About the Club

Shooters frequenting the beautiful York Peninsula in South Australia may wish to take their firearms along and visit the SSAA Moonta Club, which is situated just five kilometers from Moonta on the Moonta to Arthurton Road.

The club has three ranges, a clubhouse, toilets and a camping area. The main range is 200m and both the pistol and rimfire/silhouette/3P range are 100m. Among the 60 members, which include eight women and 15 juniors, air rifle and rimfire silhouette have proved to be most popular.

The club held its first annual general meeting in 1980 and only began with six members. The first president was Ken Warren. The current president is Tony Andrews.
A major focus of the club is introducing young people to the sport and fostering their skills. Groups from TAFE and local schools regularly take part in safety training days at the club. There are four air rifles and two rimfire rifles available for visitors wishing to try their hand at the sport. Junior members are important and are given any assistance possible.

Two of the Moonta members have proved to be top shots: Brenton Pollard and Brian Trenwith. As both a junior and senior, Brenton represented Australia in New Zealand, Germany and the USA. He was a reserve for the Sydney Olympics and served as a test shooter during the events. Brian is a masters grade shooter and was the four-gun winner in 1996 at the national field rifle and 3P championships. He has also represented Australian in trans-Tasman matches.
