James first went to South Africa with a group of friends to shoot in 2001. Since then, he has returned on four other occasions the most recent in 2006 with the Great Britain team. This will be James’ fourth England tour. He started shooting at Uppingham School in 1988 and has since represented Great Britain on numerous occasions including in the most recent Palma Match. In the last few years James has shot four of “the big five” matches and is hoping to add a Protea Match to his list. During his shooting career, he has toured across the world to countries including Canada, USA, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia and the Channel Islands. In the UK, James’ wins include the St George’s 1st Stage, the Times, the Conan Doyle, the Monday Aggregate, the Scottish Grand Agg. and Championship and coming 3rd in the Queen’s Final in 2000. James plays an active role in the NRA of the UK where he is one of the Trustees and Chairman of the Membership Committee. In his free time, he enjoys travelling (particularly to the USA where he lived for five years), shooting game, skiing and scuba diving; to afford all these trips he works at SAP as a Principal Sales Consultant.
