SSAA Wagga Wagga
The 44-hectare Big Springs Rifle Range, wholly owned by the Wagga branch of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (New South Wales) Limited, is located near Wagga Wagga in South Eastern NSW. Founded in 1991, the range is zoned rural/agricultural and is bordered by a national park and farmland. The range provides a covered 20 bench firing line catering to casual shooters, and competition shooters alike. Shotgun (5 stand), pistol (9 stand), and offhand (9 stand) ranges are also situated on the Big Springs site.
There is a dedicated group of competition shooters competing in shoots every Sunday morning and some Saturday afternoons; the rest of the time is taken up by casual plinkers, hunters and competition shooters looking for that winning edge.
As the majority of our competition shooters own hunting rifles, we structure the competitions so that hunting rifles are competitive. The emphasis on our friendly competitions is on having fun rather than winning.
There is a large solar powered and air conditioned ‘clubhouse’ complete with kitchen facilities, scoring room, men and women’s toilets with hot shower facilities. The facilities also cater for wheelchair access and have a disabled persons toilet/shower.
Rudimentary camping facilities (non-powered) are available.
A large reloading and rifle cleaning room has recently been added adjacent to the firing line.
