The Old Victorians' Rifle Association is headquartered at the Rifle Range on College Field and is headed up by the Hon. Secretary, David Le Quesne (OV).

The OVRA competes annually at Bisley, in the 'Angora Trophy' and the 'Donegal Badge' which is shot concurrently with the 'JRA Island Championship'. Additionally the OVRA competes in the 'Victoria College Cup' which pits the shooting skills of Old Victorians against current Victorians.

Small-bore match between the OVRC and the old enemy, Old Elizabethans, was established in 2013. The cards are to be fired before the end of April and, after marking, the result will be announced at the Imperial at Bisley.

Any Old Victorians who would like to become members of the OVRA should in the first instance contact the Old Victorian's shooting representative, Alex Langley; alex.langley@gt-ci.com

After two weeks of tough competition during the Imperial Meeting at Bisley, OV shooters returned home with some very creditable performances.  David Le Quesne finished 40th out of 809 in the Grand Aggregate and 3rd in the Monday Aggregate.  Daniel Richardson finished 11th and Bruce Horwood 25th out of a starting 1000 entries in the Queen's Prize Final.  Elsewhere, the CI Championship was won by David Le Quesne.
