How to Join

Who can join?:

All current TCD students can join the club. Alumni and Staff are also welcome to join but must be current members of the Sports Centre

When can I join?:

You can sign up at any stage during college semesters. We are open from 6pm - 10pm Monday to Friday.

How do I join?:

Just come to our range during our opening hours. You can get directions under the location link in our menu. Ring the doorbell and let a range officer know you want to sign up.

What do I need to join?:

First you need to fill out a membership form which will be provided to you in the range. Then you need to show us your current TCD student card or Sports Centre membership (Alumni / Staff only). Our membership fee for the year is 4 euro.

Please note that you won't be allowed to shoot for the first time until we have seen your student card.

What do I get for joining?:

DURC offers you you the chance to try this wonderful sport without having to apply for personal firearms licences and purchase your own equipment, which can be costly. We provide all of the training and equipment you will need to shoot, including ammunition, use of club rifles and access to our range on campus.

DURC caters for everyone, from absolute beginners to experienced shooters. Our capable range officers will train you in two Olympic disciplines in a safe, controlled environment.

Not only will you now have access to the range facilities, club equipment and rifles, training by our range officers and unlimited supply of tea and biscuits, you will now be a member of one of TCD's oldest and most successful sports clubs.

Ok you've convinced me, I'll sign up, but what then?

Once you become a member there's one more step you'll need to take. Stroll down to Front Arch where you'll find our weekly sign-up sheet. All you have to do is put your name down for a detail at a time that suits you. The week is split between .22 Rifle (smallbore) and Air Rifle, you're welcome to sign up for both disciplines in the same week

Now that you're booked in, drop down to the range about 15 minutes before your first detail so we can get you fitted with a shooting jacket and run you through the safety briefing. Please browse our website if you need anymore information on the type of Target Shooting we do or feel free to ask us in the range.
