Meet the Sport Lived Team: Bethan Zeidler

• Posted in Australia / Gap Year / New Zealand / South Africa • By Florence Morton

Bethan Zeidler - Sales Team Aficionado and Marketing Guru


Bethan joined Sport Lived back in November 2015 as part of the Sales team. When she joined us she was a full time kayaker, alongside manning the Sport Lived phones, and chatting to all of our lovely customers. In May this year Bethan joined the Sport Lived team full time, and now balances talking to customers with working on our content marketing. Passionate about sport, travel, and helping customers choose the trip of a lifetime, Bethan is well placed to answer any queries you might have, as well as making sure everything we send out looks beautiful.


Here she answers a few of our questions…


What’s your favourite sport?



What’s your favourite country to visit?

It’s a toss up between Greece and Vietnam. I love Greece as a summer vacation place to sun myself, but when I was 18 I had a gap year myself and loved Asia. I only spent a few weeks in Vietnam so would love to go back and travel around it properly!


Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do at Sport Lived:

Well firstly I love sport, especially netball. I have played my whole life and apart from the previous 2 years (when I was kayaking full time) it has been my main sport. My role at Sport Lived is two fold. In the evenings I chat to all our lovely customers about the fab programmes we offer and in the day I handle the content marketing for Sport Lived.


Which Sport Lived programme would you most like to go on?

I think I would have to head to Melbourne for the Full Season to play netball.


Any tips for making the most of a Gap Year?

Take every opportunity that comes your way, and don’t be afraid to try something new. On my gap year I did a sky dive in New Zealand, which I would never have done in the UK.


If you were marooned on a desert island, what two things would you need to have with you?

An Ipod and Sun cream 


What is your favourite food?

My Grandma’s macaroni cheese, with bread and HP sauce! YUMMY
