Paul Kent

As one of the more senior members of the team it was a surprise to find out that a team-mate had shot for Surrey before Paul was born!

Away from the ranges Paul manages a commercial and residential property portfolio in central London. He is married to Sarah (shot in successful 1995 Palma in New Zealand whilst Paul coached one of the other targets) and they have two daughters Emily and Lucy who enjoy shopping!

Paul has toured several times with Great Britain but this is his first trip to Bloemfontein and his first tour with England and he is looking forward to shooting on the Veldt and renewing old friendships with South Africans that he has met on previously.

Although Paul has won most of the competitions at Bisley on more than one occasion the Queens Prize remains elusive to date. He holds a number of records including: 29 Queens Finals and 22 Kolapore appearances (including the highest individual score in the match 150.29 in 2012 ). 28 St Georges Finals, 25 Grand Agg crosses, 84 ‘Big 5’ appearances with 26 Mackinnon and 22 Nationals for England and he is one of only three people who have shot and coached the ‘Big 5’.
