Padel beginnings

Norton started playing padel in Birmingham back in 2015 at the age of 12. Having played tennis throughout her childhood, picked up the game quickly and was selected to play for the Great Britain junior team at World Championships in Mexico - where she reached the quarter-finals.

It was after this event that she decided to pursue padel as her primary sport, beginning a journey that has taken her to British No.1. In 2021 she made her debut on the World Padel Tour and has since become the first British woman to win a match on the tour.

Favourite moments

Norton's favourite memory of her career so far was her semi-final win at the FIP RISE London Padel Open, where she and her partner came back from 1-1 and 5-2, 0-40 down on her serve to win the match in a third set tie-break.

She made her debut for Great Britain at the Junior World Championships in Mexico in 2015.

Off-court

When she's not playing padel, Norton loves spending time with her friends and family and has a passion for drawing, as well as music. She's also in the process of learning Spanish at the moment.
