Born in Chatham, Kent, Steve Brown had a passion for sport from a young age that was heavily influenced by being raised in a family of Crystal Palace supporters. Upon attending a game, he was inspired by seeing the wealth of support and cheers that the players received and found that it was something he wanted to. Attending Borden Grammar School, he took the chance to pursue a variety of sports, representing the school and honing his skills in multiple areas such as cricket, football and cross-country. His other love was also that of the countryside, enjoying being out in nature and exploring, Steve Brown also aspired to be a wildlife presenter. His life took a sudden twist when he was 23 years old and fell from a first-floor balcony, ultimately dislocating one of his cervical vertebrae and trapping his spinal cord. As a result, he was paralysed and started rehabilitation during which he encountered the world of wheelchair rugby, an event he says was a turning point.
