At E.J. Churchill we are passionate about developing shots in every stage of shooting from the complete beginner to the professionals. We are proud to take this a step further and sponsor one of Team GB’s highly successful and up and coming shots – Amber Hill.
Amber has enjoyed much shooting success in the UK and abroad representing Team GB and we are delighted to be able to share her journey and celebrate her success. Read on to find out more.
Amber started shooting when she was about 10 years old and initially got into it as she didn’t want to watch her brother play rugby every weekend and so decided to go shooting with her Grandad. At first she just wanted to give it a go but found a like for it, and it soon became clear that she was a natural. Amber began to win her local shoot at colt and junior level but soon progressed to ladies as she shot for her county and won many shoots. She has many titles to her name in all disciplines. Amber wanted to go further and at the age of 12 she got a place in the ladies England skeet team again winning many titles including British and English open skeet lady champion. Amber then decided to try out at the age of 14 to get into Olympic skeet for which she made the England and GB ladies team within a few months and within a year is now currently ranked number 1 in England and Great Britain, 4th in Europe and 6th in the world.
