Welcome to the WRPC site....
Workington is located on the little visited west coast of the lake district in the north of England. Workington is an historic port. At one time it was the third largest port in the UK. It was a centre for heavy industry based round the locally available minerals. Today these traditional industries are giving way to other modern industries.
The Workington Rifle and Pistol Club is located within the boundaries of the town. The club is affiliated to the NSRA and is a member of the local Cumbria and Northumbria Target Shooting Association.
We have a varied membership from the very young to the not so young. Currently we have a very strong and enthusiastic junior section. We shoot several evenings a week with sections for air pistol, sporting rifle and .22 target rifle.
If you are living in the area and are interesting in trying shooting, or perhaps you are a more experienced shot and have just moved to the area, we will be glad to hear from you.
Well welcome and we hope you find the links and information usful,
Well feel free to look around & most of the up to date club information will be posted on the forum
But most of all hope you enjoy fun safe shooting
