Cameron Norrie is recognized as a British professional tennis player. Born in South Africa, he had represented New Zealand, where he grew up, before switching nationality in May 2013.
Norrie has reached career-high rankings of world No. 8 in singles and No. 117 in doubles. He has won five ATP Tour singles titles and one doubles title.
Where did Cameron Norrie go to college and high school?
Norrie was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, to a Scottish father and a Welsh mother. At the age of 3, Cameron’s family moved to Auckland, New Zealand, where his parents still live. He represented New Zealand as a junior but moved to London at the age of 16, which is still listed as his residence, and now represents Great Britain. His high school was not revealed.
However, Norrie went to Texas Christian University (TCU), where he studied sociology on a scholarship and played collegiate tennis at TCU. He became the top-ranked male college tennis player in the United States, marking the first time that some from TCU had achieved that position. The Brit decided to turn pro only in 2017.
“I think you can’t lose anything,” he said in 2022 after reaching the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. “You’re going there, going to get a good scholarship. You get to enjoy it, work on your tennis, and get an education. Then you get the tour there waiting for you. You’re not spending too much money on the tour and taking a lot of mental scarring from losing a lot of matches.”
