New disability shooting club hits the mark

A new shooting with acoustics club is being established in Bangor which will offer a unique sporting opportunity for people who are visually impaired.

The club supported by the Sports Council for Wales and Gwynedd Council is the first of its kind in north Wales.

Marcus Politis, Gwynedd Council’s Disability Sport Wales Development Officer said:

“Our aim is to provide a range of activities within the county so that there is something on offer to suit the needs and interests of everyone. Following a popular taster session held recently, we certainly hope that the new target shooting club which will be the first of its kind in north Wales will prove a popular activity.”

The club will be launched with an open day on Saturday, 20 February (morning session from 10am – 1pm and afternoon session from 12pm – 3pm) with Paralympian, Jonathan Gribbin and Ken Nash from British Blind Sports also in attendance. The launch will be held at the shooting range located at the rear of the North Wales Society for the Blind office, 325 High Street, Bangor.
