Tennis beginnings

He started playing tennis at the age of six in Ipswich.

As a junior, Patten represented his county on several occasions but played a number of different sports, so it wasn't until he was a bit older until he decided to pursue tennis as his passion. 

He attended the UNC Asheville where tennis became his priority and the Brit became the No.1 ranked NCAA doubles player and No.32 in singles. Patten was named an All-American in his senior year and also received the Dana Zimmerman Award for excellence in Economics.

During his Masters degree at Durham University, he was thrown into the professional scene, finding himself in a very strong team full of ex-pros and a few players heading out on the Tour. It was here that he decided he wanted to take the leap and turn pro.

Off-court

When he's not playing tennis, Patten enjoys spending time with his family and girlfriend, Ellie. 

He also loves playing padel and golf, and likes to attend the Manningtree Chess Club when he's back home. 

On Tour he likes playing a lot of chess and exploring new parts of the world with his doubles partner Julian Cash.

If he wasn't a tennis player, Patten would like to work a job related to his degree in Economics.
