Carl Harding had his professional life rooted in the British armed forces. After being injured on duty he was medically discharged in 2000 and is confined to a wheelchair as a paraplegic.

In 2011 he took up recurve archery after his son suggested it was something he could do as father and son.  His son moved on to other things whilst Carl changed to a compound bow in 2014.  This coincided with the first Invictus Games held in London.  He was able to get some coaching and went on to be part of the Gold medal winning compound archery team.  This lead on to getting a place on the Archery GB Performance Paracademy.

He was selected for the 2016 Invictus Games team but gave up his place in order to concentrate on training for the Rio Paralympics.  Due to injury he didn’t make the team for Rio.  In 2017 Carl shot for GB in Dubai and then in Sardinia.  He was selected for the British Armed Forces Team to compete in the Warrior Games in Chicago where he won an individual compound bronze medal.

He now aspires to compete in the future  Invictus and Warrior.  Carl assumed the role as Club Chairman in 2017 and hopes to lay some plans for the future development and improvement of the club.
