Meet the Team

Dan - Sports Tour Adviser

An avid fan of all things sport on both sides of the pond, Dan is an avid follower of football, baseball, rugby and American football. He’s also tried his hand at most sports, and still likes to keep his hand in with rugby when it rains, and baseball when it’s sunny. The new kid on the block, Dan joined us in 2015 but has soon made himself an integral part of our team. Dan’s role involves providing expert information and advice on school sports tours. You’ll tell him what it is you want from your tour and he’ll discuss with you the best ways to achieve this.

What's your favourite travel memory?
"Without a doubt it has to be watching rugby in South Africa. The entire town shut down and everyone was there, there was a real festival atmosphere. After the match, there was live music, dancers, performers and, of course, epic braais!"

Kate - Sports Tour Adviser

Kate is one of our experienced Sports Tour Advisers and knows our destinations and local suppliers extremely well, having previously worked as one of our Itinerary Coordinators. A big sports fan, Kate is also a keen traveller, who has had many memorable, thought-provoking and educational travel moments. She joined Halsbury Sport to help young people to enjoy similar memories of their own. Her substantial experience in educational and sports travel means that Kate is ideally placed to advise you on your next sports tour and ensure that your students enjoy a sporting experience that inspires them.

What do you enjoy about working in sports travel?
“I love being part of a company that provides people and groups with lasting memories and unforgettable experiences that they may not otherwise have had access to.”

Jess - Itinerary Coordinator

Once you’ve booked your school sports tour, you may very well speak to Jessica, who will work closely with you on the finer details of your itinerary. She’ll ensure that everything is in place to ensure that your tour runs smoothly. Graduating from Coventry University in 2014, Jessica has always loved playing sports and thrives on being part of a team. Amongst some of her finest sporting achievements include playing cricket for Nottinghamshire Women’s U15s and currently plays hockey for her local club, here in Nottingham. Jessica even won the small stunt competition at the British Cheerleading Awards in 2013!

Why did you choose a career in sports travel?
“I became interested in youth sports travel in the summer of 2014, when I travelled to Connecticut in the USA, to work as a Camp Councillor mentoring 16 year olds in several sporting and general life skills.”

Lisa - Itinerary Coordinator

After booking your school sports tour, you’ll speak to one of our Itinerary Coordinators – such as Lisa. A skilled linguist, Lisa speaks fluent French and German, which comes in very handy when liaising with local suppliers! Lisa loves travelling and has spent time living in both France and Germany. She’s also a big sports fan – Lisa plays hockey and is a recent convert to cycling. With a keen eye for detail, Lisa will make sure your school sports tour is meticulously planned, so that you can relax and enjoy it with your students.

Why did you want to work for Halsbury Sport?
“I wanted to help to create an amazing sports travel memory for our groups – something that they can look back on and feel inspired by. Also, planning itineraries for groups gives me some great ideas for my future trips!”
