Elpida Stavridou - President

Hello, my name is Elpida, and I am the 8th president of TSZWV Avalon. Ever since I was a little girl I have been involved in Waterpolo, back home, in Grecee, I was the goalie of the Greek U19 National Team. When I got to Tilburg for my education, I decided to join Avalon to continue my love for waterpolo, it clicked from day one. To me all our members are like part of the family.

Mark Akkermans – Secretary & Water Polo Commissioner

Hey, my name is Mark Akkermans and I hold two positions in the current board namely that of secretary & water polo commissioner. I am originally from the North West of The Netherlands, where I played waterpolo for 12 years. When I began my study last year, I moved to Tilburg and that's how I came across Avalon. From day one I loved it, we train hard, but we also party hard. And that's exactly what I was looking for. When I am not busy with Avalon, you will most likely find me in the city. On the terrace at Cafe Bolle or over by the wheel in the Boekanier.
