Who we are
Information about the Club de Tiro Olimpico Oliva
The “Club de Tiro Olimpico Oliva” (CTO) was founded in 1982 and consists of approximately 322 members. The CTO is also one of the most successful and most important in the region.
The majority of our members are Spanish. However, we have an expanding group of around 60 international shooters consisting of German, English, French, Dutch, Belgian, etc.
The CTO is not exclusively the shooting domain of men and our ladies group is very strong and prominent in competitions.
Olympic shooting disciplines cater for all calibres in both air and conventional firearms. A wide range of calibres are used, from 4.5 mm (compressed air pistol and rifle), . 22 (small calibre pistol, revolver and rifle), .32 (sport pistol and revolver), 9mm (pistol) and.38 and .45 calibre (revolver and pistol). This gives the shooter a wide variety of calibres to choose from.
The CTO also holds and organises competitions for black powder muzzle loaders and historical weapons.
Every Saturday between 10AM to 12AM there is supervised training for compressed air pistols with qualified coaches for children aged from 12 years of age to adults.
The CTO provides individual supervised pistol training for “new shooters” or those wishing to return to the sport. Training will be provided until members are proficient, competent and can successfully obtain a Spanish weapons license.
We also cater socially for our members with social events and competitions throughout the whole year.
In shooting disciplines ,Security is of outmost priority. We follow the Rulebook of the International Sport shooting Federation, ISSF,as well as the Spanish federation and the Valencia regional Federation Rules and regulations.
