Adam is the Co-Director of Now Strike Archery and brings a diversity of skills to the company. Adam has had many varied careers including working for local authorities, working within the animal industry at zoos and within the outdoor sports industry where he delivered outdoor sports.
Adam always had a passion for history and it wasn’t until he had a chance meeting with Tom that he was able to learn how to shoot a longbow.
Adam is proud to have started Now Strike with Tom and says “Now Strike is so much more than a passion for shooting historic bows, we make people happy and help them create wonderful memories to cherish forever”
Adam concentrates on the archery side of the business, developing and delivering the outdoor activities to pass on his passion to others
Tom Mareschall is a Co-Director of Now Strike Archery, he has been making bows since the age of 9 years when he received an outdoor education from the local game keeper. Tom has had a career both within the Royal Navy where he served in the Falklands War and later in the education sector working for Ofsted.
Tom met Adam at a local history event and became friends after teaching him how to shoot a longbow and later how to craft the bows themselves. Tom has a wealth of knowledge in both wood and metal working and loves to pass this on when delivering a workshop course.
