Southdown Sports Club, Cockshut Road, Lewes, BN7 3PR
Half of my working life has been spent in the hubbub of central London. However, I am very much an outside person. I am passionate about my skiing and love my animals and, as most of the members have gathered over my twenty years at the Southdown, I love the colour Pink!
I have worked at the Club for 13 years. I love the outdoors, either walking my dog or running on the beautiful downs. I am a keen mountain biker and regular at the Lotte Berk sessions at the club.
Ciao! My name is Mauro Lazzati and I am the deputy general manager at the club.
My passion is running on and off road. I have run 9 marathons and 2 ultra marathons.
I enjoy working at the South Downs Sports Club because I am surrounded by the two things I love the most; sport and people.
I have worked at the Southdown Club for 7 years and love the atmosphere at the club after a busy day of sport. I enjoy running on the South Downs and cooking for my friends and family.
I have worked 34 years at the club and have witnessed, hurricanes, fire and flood. The site has adapted to meet the needs of each generation. My passion is athletics and i am a level 3 coach. Of my many personal achievements, running a sub-3-hour marathon and coaching Rub Mullett, steeplechaser, to the Rio Olympic Games in 2016 are my greatest accomplishments.
I have been a member of the Southdown Club for 30 years and I am excited to be managing the site. Sport has been the mainstay of my life teaching me resilience, a competitive edge, teamwork and valuing others. I am passionate about the club and will work as hard as I can to meet the needs of the present membership without compromising the ability to future proof the site for the next generation.
