Nigel Ball

 

Nigel has been around the shooting scene for several years now both as a Service Rifle shooter during his time in the Royal Navy and more recently as a Target Rifle competitor. He now uses this experience to train the next generation of marksmen and women as Shooting Master at Wellington College in Berkshire.

His first GB target rifle team was to Canada in 1991 and this will be his 11th visit to the DCRA meeting. Other tours include visits to Zimbabwe, South Africa, USA, Australia and New Zealand; there are still some countries that elude him.

Nigel has a selection of Grand Aggregate crosses, George’s Final badges and Queen’s Final badges but enjoys shooting big team matches most. He has been involved with GB Palma teams for the last 10 years and ranks them as the ultimate team shooting experience but any chance to represent his country is an honour he will readily accept.
