Waveney Shooting Club
Brock Road, North Cove, Beccles Suffolk NR34 7PJ
Owing to a lack of Range Supervisors we have had to change to opening hours from 4pm to 6pm on Monday and Wednesdays. Special arrangements have been made for pistol coaching sessions and for 1 Range Supervisor who works permanent night shift.
Waveney Shooting Club is now open to about 20 more new members.
Guests can only shoot if they are introduced by a full member and then only at less busy times.
Sign the petition against the proposed ban on lead ammunition.
If lead is banned shooting is finished

Welcome to the Waveney Shooting Club Web site.We hope that these pages give you some idea of what we are about and our goals for shooting in the Waveney, Norwich and Great Yarmouth areas
Waveney Shooting Club has been in existence for around 30+ years, originally as a pistol club and under the name of Shell Shooting Club.
After the ridiculous and pointless ban on pistol firearms following the tragic Dunblane massacre, the club went through a period of stagnation , but emerged about 5 years ago, largely due to a vibrant and energetic air weapons section.
The Club Holds Home Office approval and is curently affiliated to the N.R.A and to S.C.R.A.P.S .
The membership currently consists of around 40 firearms members and 70+ air weapons members.
Opening times are:
Firearms: 19:00 to 21:30 Tuesday and Thursday evenings
Saturdays 13:30 to 16:30
Air Weapons: 18:00 to 21:00 Monday and Wednesday evenings
09:00 to 12:00 Sunday Mornings
Any shooters arriving before this time may shoot ONLY at the discretion of the range supervisors. Any shooter wishing to shoot after this time may do so only if a range supervisor can be persuaded to stay with the shooter and supervise. Range supervisors may at their discretion open earlier or close later than these times but shooters must not expect to be able to shoot as a given right. If the popularity of a shooting session wanes due to lack of interest then members should expect an unpopular session to be suspended or cancelled.
Finally, anyone shooting a recognised competion must have priority at all times but especially when the ranges are very busy and shooters MUST give way to competition shooters.
Waveney Shooting club has some of the best indoor ranges in Suffolk with electronic turning target gear and a 50 yd indoor range accomodating 3 shooters at a time.
See our Competitions page. Now updated with news of internal competitions and news of how members are doing in SCRAPS and NSRA competitions on 2015
