Who's who

The Club is managed on behalf of the members by a management committee elected each year at the Club's AGM. We also have a number of level 1 coaches trained to Archery GB standards. 

Details of members of the committee (8 posts) and coaching team (4) are below:

Committee

President - David Short

Warlingham Archery Club Surrey CR6 9PB President



Dave has been with the Club since 1977, starting as a junior archer.








Secretary - Keith Barrett

Warlingham Archery Club Surrey CR6 9PB Secretary


Keith is the primary contact for anyone joining the Club or enrolling on beginners' courses.  He is responsible for most internal and external communications as well as keeping minutes of Committee meetings and AGMs.

Keith has been a member for over 30 years, shoots recurve, and describes himself as a keen Club archer.  Over the years he has fulfilled several of the other Committee posts and has been Secretary since our move to Warlingham Park School in 1996.

In more recent times he has acquired another "string to his bow" being caterer to the annual Surrey Clout tournament held at the Club.




Club Captain - Dave Richardson

Warlingham Archery Club Surrey CR6 9PB Captain


Dave started archery in 2008 and changed to compound after 18 months. Occasionally dabbles with traditional wooden bows as well. 

Qualified as a Level 1 coach in 2013.

Dave became our Club Captain in June 2015



Treasurer - Paul Gardner

Warlingham Archery Club Surrey CR6 9PB Treasurer


You will invariably see Paul with his little book and moneybag collecting the shooting fees at the field. 

He keeps track of all income and expenditure incurred by the Club to ensure our finances remain healthy and, with Andy, ensures the Club's tax affairs are in order. He is also maintaining the Club’s website.

Paul has been with the club since 2001 and currently shoots longbow (summer) and recurve (winter). 

Has been Treasurer since 2009. Qualified as a Level 1 coach in 2017.


Records Officer - Andy Welling

Warlingham Archery Club Surrey CR6 9PB Records Officer


When you arrive at the field you will normally see Andy under the porch of the school assembly hall. After you’ve told him what round you want to shoot he lets the field party know where targets need to go and prepares the score sheets for the Field Captain to announce at assembly who is shooting on what target.

He will also record the members’ scores, if they submit score sheets, and calculate their classifications and handicap using the Club's software package. This also provides the information for the twice yearly awards of the many Club trophies and medals to recognise members progress and achievements at all levels. Individual performance reports are also available on request.

Andy administers our National and County winter competition entries and, together with Paul, he also makes sure the Club's tax affairs are looked after effectively.

Andy has been with the Club since 2000 and has shot recurve, longbow and compound bows.

Has been Records Officer since 2002
