Harriet Beckinsale-Smith:

Hi, I’m Harriet Beckinsale-Smith and I’m 13 years old I first started shooting when I was 7 at an after-school club at my primary school. I then went on to do a beginner’s course at my club Deer Park.


I did barebow for 2 years but didn’t really get on with it, so one of the coaches suggested I go to compound to see what it’s like and haven’t thought about moving back since! So far, I have been selected to shoot for my county, Gloucestershire, been 1st at JNOC for u12 and 3rd at JNOC for u14s, and considering my age I was able to get into the GB compound development squad this year which I was very proud of myself.


Thankyou Wales Archery and my coaches for the amazing support I’m getting to enable me to go further!
