Hi! I’m Eleanor, your field captain for this year. I started archery at my local club the summer before I started here at Warwick and have been shooting for three years, at the time of writing, since.

It’s my job to help run our beginner’s course. I am also involved in the team selection for all the competitions which we attend. When at session I am in charge of range safety this means enforcing the whistle commands as well as general risk assessments.

Aside from my exec role I’m now a fourth year biomedical sciences student. Outside of the club enjoy swimming and *cough* skiing. If there’s anything you’d like to ask don’t hesitate to come and find me at any session, at one of our socials or via email at field-captain@uwac.co.uk.



Team Captain

Sherman Ip, Team Captain

Sherman Ip

My name is Sherman and I am a postgraduate statistics student. Previously I have captained and shot for University of London AC in 2010-15 and University of Oxford CoA in 2015-16. My best performances were medal positions in national events such as BUCS Indoors and BUTC in 2016 and 17.

My role as captain is to supplement regular shooting sessions with coaching, fitness, S&C, psychology and master class sessions. My aim is to give the opportunity to both experienced and novice archers to improve their performance and achieve their goals. A number of archers regularly medal at national events such as BUCS.

Should you have any questions, please drop me an email.

Hi, I’m Sam! I’m a second year Physicist and am also your Tournaments Secretary for this year. I started archery in my first year.

My role involves organising and running any competitions we host. These include the Warwick Open Novice Tournament (WONT) and the Warwick leg of the regional BUTTS league. In addition to this I also organise the annual club tour in Easter.

If you have any questions, feel free to speak to me at session or drop me an email at tournaments@uwac.co.uk.



Records Officer

Alexander Logan, Records Officer

Alexander Logan

Hello! I'm Alex, a second year computer scientist and third year archer with UWAC, and I will be your Records Officer for this year!

The majority of my role involves keeping track of all the scores our archers shoot, calculating handicaps, and organising scoring at our competitions. This year I'll also be developing a sophisticated records system which will hopefully make it easier than ever to track your own scores and see how you're improving!

A bow is sometimes not the only thing I shoot with at the club - along with David I also regularly take photos at our events and competitions to use for our news articles, and have even helped organising live streaming of events in the past.

If you need any information about scores, how the handicap and classification systems work, details of rounds you can shoot, (or really most things to do with archery which involve numbers) either come and find me at a session or send me an email at records@uwac.co.uk and I will be happy to help.



Equipments Officer

Sam Curtis, Equipments Officer

Sam Curtis

Hello everyone, my name is Sam and I’m a 3rd year Discrete Maths student. I’ve been doing archery in some form since I was about ten years old. This year I will be your Equipment officer.

As the Equipment Officer my job is essentially to fix anything anyone breaks (and to buy the wrong size fletching). I’m also in charge of purchasing new club equipment and maintaining what we already have, which is just an endless cycle of fixing broken arrows.

So if you ever find yourself with something broken or a question come find me at session or email me at equipments@uwac.co.uk.



Social Secretary

Hi, my name is Daniel and this year I am your social secretary and equal oppourtunities officer and welfare officer. I am in my second year of archery and am studying Computer Science.

I wanted to take up archery from before university and since joining have felt welcomed into the family of UWAC.

As social secretary it is my job to organise lots of club socials and to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves at every one. These range from very relaxed socials such archetea to more proactive socials such as coffee crawls and pop.

I may seem grumpy and miserable but am always up for a chat. If you ever feel like you want to talk to anyone about anything please don't be afraid to just have a chat.

If there are any ideas for socials or any issues you want to talk to someone about please don't be afraid to ask me at session or drop me an email at socials@uwac.co.uk.
