As an ArcheryGB Ontarget Performance Club, also holding both the Young People and Community Specialisms we support many new members along their chosen paths and whilst the focus of this article is about outstanding success along performance pathways, our achievements are much broader than just these!
As a social, recreational and sports club we strive to support all abilities to achieve their potential regardless of what that is and to play our role in our community, improving our environment and being as inclusive as we can be.
Our family of shooting and non-shooting members, coaches, volunteers, family members, judges and sponsors all contribute at different times to our amazing story, this bulletin is just a small chapter in our Club’s amazing journey.
Let us recognise that performance achievements are ultimately down to the individual and that the support they benefit from, comes from different people at different times along that journey but in all the cases we are highlighting the journey that began and continues with the support of the Deer Park Archers family!
We are proud to see:
Ella Gibson – 1st in the World Compound Ladies Rankings
Phoebe Paterson Pine MBE – 1st in the World Compound Para Ladies Rankings
Chloe A’Bear & Grace Chappell selected for GB in the 2022 European Youth Championships
Riley Spencer-Nice part of the GB Recurve Pathway.
Ryan Faulkner and Louise Bassett selected in for the 2022 England Squad for the ArcheryGB Youth Festival.
Harriet Beckinsale-Smith, Lilly Partridge, Louise Bassett and Jemma Hollingsworth part of the National Development Programme.
Add to this a fantastic group of emerging junior archers across all disciplines and the future looks great!
However, the final word must go to all those that are achieving or working towards their full potential and to all our volunteers that support the maintenance and development of our facilities and the archery experience we offer.
