Stephen Penrose

 

This will be Stephen’s fourth shooting tour to Canada. The first trip was as an Atheling in 1976 along with team mate Nick Tremlett. Having then not made it back to Canada for 26 years this will be his third trip in just eleven years. Stephen first started shooting at Rugby School – the home of Rugby Football. He then went to Cambridge University where he managed to change course enough times to ensure he got in plenty of practise. This will be his tenth international tour with either a GB or England team. Over the years he has shot in all the major team competitions and has had the odd spot of luck in individual competitions as well – winning the SA State President’s prize at the 1999 Palma.

Stephen is a veterinary surgeon by profession and is a partner in a small-animal practice in Colchester. He is a keen skier and enjoys travelling with his wife Kate and their three children (sorry – young adults!).
