Charles Brooks (Coach)

This is Charles' fifth visit to Canada, four times with GB teams and once as an Atheling.

He has also visited the Channel Islands with the NRA team and the West Indies with GB and will be returning to the Caribbean in 2013 as vice-captain with that year's GB team. Charles is one of team's wind coaches and brings a wealth of experience gained coaching Hampshire and England teams over the years. Individually Charles has won a number of trophies at Bisley and has a good collection of HM Queens Prize and St Georges badges to show for his efforts.

Professionally Charles is a solicitor and a partner in a UK law firm. Having practised in Paris for some years he is a qualified French lawyer (Avocat à la Cour). He also is the Hon legal adviser to the British Biathlon Union - although has never set foot on a biathlon ski course. When not shooting or working Charles likes watching all sports, particularly rugby (London Irish & England), cricket and football (Manchester United) and also finds time for a little golf and game shooting.
