Tom Smith started shooting in 2005 with Warwickshire ACF. He first journeyed to Connaught in 2008 on the CLIM course run by the Canadian Cadet Force. His successes there secured selection to the British Cadet Rifle Team in 2010 where he enjoyed his return visit winning the Short Range Aggregate. Bitten with the touring bug, Tom then travelled to South Africa with GB U19, followed by the NRA team to the Channel Islands in 2012 and then competed for GB U25 in the World Championships in 2015 at Camp Perry. Tom returned to South Africa in 2017 with GB U25.
Away from Bisley Tom runs his own business as a carpenter and joiner specialist. He was delighted to be travelling on his first senior tour with England and returning to Canada for the first time in nine years in 2019. Tom is very excited to be part of another England team and returning to South Africa for a 3rd time, he also can’t wait to arrive in Kenya and to experience the Kenyan ranges.
