David Norrie and Helen Norrie are the news because they’re the parents of the British pro tennis player Cameron Norrie who studied sociology on a sports scholarship at Texas Christian University (TCU) and joined the Horned Frogs university team, where he became the top-ranked male college tennis player in the US, being the first time that TCU had such an honor. In addition, Norrie was ranked All-American three times.
Meet Cameron Norrie’s parents, David Norrie & Helen Norrie.
Norrie is the son of his parents, his father is David Norrie, and his mother is Helen Norrie. They gave birth to him on August 23, 1995, in Johannesburg, South Africa. Both of his parents are microbiologists from the United Kingdom.
His father, David, comes from Glasgow, and his mother, Helen, is from Cardiff. The duo moved to South Africa after their marriage to undertake a work opportunity. In 2003, their family was forced to move to Auckland, New Zealand, after experiencing a horrific burglary at their house in South Africa.
Norrie was just three years old at the time, actively participated in sports, and developed an interest in tennis as a young boy. He joined a local coaching center in Auckland and began his tennis journey, completing his education side-by-side. Norrie moved back to London in 2011, at the age of 16, before traveling to Fort Worth, United States, to complete his education at Texas Christian University.
