Rob Richardson

Captain of the Great Britain sitting volleyball team, Rob competed at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. He first joined the programme in 2005, after contacting the British Paralympic Association looking to find a suitable sport. Since then he’s earned a record 56 international caps, won two national championships, and was voted MVP in the final in 2011. Under Rob’s captaincy since 2010, the team has gone from a ranking of 56th to their current position in the world’s top ten. His sporting success is not without precedent - both of his uncles played cricket for England, his sister competed for Great Britain at dressage, and his father was a county cricketer and chairman of Coventry City FC. With such a sporting legacy to live up to, Rob counts amongst his blessings the support of his wife and family.
