The Team

We have a small friendly team of instructors so you may variously come across Roger, Diccon, Katie, Craig, Geoff, Jayde, Stephanie, Marta, Vincent or Louise (or any combination thereof!) leading your session. Heidi, Gertruud and Michelle hang out behind the scenes!

We all have a lot of experience at instructing archery and have a range of qualifications – including archery leaders courses, Archery GB Level 1, Level 2, first aid training and specialist courses in coaching the disabled. We all have enhanced CRB certificates.

Heidi has been with 2020 Archery since 2008 having learnt archery and shot with Hampstead Bowmen since around 2003.

You'll often find Heidi behind the wheel of the garish 2020 camper van that you can see around the club.. as well as camping Heidi has her 1 star kayak certificate having been submerged fully clothed in the Thames twice in March.

Roger Huggins has his Level 1 Archery GB archery coaching badge and has completed most of Level 2. He is historical archery enthusiast who has a collection of historic bows and bows from different parts of the world all of which he regularly shoots. He can sometimes be seen shooting his traditional English longbow or Mongolian horsebow but is currently practicing hard with a sighted recurve.


Roger also takes part in competitive European Long and Short Sword fighting presumably with the view of one day becoming a knight (I'm not sure sword fighting and archery are still required but maybe they'll help). Roger has a degree in computer science from Sheffield University where he was an active member of the University Archery Club. He is currently working on an archery app in his spare time.

Geoff

Geoff has been shooting with 2020 Archery since 2015. He prefers to shoot recurve freestyle and is still one annoying point away from a personal best of 550 points in a full Portsmouth scoring round. One day, he intends to get himself an English Longbow, but only when he can legitimately claim to have mastered his current Hoyt recurve bow.


When not firing arrows, Geoff is a game producer and writer. Many years ago, his education in a military boarding school meant that, as well as the benefits of the national curriculum, he learned to march and fire a gun!

Marta

Marta joined 2020 Archery in early 2016. During the week, Marta works as a QA Tester at Sega (yes, the guys who created Sonic the Hedgehog!). Marta's relationship with archery began as a hobby in her native Catalonia, Spain. Whilst studying, she worked part-time to pay for archery lessons. She normally shoots with a traditional barebow on a 68" with a recurved bow (and one day hopes to have her own).


Marta does not share her fellow-countrymen's love of football and prefers individual sports such as archery. Having taken horse-riding lessons, she's tempted to combine the two and try archery on horse-back! Aside from archery, Marta loves playing video games, is an avid movie watcher and loves cats.

Vincent is from a lovely town near Shanghai called Wuxi. After secondary school, he took a scholarship to study on the topical island of Singapore. After four season-less years, he made the rash decision of flying across the Eurasian continent to study in London, where he finds the weather surprisingly pleasant!

Gertruud joined 2020 Archery in the spring of 2016 and is one of our Office Administrators, helping our members and clients with enquiries and bookings.


When not working for 2020 Archery (or her media work), you can often find her at her local tennis club. Having tried a bit of archery, she feels she is still better at aiming the yellow tennis ball than the archery arrow!


When there is time to sit down, Gertruud designs and makes silver jewellery and now has her own hallmark.

Michelle

Michelle joined 2020 Archery in the spring of 2016 and is our HR Advisor, seeing to our staffing, training and team scheduling needs. More importantly, she makes sure we all get paid at the end of the month!


With a getting-ever-fainter Scottish accent, Michelle moved to the hustle and bustle of London before deciding to finally lay roots in the balmy climate of Bristol.


When she's not working, Michelle enjoys the outdoors, challenging herself to always find that circuitous dog walk from the car via a quaint village pub! And when it's too wet and dark to do that, she plays for her local korfball team (of which she is a Level 1 Coach) and Chairs the South West Korfball Association.
