Sam Mason (born 1995) was a British Professional Paddle Tennis Player.

Mason began his career in the late 2000s becoming the youngest ever player to travel to a world championship. In his 3 championships, Mason reached 2 quarter finals and 1 semi final. He first found an interest to the game at the age of 15, after playing Tennis for the majority of his life he picked up Paddle Tennis at his local David Lloyd health club, playing with his friends. Within a year he found himself competing at the world championships in Hong Kong (still aged 15). Mason came face to face with paddle tennis players with 10 plus years experience, mostly from the far east and always won his group. He was considered to be Europe's brightest young talent in the sport.

Controversy[edit]

In early 2013 at the age of 18 Mason was banned from the world circuit, after failing an alcohol test on the day of his semi-final. Although admitting to a wild night out the night before, Mason still tested positive for 6 units on alcohol on the day of the match. As a result of his actions, Mason has been banned from China indefinitely.

Further scandal arose just a couple of weeks later when an online sex video of Mason and 3 females local to Hong Kong was found, Mason refused to comment on the matter, yet the video has been removed.
