About our Club

Petone Rifle Club is part of the Wellington Rifle Association (WRA). The WRA is made up of the 4 local Wellington clubs: Petone Rifle Club, Upper Hutt, Onslow and Karori. The National Rifle Association of New Zealand (NRANZ) is also based at Trentham next to our club rooms. All of the clubs throughout New Zealand come under the umbrella organisation of the NRANZ

Our Clubrooms

Our club rooms are based at the Trentham Rifle Range in Upper Hutt. We have a large club room with full kitchen and bar facilities. There is an extensive photo collection that documents our members shooting over the years. Click here for map.

Club Rifles

We have rifles for new members to shoot with. Ammunition can be purchased from the club.

Social Activities

We have a number of family activities throughout the year. These may be a pot luck dinner or BBQ’s. Each year we have a Christmas party for family members and our annual prize giving.

Away Trips

The club organises trips away to other rifle ranges throughout New Zealand or members may choose to travel on their own. These away trips are always good for improving your own shooting abilities as you deal with the challenges of shooting at a different rifle range. They are also very social occasions and you meet many people from all over New Zealand.
