Hannah Porter - 

Since I was really young, I’ve been fascinated with archery, and 4 years ago I finally attended a beginners course at Coastal Archers and never looked back! I started with Recurve 4 years ago and last season was my first full season with the Longbow. As Head Veterinary Nurse of my Vet Clinic, I find it hard to fit in practice but I attend club sessions as much as I can. I am also a Level 1 coach and really enjoy introducing newbies to the sport.


This last outdoor season has been a whirlwind. My aim was to repeat my MB classification and I was lucky enough to achieve my GMB! I have also achieved Somerset Lady Longbow Champion and was the highest scoring lady longbow at the Inter-counties. This will be my first indoor season with the longbow and I am looking forward to seeing my archery friends again at competitions. I can’t thank Wales Archery enough for their support throughout my journey so far.
