SSAA Newcastle Seaham Range Booking Information

Please read all the information and then tick the box (at the bottom of the page) to confirm you understand and agree to the booking conditions and rules of SSAA Newcastle.

Session start time is the beginning of your “shooting time”. Ensure you arrive to allow sufficient time to have all your targets up before the session start time. 

  • SSAA Newcastle Seaham range will be reopening to SSAA Newcastle members only.

    The health and safety of Range Officers and members attending Seaham range is of the utmost importance. An online booking system has been introduced as just one of the measures to assist SSAA Newcastle to reopen the Seaham range following the recent closure due to COVID-19.

    A booking is now required to shoot at SSAA Newcastle Seaham range. Making a booking is quick and easy and will guarantee you a spot on the range and also ensures that we can provide a safe and clean environment in line with all relevant government requirements around crowd gatherings and social distancing.

    The Committee will continue to monitor the developing situation with regards COVID-19 and update its processes as required to ensure the health and safety of Range staff and members.

    Note that there will be no competitions until further notice and that the range is only able to open around availability of the volunteer Range Officers.

    We look forward to welcoming you back to the range soon!
