Kibworth boasts three air rifle ranges, with covered shooting positions; one for coaching and two for practice and zeroing. So, whatever the weather, you will be comfortable and sheltered from the elements. All you have to do is concentrate on your shooting! We also hold rifle and pistol HFT and Bench Rest competitions each month.
The staff in the Air Rifle shop provide invaluable advice on rifles, pistols, scopes, ammunition and anything else shooting related, so our customers are able to make a balanced and informed choice on their purchases.
We understand that embarking upon a new hobby, or simply wishing to ‘have a go’ may often be a challenging prospect and it is important that you find the right place to do this. We provide hour long taster lessons to give you the chance to try the sport without the need to bring anything other than yourself. Our aim is to make your visit as easy and inviting as possible and our friendly and experienced team are on hand for you to try the sport in a safe, comfortable and controlled environment and to provide the best advice on what to do next. We can also provide follow on lessons to help you develop your shooting skills.
To arrange and introduction or a lesson, please feel free to either call the shooting ground on 0116 279 6001 or alternatively fill out the form on the contact page and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
You don’t need to be a member to shoot at Kibworth, we do however provide a membership for all our shooters who wish to join. Yearly membership is from 1 January and if you intend to visit us on a regular basis, becoming a member will allow you to make great savings on your shooting costs. If, however, you only intend to shoot at the Ground occasionally, it may make more financial sense for you to book in as a visitor.
Throughout each month, the air rifle team organises several competitions for members and visitors of all ages and abilities. The second Saturday sees the HFT course in full flow with a series of over fifty targets. The third Saturday is the air pistol competition and the fourth Saturday is the Marksman competition. For a full list of dates and events, please visit the fixtures page.
When booking in for practice at Kibworth, both members and visitors are required to sign the attendance book, which is located at the desk in the Air Rifle shop, so we are aware of who is shooting. Non-members may also pay their range fee at this point. On competition days, please report to the Shop desk and we will guide you to the competition location.
Rifles must not exceed 12 ft lbs energy and pistols must not exceed 6 ft lbs.
