Club is based in a Garda-authorised range on Belfield Campus (air rifle and air pistol disciplines). Club members enjoy access to training, coaching and competition using club-owned air rifles and air pistols. The club is new and hopes to generate a friendly and informal atmosphere for UCD students, postgraduates and staff. Members pay an annual fee and in return enjoy competence and safety training as well as access to the firing range, during the club's opening times.

Target shooting is one of a small number of sports that is open to all abilities. You can enjoy shooting as a recreational activity but you can also take it as challenge requiring discipline and effort with the goal of competing at club, local or international level. For most, it’s a mixture of both. While in other sports, strength, speed and agility are required, target shooting demands stability, calmness and micro-coordination. Shooting ranges are a great way to unwind and release the stress of everyday life.
