Father is called David (who is Scottish) and mother is called Helen (who is Welsh). Both were born in Great Britain and played squash to university level before moving to New Zealand. His sister is called Bronwen.
He grew up in New Zealand and began playing tennis in his driveway at age six, after his mum introduced him to the sport.
Norrie was born in South Africa to a Scottish father, David, and a Welsh mother, Helen, who were both microbiologists.
Three years later, following a burglary, the family moved to New Zealand, where Norrie played tennis, squash, rugby, football, and cricket, finally concentrating on tennis at fifteen.
Norrie represented New Zealand as a junior, becoming No. 10 in the world, but received only a few thousand dollars from Tennis NZ, so his parents had to finance his overseas travel. At fifteen, he toured Europe for five months.
Norrie switched his allegiance at 16 to Great Britain, the nationality of both his parents, partly due to available funding, spending three years in London by himself.
He lived and trained at the National Tennis Centre, later residing with a host family for two years while he continued his training.
In 2013, he competed in all the Junior Grand Slams; the Australian Open for New Zealand, then for Great Britain at the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, but only won one match, in Australia.
Norrie had difficulty on the European tennis circuit, so he considered training at American universities.
Norrie studied sociology on a scholarship at Texas Christian University (TCU) and joined the Horned Frogs university team, where he became the top-ranked male college tennis player in the US, being the first time that TCU had such an honour.
In addition, Norrie was All-American three times.
In the 2016–17 season, Norrie was the only player to win every Big 12 match he participated in, with a 10-0 record in singles and doubles.
