Opened in 2019, the 100m Fullbore Outdoor Rifle Range was officially added to Sparsholt’s suite of Game and Wildlife Management Facilities. Opened by Olympic Medalist Steve Scott, this new development has been ten years in the planning, and features an imposing 11.5m high stop butt created from 30,000 tonnes of clean white chalk, moved by TJ Transport from a recent local housing development in Winchester. This is a fantastic new addition to the college and Sparsholt is the only land-based college in the UK to have a resource of this size on their campus, approved for use by the National Rifle Association.
The new range compliments the College’s well-established 25m .22 Indoor Rifle Range. Having both ranges allows students to practice and develop their skills in a variety of different conditions, whatever the weather. Our industry experts also use their key industry links to visit external shooting sites, allowing students to make vital industry connections.
