The Savli Taluka Rifle Association has been established with a focus on introducing and developing the Olympic sport of Trap Shooting to the discerning citizens of Vadodara.
Set on the banks of the Mahisagar river and surrounded by the lush green gardens of Misriote Farm, the STRA offers an idyllic location of peace and tranquility where one can focus clearly on achieving ones passion for success and the discovery of finer skills, yet dormant and hidden under the cloak of daily mundane routine life.
The aroma of gunpowder and the crushing of the flying clay target are some of the addictions you will develop as you get engrossed in this sport of gentlemen.
The Team at STRA is led by Ishwar Singh who is a “B” Judge of the International Shooting Sport Federation and a Coach certified by the National Rifle Association of India.
