The club exists to encourage shooters of all ages and abilities, competitive and non-competitive, as well as promoting the safe use of air guns. The principal activity is field target shooting, as the club name implies, but a zeroing / plinking range is also available for those yet to dip their toes into the more competitive side of air gun shooting.
Abilities of club members range from virtual novices to ex world champions, so whatever your own level of ability, you will always be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.
For any of you wishing to pay us a visit you will be made more than welcome. We only ask that you check with one of the club officers (use the contact button on the navigation bar above) to ascertain when the club field will be open. This will normally be Sundays, but the field is closed occasionally during the competition season, and we wouldn’t want you to have a wasted journey.
Before shooting on the club ranges is permitted, prospective new members must first attend an induction session when the club rules and safety procedures will be explained by one of the senior members. Two further visits are required before membership is offered. Induction sessions are held on the first Sunday of each month.

If you are new to the sport, and do not have an air rifle as yet, it is, in fact, quite a good idea not to purchase a rifle until after visiting us. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within the club and help and advice is always available. Most members will be willing to let you try their guns after your induction session, and a better idea of the type of rifle that will suit you best can be gained this way, and you will avoid making what could be an expensive mistake.
Where we shoot - our FT course
The Kent Woodsmen Field Target Club is situated at Ham Street, near Ashford in the beautiful county of Kent and within easy reach of the M20 motorway. We are affiliated to the British Field Target Association and also to the National Small-bore Rifle Association.
We meet every Sunday throughout the year, only cancelling when the weather is truly awful (not often).
