Harris first started playing in his hometown of Marbella back in 2015. A keen rugby player as a kid, Harris soon discovered a new love and passion for the sport and has since progressed all the way to the international stage.
His favourite memory of his young career so far came in Derby in 2022 as he played a pivotal role in clinching qualification to the World Padel Championships in Dubai.
He made his junior debut for Great Britain in 2017 and represented the senior team for the first time in 2019.
Away from padel, Harris enjoys going to the gym and playing other sports with his friends. His closest friends on the tour are Jorrit Notenboom, Cameron Dollimore, Sten Richters and Sam Jones.
If he wasn't a padel player, Harris would have liked to pursue a career in professional rugby.
In June, Harris once again teamed up with Jones for the LTA Padel British Tour event at Stratford Padel Club.
The all-British team battled through a strong line-up to reach the finals and set up a meeting with Spanish pair Rafael Vega and Alvaro Pecos. Here, Harris and Jones wrapped up a comprehensive 6-2, 6-4 victory to take the crown.
Moving on to the FIP Rise Eurosporting Cordenons event, Harris and Jones reached the Round of 32 before bowing out.
Harris and Jones once again joined forces at the We Are Padel event. The all-British duo enjoyed a run to the men's final where they just missed out on the title to Richard Brooks and Spain’s Mario Cerezo. Despite a tight first set featuring a 16-point tie-break, it was Brooks and Cerezo who had the edge in the second to wrap up the title 7-6(7), 6-3.
Harris teamed up with fellow Brit Sam Jones for the first event of the 2023 LTA Padel British Tour at Surge Padel in Harrogate, where they made it to the final. Here, Harris and Jones come out on top against the third seeds Alfonso Patacho and Chris Salisbury - clinching a 6-2, 6-7(0), 6-3 victory to claim the title.
