About PARC

In the beginning…

The club was founded in the mid-1980s. It was originally located at the Territorial Army Barracks in Pontefract.
At its beginning, Pontefract Air Rifle Club (PARC) was organised and run as part of a local police initiative to instruct young people in the care and use of air guns.
We now reside in Frog Hall Quarry at Brotherton and currently have a thriving membership, thanks in no small part to our friendly, family atmosphere.
We’re a friendly club, and cater for beginners and experts alike. Whatever your level of ability, or type of gun, you will be made welcome.
