Jon’s passion for target shooting started at the tender age of 11 at Aldro School on a 20 yard range in a converted greenhouse. Jon continued to enjoy the sport, learnt about fullbore shooting and ‘Bisley’ when he moved to the Royal Grammar School at Guildford. With the sport becoming more than just a hobby, he continued his shooting career at London University, subsequently making regular appearances for Surrey County.
Jon has achieved a number of notable successes over the years including winning the Grand Aggregate in 2005 and 2009, and the Queens Prize in 2006. He has also been a member of many successful teams representing England and Great Britain 59 times in ‘Big 5’ matches, and winning a Bronze medal representing England at the Commonwealth Games. This will be his 12th tour to Canada.
Back home, Jon looks after his family business interests in Surrey (handy for Bisley), including a tool hire business and property rental business and in ‘spare time’ has returned to Guildford Grammar School to help with the coaching. Jon also now has the added responsibility of looking after Ted – ‘The Underdog’!
