Ian Robinson


Ian has been involved in several local clubs, including Kendal Bowmen, and Bowmen of Holme; and a Level 2 coach previously working at Northern Archery, making him the ideal person to lead the club. Needless to say, we believe he's the driving force behind the club!

Alongside organising the club and coaching archers, Ian has been an active compound archer, winning trophies in many competitions, and being Cumbria County champion on several occasions. He's even shot in the Vegas shoot!

Recently though, a shoulder injury has seen Ian move across to shooting horsebow, however he's still just as accurate with his new setup!

He's also our main point of contact for joining the club
