Our Team

Steven Mellor

Sports Abroad is managed by Olympic swimming finalist and Commonwealth Games medallist Steven Mellor. Steve brings a wealth of experience to the business having represented Great Britain for almost 15 years, travelling throughout the world to attend training camps and competitions.

“Launching Sports Abroad has provided me with a great opportunity to help groups organise all of their travel requirements and to take away the hassle of arranging their own training camps.

Having personally attended numerous training camps as a swimmer myself I feel that Sports Abroad can offer greater advice and expertise, ensuring that teams have all the information necessary for an enjoyable and successful training camp”.

Karen Mellor

Supporting Steve is wife Karen who has been an integral part of Sports Abroad since the beginning.

Karen started her early career in the travel sector where she honed her customer facing skills. She then took advantage of her keen eye for detail and organisational expertise by moving into co-ordinator and project management roles before joining Sports Abroad full-time in 2009.

Karen is well organised, conscientious and highly enthusiastic, especially when she travels to one of our sunny destinations!

Emily Thompson

Emily joined Sports Abroad in October 2016. She began her career in travel in 2002 where she met Steven and worked with him for a number of years before moving over to the financial industry in 2008. Both careers have been instrumental in Emily gaining client focus skills in order to get the best outcome for the customer.

Emily is hard working, committed and has high standards which are important attributes she brings with her in joining the Sports Abroad team.
