The sport of air pistol shooting is very popular at Wentworth. Students over the age of 12 years can begin shooting, with training being held after school in the state-of-the-art, purpose-built shooting range in the College gymnasium.
Students regularly take part in school competitions such as Auckland and National Secondary School Championships and have had considerable success in recent years. The Wentworth College Shooting Team has won the prestigious McMillan Cup on two occasions, and recently won the National Secondary Schools’ Competition. Interested students are welcome to come along for free initially, to see whether they would like to join the club, after which club joining fees would be payable. Pellets also need to be purchased. Student numbers have grown significantly in this sport over the past few years which is very pleasing. With our recent successes, we expect this to continue.
Uniform: Safety glasses at all times. Ear plugs recommended.
Training: Thursday nights from 6 to 8pm in the Wentworth Gym
