 The Roding is an old, established but rapidly-growing club with, currently, 119 members. It was formed in the early 1970s when it ran under the stewardship of Janet and Terry Rayment. Janet Rayment was formerly a member of the England  pistol team.

The range, along with the adjacent hall, was built in the early 1930s by a local businessman and philanthropist who was also the Colonel in Chief of the local T.A.

The clubhouse is comfortably furnished and was recently re-decorated. We have a number of female members and ladies are Lorraine01 always welcome. The clubhouse is a very relaxed place where members can sit and enjoy a chat. Refreshments are always available.
The range has five shooting points with returning target holders. It is fitted with a wooden floor, soundproofing and an efficient extraction system.

 The shooting disciplines we offer are: 10m and 20m air weapons, 20m .22 gallery rifle, 25 yard prone .22 rifle. We also have facilities to shoot up to .38 calibre, both rifle and long barrelled revolver. There is a strong interest in muzzle loading  firearms and we have an advancing, turning target available.

We have a range of firearms for the use of members including air rifles and pistols, gallery rifles, under lever rifles in both .22 and .38 as well as a .36 black powder revolver .

In addition we own larger calibre weapons which members may use at Bisley and other suitable ranges (providing an appropriate committee member is present to transport the firearms.) These include 7.62 rifles and a Hawken .451 muzzle loading rifle.

The Roding has strong links to the Vintage Arms Association (VAA). Several Roding members are also members of this association. We shoot once month at the MOD range in Barton Road near Cambridge. All Roding members are welcome as guests and have the opportunity to shoot a variety of full bore rifles both ancient and modern.
