Eleanor Heywood-Bourne

Class of 2017

The club will forever be indebted to Eleanor for the sheer amount that she contributed to Saints Water Polo. She joined the team in 2013 as a complete beginner and was literally thrown into the deep end, playing many Premier League matches without a single sub. Without her and fellow alum Katharyn Church, the team would not have been able to keep going that season and become nearly as successful as it is today. Eleanor picked up the game extremley quickly, becoming a Centre Forward in her second year. She became heavily involved in the running of the club, serving as Publicity Rep, Treasurer and President. Eleanor was such a calm, reliable and kind presence on the team, helping new players settle in and becoming a friend and role model to so many players. She is now living in Reading and working for the Dash Charity,  helping indiviudals and families affected by domestic abuse.
