Richard Clist and his Team at the Tunnel Target Sports Center, bring our sport alive! The fun atmosphere created encourages anyone of any age, gender and physical ability to have a go not only at the Olympic events, but use a wide variety of other guns that are still present in the UK. They like to encourage and nurture not only from the grassroots, but to elite level as well.
The Tunnel’s facilities were key to my London Olympic preparations. It was one of only three venues that I could train with my .22 Sport Pistol in Britain. I was always received with a warm welcome and the Team were very accommodating with my needs. My coach would meet me for 3-4day long training camps and Richard would help liaise with great local accommodation. He now has available the “Pods” on the Tunnel site, which I’m very much looking forward to staying in!
Located near Charmouth (about one hours drive from my home), I continue to train there in my “Road to Rio,” of which their support I’m very appreciative of. www.thetunnel.co.uk
I’m organising an Olympic Legacy project, designed to inspire the next generation into all sports that involve shooting. Richard, whose idea this was originally, is very kindly sponsoring the project with the full use of the Tunnel’s facilities for the weekend 16-17Feb 2013. This will be the first location of four around the South West for Shooting4England.
