Bio Bits

Grotowski grew up a few minutes from Wimbledon and had aspirations of playing in the final on the stadium court. When he was 10 his family moved to Florida. He played his first beach volleyball tournament at the age of 15 and ever since has been hooked. Grotowski played indoor volleyball briefly for the University of New Haven but then started to focus on beach volleyball.

Grotowski and Gregg Weaver were the highest ranked beach team from Great Britain in the 2008 Olmypic qualifying.
