Welcome to the Marrickville Rifle Club
The Marrickville Rifle Club was formed on 12th March 1915, with its inaugural meeting held at the Marrickville Town Hall with 34 new members all attending from Sydney’s suburb of Marrickville. Later, club membership would eventually rise to 250 financial members, where the keen interest stemmed out of nationalism and patriotism for the Great War of 1914 - 1918.
Today, the Marrickville Rifle Club no longer has ties to the suburb of Marrickville (in name only), where members come from around the greater Sydney region to shoot and compete at club, district, regional and state level.
The Marrickville Rifle Club is amongst some of the oldest shooting clubs that currently meet at the Anzac Rifle Range, Malabar.
The club meets every Saturday afternoon, meeting in our club house where we then move out to the range to commence shooting at either the 300m, 500m, 600m, 700m or 800m range; shooting two stages of two sighters, with ten rounds to score.
|Marrickville Rifle Club's next range meeting commences at 12:30pm|
The sport of Target Rifle shooting offers many things to many people and is able to include a wide range of attributes such as learning mental preparedness, concentration and remaining focused while “in the zone”; along with learning to be patient and disciplined as weather conditions and other outside influences continue to change while you lie on the firing mound to get that perfect shot on target.
Target shooting is regarded as one of the safest sports in Australia and has a great social network amongst the shooting community, where advice and information is shared amongst shooters to perpetuate the collective knowledge that makes the sport all that more enjoyable as you look for your own perfection.
