Sean Higginbotham
Community Sports & Lettings Manager

Part of The Team since 2005

"Sports and exercise has always been important to me - an ever present in my life.
Being a huge Newcastle United fan I have developed patience and a good sense of humour! Be it in the gym, a muddy assault course, game of football or a knock about on the squash court, I'll be found being active more often than not.
As a fully qualified Personal Trainer, I get a good opportunity to put my sporting knowledge into practice on a daily basis. 
Outside of the sports world I have a passion for food and enjoy creating and eating a variety of tasty (sometimes healthy) treats."

"I studied at Loughborough University before undertaking a variety of jobs, including being a Packaging Technologist within the Pharmaceutical Industry. I moved to Suffolk in 2008 and after spending years working for Haven Holidays, I have ended up here at The Venue.
I am currently working towards my Fitness Instructor Qualification and I have a mad passion for mud! I take part in as many obstacle course races as I possibly can and qualified for the OCR World Championships in 2018."

"I've been involved with leading summer sessions to general maintenance around the building and many other roles.
Outside of work I enjoy a couple of games of cricket over the weekend playing for Topcroft Cricket Club. Running, basketball and badminton are among a vast majority of sports I enjoy. 
My other passion is playing the drums, I play in a variety of bands and performances all around Suffolk and Norfolk all year round."

Part of The Team since 2010

"I have always enjoyed playing a variety of different sports, especially netball and badminton. My passion for sport led me to achieve my degree in Sport & Exercise Science. It has been great to be able to put my studies into practise during training sessions! I want to encourage others to always follow their passion and get more people to be involved in sport or physical activity. 
Aside from sport I do enjoy reading and crafty projects."
