Matthew Ensor


  • Surrey
  • England

Matt started shooting in 1992 at the Royal Grammar School, Guildford. Various shooting successes followed in schools competitions, but it was on his Athelings tour to Canada in 1997 that he decided (having dropped his last to count... again!) that wind coaching was for him.

Matt's first senior international honours came in 2006. He gained his first GB cap on the victorious 2007 Palma tour where he coached 234 consecutive scoring bulls-eyes in the various team matches. This is his 4th GB tour, and his first to Australia. His only previous ventures south of the equator have been shooting related – he toured South Africa in 2008 and New Zealand in 2010, coaching the winning GB teams in the Protea and New Zealand matches. Even on a holiday to the Whitsundays last year, he took time to study the Belmont winds with a small party of interested others.

Matt regularly coaches for Surrey county, has also coached GB twice in the Kolapore, and has represented England 5 times in the National Match and 4 times in the Mackinnon.
