Rajsekar Pandian on Student Programme of Chennai Rifle Club
By Rinku Gupta
Interest shown by youngsters in Shooting as a sport, has considerably increased after the Chennai Rifle Club's exceptional performance at the recently concluded 46th State Shooting Championship Competition.
The performance of actor Ajith kumar who represented the club and won six medals in various category of pistol matches has further drawn attention to the club's activities via social media.
Student members of the club too came up with outstanding performances breaking previous records.
Ace film producer and Honorary Secretary of the club, Rajsekar Pandian, reveals that this programme is a boon to the students of Chennai, who have an avid interest to learn the shooting sport and excel but did not have access to it. The idea behind the Students Programme is to break the notion that this sport is not available to general public. This programme aims to make the sport accessible and viable for the students of Chennai city.
The Chennai Rifle Club, situated in the Old Commissionerate compound Egmore, has been successfully conducting students training programmes. The club functions under the stewardship of the Commissioner of Police, Thiru. Mahesh Kumar Agarwal IPS, who’s the President of the club, and Vice President Thiru. Amalraj IPS, Addl. Commissioner of Police.
According to the Honorary Joint secretary, M.Gopinath, the student membership is available on pre-booking basis and general category membership is also open at the club for residents of Chennai.
Now the South Zone Shooting Championship Competitions in Rifle and Pistol events are being held at the Tamilnadu Special Police, Battalion-3 shooting range at Veerapuram from 9.3.2021 till 13.3.2021.
