    Charley O’Dell

    Charley has certainly packed in a lot since qualifying in 2013 but this wasn’t the beginning of her sporting career. 

    She spent her childhood on a trampoline, eventually representing GB at the World Championships in 2009.

    Charley has been treating in Harpenden for the last three years, particularly with athletes from all disciplines. 

    She provides pitchside and sports therapy for St Albans Hockey Club Men's 1st X1 and also treats the Elite Gymnasts at Marriotts Gymnastics Club. 

    In her spare time, Charley loves running with her dog Fletcher and teaching trampolining fitness classes!
