The Teesdale Gun Club recently extended their club house with kitchen facilities for light beverages and refreshments along with an office/reception area.
There are 2 TV monitors either end of the clubhouse where scores can be viewed for all fixtures and events and viewing power point presentations during training courses. Certificates of qualifications for Safety officers and maintenance are on view for all to see. The club house is heated by a sustainable wood chip burning stove.
The TGC had assistance with building the new extension with funding from Sport England.
Teesdale Gun Club are probably the first clay target shooting club in the country to be carbon neutral!
The club are not connected to the national grid for electricity supply, it was wholly dependent on the generation of electric from an ageing 4 cylinder diesel driven electric generator. With assistance from BEEP & TAP, the club replaced this generator with a state of the art solar panel power generating system complete with storage batteries that offers the club with all electrical supply throughout the year without the need of the diesel driven generator.
In 2022, the club was short listed for the Sports & Recreational Allience "Go Greener" award.

Club House & Facilities FAQs
There is toilet facilities for both male and female with disable access, all conforming to the disability regulations for access and egress.
The Air Rifle Range is available for use whenever Teesdale Gun Club is open for Clay Target shooting.
There is ample car parking on site, most of which is manicured grassed areas, however the Teesdale Gun Club is fully committed to re-investing in the ground infrastructure.
We have recently upgraded part of this grassed area with Eco-Decking to prevent cars getting stuck in wet weather conditions.
