Lewis Ludlam’s parents, Arron and Dorinda Ludlam are no longer together but have a strong family bond. The English rugby player comes from a family with a culturally rich background.
Since he was a kid, Lewis Ludlam spent a lot of his time at the gym. He saw his dad train, and Arron was the catalyst for his son being a professional athlete.
Despite his parent’s divorce, Lewis has been able to maintain a healthy relationship, not with only them but with his father’s current partner as well. The rugby player also shares a tight-knit relationship with his three sisters.
Currently, with his teammates, Ludlam is representing his country in the ongoing Rugby World Cup. He started for England in the game against Japan, which the team won 34-12.
Lewis Ludlam Parents Arron, And Dorinda Ludlam
Lewis Ludlam’s parents, Arron and Dorinda Ludlam, come from mixed ethnicity. Arron has Palestinian and Egyptian heritage, and his mother has Guyanese heritage.
Arron Ludlam graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with an MSc in IT and Management in 2005. He worked at All3Pints Limited as a Managing Director and later joined BT Group.
At BT, Arron took the role of Senior Deal Architect, and in his 19 years there, he rose through the ranks. Before he left BT Group in 2022, Arron was the Programme Manager and Tribe Lead.
He currently works for Sky as a Programme Manager. But don’t be fooled into thinking that Arron didn’t have time for sports due to corporate jobs.
In his heyday, Arron was a keen boxer and would take his son to boxing events to see him fight. Arron fought in white-collar events in old nightclubs.
In an interview, Lewis said it was weird to watch his dad get punched by another man, but the feeling after seeing him win would be something else.
Ludlam said his dad’s boxing bout taught him not to give up in life or on the field. Lewis explained that his father was an emotional player.
During his interview with The Times, Lewis recalled an incident when he was nine. His dad told him, “If your old nan was on the ground and you had to trample all over her to win the ball, you have to do it.”
Lewis’ mom, Dorinda Ludlam, has been working for Willis Towers Watson as an Assistant Technical Manager for the past thirty years. Dorinda and Arron have gone their separate ways, but Lewis has a strong bond with both of his parents.
Arron has married a woman named Jo Ludlam, and he has shared a few family pictures with her on his Facebook handle.
