Indoor Range Project

The Vision

With Paringa's  move from St Leonards to Trevallyn Reserve in the 80's, the then members developed a Master Development Plan that included a Club house, Target range, Field course and Indoor range. Today our members  are working to complete that plan, with an all weather Indoor range that will cater for community Come and Try sessions, public groups (schools, NFPs, corporate) and tournaments.

Proposed Indoor Range

Community Involvement

Over the 2013 to 2016 years Paringa catered for over 8,000 people with Come and Try sessions, groups and external events (Deloraine Craft Fair/Show, Camp Quality). Paringa also hosted 491 Archery Australia members in 26 World Archery registered tournaments. Paringa is an active club with members volunteering over 2,400 hours of their time each year, a proud 56 year history in Northern Tasmania and has also nurtured one of Tasmanias few World Champions, Clint Freeman - 2003 World Target Champion.
