Parag Patel


  • Surrey
  • England

Parag first started shooting at Epsom College and his prodigious talent was in early evidence as he won the Canadian Grand Aggregate as an Atheling in 1994. This is his 9th tour with the GB team and his 2nd to Australia, having toured previously in 2001.

Accomplished in both team and individual shooting, Parag has shot in all ‘Big 5’ matches with 39 appearances to date (including the last three Palma matches), and has won the Bisley Grand Aggregate twice – in 2001 and 2003. He also represented England at the last two Commonwealth Games winning four medals, including Gold in the Pairs in 2006, and Individual Gold in 2010.

When not on the range, Parag is a specialist surgeon, and recently spent some time in Brisbane plying his trade. He and his wife, Urvi, have two young sons, so he has little time left for golf. For the meantime, all his slicing is therefore done with a scalpel.
