How COVID 19 (Tier 3 Very High) restrictions operate here at Phoenix Range:

Firstly, YES! ..we are open with the following conditions in place in line with permitted licenced sporting indoor activities. These conditions are in addition to the local authority (BMBC) who ‘imposed’ further conditions upon certain businesses, in particular Sports leisure / gyms. Unlike many other venue’s gyms are permitted to have people from different households attending, but not ‘mixing’ or ‘socialising’ with the rule of 6 applying to each group or household or bubble in attendance. It’s similar with restaurants; there may be several households attending at the same time, but not ‘mixing’ or ‘socialising’ outside their bubble, and separated in their own groups with control measures in place such as social distancing rules and the wearing of face coverings.

Indoor shooting ranges, gyms and bowling alleys are venues where visitors share sporting equipment and therefore carry an increased the risk of virus transfer. However, these venues also have petitioned bays and separated stations of operation. In addition, these areas are thoroughly sanitsed between customer changeover. Therefore, by the nature of construction and layout they afford sufficient social distance from each other, and as such allows visitors from different households in these specific sports and leisure/ gym facilities to attend in line with the restrictions guidance, social distancing rules.

Therefore, after carrying out a thorough generic and specific risk assessments, taking into account all of the current guidelines and rules, customers may book and attend our Try Shooting sessions from different households, where control measures in place such as separation by 2m or where not possible, 1m plus and the rule of 6 per group throughout the facility. The wearing of face covering during your time with us is compulsory.
