TAMESIDE CHOSEN TO BE AN OFFICIAL TARGET SPRINT REGIONAL CENTRE

TAMESIDE CHOSEN TO BE AN OFFICIAL TARGET SPRINT REGIONAL CENTRE

British Shooting says they are delighted to announce that the third official Target Sprint Regional Centre in their shooting community will be in Tameside.

The driving force behind the tremendous development of the sport in the North West is in largely thanks to Doug Pepper, Target Sprint Educator and Assistant Explorer Leader at 6th Ashton Scouts.

The success of a shooting event held recently at Richmond Street Community Centre and on the East Cheshire Harriers running track, has shown there is an interest in the sport locally, and with the Scouts.

Doug said, I am really pleased that all the work to promote Target Sprint in the North West has resulted in Ashton becoming a Regional Centre. This sport has the skills of shooting and the fitness of running combined into one sport of skill and fitness, in the Target Sprint Squad.
