From the US to Austria, Elena Tice lived in various locations around the world with her family until the age of nine, when they moved to Ireland and settled on a farm in Glenealy, Co Wicklow, where they keep horses and sheep.

It was during these formative years Elena was first introduced to cricket by her father, who is a big fan of the sport, having played in school and university himself. With two older brothers, all the family would play together at home growing up.
