The lrc wLord Roberts Centre is the headquarters of the NSRA, housing the Association's offices and showroom, as well as the .22 and airgun ranges that were built to full international specification for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.  The complex includes a cafe, gymnasium and swimming pool, and accommodates groups from a number of other sports. 

Activities

The centre is the venue for the NSRA's National Airgun Championships in February, which is entered by a large number of disabled shooters.  In October the Scouts occupy the entire complex for their National Championships, which include several disabled young people.  It is also the base for the Centurion Target Sports Club, which has several leading disabled shooters as members.  The facilities are used as a training centre by some members of the Great Britain Paralympic Squad.
Disability support charities have enjoyed the excellent facilities on "taster days", which have resulted in several people with disabilities joining local shooting clubs.
