Kottayam Rifle Club was started in the year 1963 with the aim of cultivating the talent of shooting amongst citizens of Kottayam, specially the youth and to provide them a platform to flourish at District, National and International competition. We are also sure that this helps them to create a sense of discipline in handling firearms.
The Kottayam Rifle Club was inaugurated by Late. Lt. Col. Goda Varma Raja (GV Raja).
Our shooting range is located at Nattakom, behind Govt. Poly Technic College. We have around 400 active members currently.
Every year we are conducting the Dist. Shooting Competition, the winners of the Dist. Championship are send to State level, Pre-National and National Competitions.
