Limassol Shooting Club

The shooting club of Limassol was founded in 1966 by a few hunters lead by the late Dr. Solon Solomonides.

In the first few years these pioneers loaded 2 to 3 traps, clay targets and cartridges on their cars every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon and set a temporary shooting ground in the fields around Limassol.

In 1974 a new permanent shooting range was erected. It had one TRAP one SKEET and one Sporting FITASC layout. Soon this range proved to be too small to satisfy the needs of the large number of shooters that wished to "break targets". In this range in 1987 the first International shooting competition, the CYPRUS GRAND PRIX was held.

In 1993 a research around the town of Limassol started in order to find a suitable piece of land to be used for erecting a new shooting range that will offer all shooting disciplines. After a long search a piece of land situated just North of Armenochori village was found, and it was aquired with the help of the Cyprus Sports Organization.

The new Limassol international shooting range was completed in 1999 and has 3 SKEET ranges, 3 TRAP/DOUBLE TRAP ranges, 5 Sporting FITASC layouts, 4 Compak layouts,14 station Air Gun and Air pistol hall, hunting airgun and a Club House.

The Shooting Club of Limassol is one of the six founder members of the Cyprus Shooting Sport Federation (CSSF).
