Eleanor (Ellie) Jones joined the BBSA ahead of the 2019/20 season as a Travelling Physiotherapist for the British Skeleton team.

Ellie travels with the Europa Cup squad, providing physio support at race venues across the continent.

Having graduated from Coventry University with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 2015, Ellie worked within the National Health Service for three years, predominately in paediatrics. She combined her NHS career with part-time work within semi-professional and school-level sport before going on to complete a Physiotherapy studentship with the English Institute of Sport within a variety of para sports, including canoeing, wheelchair basketball and badminton.

Ellie accompanied several GB teams to various locations in the six months prior to starting her role with the BBSA, including wheelchair tennis, judo and boccia, and she works regularly in Roehampton with the junior wheelchair tennis programme as their Lead Physiotherapist.

Her career highlight to date is attending the Wheelchair Tennis World Team Cup where she supported athletes towards a gold medal in the men’s competition and a silver in the junior event.

A regular ice hockey player and a keen snowboarder and recently turned triathlete, Ellie has an Advanced Manipulative Therapy Masters Degree from the University of Birmingham and has her sights set on attending an Olympic Games in the near future.
