Padel beginnings

Murphy started playing padel at a court in his local housing community when he was 14-years-old, having grown up as a keen tennis player.

He fell in love with the speed and excitement of the game, as well as competing together with a partner.

As he started to progress and improve, Murphy decided to go professional to improve his ranking and to make a career playing the sport he loves.

Favourite moments

Murphy's favourite memory on tour was playing at the FIP Premier event in Rome, where he and fellow Brit Sam Jones reached the second round.

He made his debut for Great Britain at the Junior World Championships in Mexico 2015.

Off-court

When he's not playing padel, Murphy enjoys watching other sports, listening to music and spending time with his friends and family.

Murphy is also a keen Triathlete and won silver in his first ever event. He has also recently completed a University degree in Sports Science.
