Sarah Hennessy

Vice Chair / Secretary 

Sarah is the club's Secretary. She dipped her toe in the triathlon world in 2015 by joining some runs in the recently established Ladies Series, buying a bike soon after and then learning to swim. She has since completed many sprint triathlons, very slowly


Annie Vergette-Hollingworth

Inclusion and Vice-Chair

Annie has been a member of the club for two years and has taken on the inclusion role for the committee. She’s passionate about people, diversity and inclusion as much as the perfect coffee and cake stop during a Sunday social club ride!


Joe Howard


I have been a member of the club for just over 15 years in both the junior and senior guises.

I have a passion for the club and the sport in general and compete as often as I can - the type of event matters little!

In my role as treasurer I oversee the finances of the club.

I’m likely to be found cycling up a hill, somewhere in Yorkshire!


Amanda Rushton

Volunteer Coordinator

I’m not the most active club member but that doesn’t matter with this inclusive club.  The support is amazing.
I enjoy cycling and more recently walking!  Having had a knee replacement 3 years ago that put paid to any running ambitions.
With good friends I’ve made through the club I’m almost at my 1,000 boots on miles challenge for this year.

Sarah Poole


Sarah has experience of working in the welfare and wellbeing area and is the club contact for anyone with questions or issues in that area. Sarah is not a member of the WTC committee so that she can remain fully impartial however, she can request to attend a meeting to address an issue if necessary.


Andy Blanshard

Head of Coaching

It’s my job to coordinate all the sessions we arrange for the members every week and help our team of volunteer coaches to deliver a great experience. 

That involves plenty of discussion, and negotiation, with the facilities we use, and with British Triathlon. 

Supporting our coaches’ further development, and encouraging new people to get involved, is also an important element of the role.

Fancy getting involved? Being a high-performing athlete is not a requirement!

And I coach!


Karl-Eric Devaux

IT Administration & Membership

Karl-Eric got into Triathlon in 2018 when a friend invited him to the Warsaw 5i50 - he loved it!
He joined WTC in December 2019.
He swims like a stone but loves the open water swimming experience 😍
He doesn't like running 😑 ...

You are more likely to see him on his bike 😁

He looks after the membership processing for the clubs and general administration of the Website.

Communications  manager & Chair

I joined in 2017 because someone told me swimming would be good for my back, which is has been and has allowed me to continue running.

I love the friendly atmosphere of the club and got well and truly bitten by the tri bug so I’m am looking forward to getting more involved and promoting this fantastic club!

Louis Walker

Social Media

An extremely handsome man who is very humble is how I would describe myself…

I have a real passion for pushing this club forwards, showing people what we can offer them and sharing our love for triathlon.

I love cycling, running and tolerate swimming. We can’t be good at everything right?
