Thank you for your interest in the TDSA, (Taunton Deane Shooting Association). Please be aware that this is the standard reply to all prospective new members.

The club is located behind Vivary Park in the centre of Taunton. It is open on a Tuesday Evening 19.00 - 21.00 ish, and a Sunday morning 10.00 - 11.30 ish for general shooting of all classes of firearms, except fullbore.

On a Saturday afternoon 14.00-16.30 for the shooting of mainly Black Powder firearms and a Thursday evening on an ad-hoc basis for competition rifle shooting. More about our activities


Due to restrictions placed upon the club by the Home Office, a club committee member normally meets prospective members at the club to discuss what the individual is looking to get from the club, how we can help and advise on the law in relation to the holding and use of firearms and air weapons. The Home Office Guidelines also make us ensure that potential members undertake a probationary period (3 months), that they regularly attend the club and show proficiency in the safe handling and use of firearms, before they can become full members.

If you can let me know what it is you are looking to get from the club, I will advise if we can help. Sorry it is a bit vague, but we have to be cautious as our sport can be a bit controversial for some people.

Should you wish to meet me at the club, please advise me and I can let you know when I will be at the club, however I am normally there on a Tuesday and a Sunday.

If you require any additional information that is not covered above, please complete and send me the form below and I will get back to you. There may be a short delay in response so I would ask for your patience in advance.




The TDSA address is;
Ash Meadows, Mount Street, Taunton. TA1 3AR.
