Padel beginnings

Jones first started playing padel at the age of 14 at David Lloyd Chigwell and often used to play as a warm-up for tennis as a junior.

An avid sports fan throughout his life, Jones has always enjoyed racket sports and instantly fell in love with padel and competing with his friends.

Favourite moments

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

Recently, Jones and Murphy also joined forces to clinch an all-important win against Germany to qualify for the 2022 World Padel Championships.

Jones made his debut for Great Britain at the Junior World Padel Championships in 2015.


The young Brit enjoys shopping, going out for dinner and travelling to new countries. When he's on tour, he likes hanging out with his teammates and is good friends with fellow Brits Nikhil Mohindra and Louie Harris.

If he wasn't a padel player, Jones's dream would have been to become a footballer.
