Vikki Zeila

Senior Research & Insights Manager

Earliest sporting memory: 
I was never the most co-ordinated when it came to sport – the kid that came last in sports day, the one that would hit my face rather than the ball when playing rounders and the one that would make themself physically sick when doing cross country – I liked sport, we just never really gelled as a winning combination – for me doing what I enjoyed was enough.

Favourite sporting occasion visited:
With my job I am fortunate enough to attend amazing events and venues.  But to be honest, I am happiest watching my son’s swimming lessons or watching him run in child friendly events.

Personal sporting ambition:
I don’t have any massive personal sporting ambitions – for me sport is about leisure and enjoyment. But I love helping others to be passionate about sport and providing young people with opportunities to participate. Through my charity work with my son’s school PTA, I ensure that we have a sport zone at all events and I organise our annual running squad in the County Half Marathon event. My ambition is to arrange amazing sporting activities and experiences for the children in our school to inspire them to be active.
