Biography

Tejparkash Singh Brar was a graduate of Nairobi’s prestigious Duke of Gloucester School and soon demonstrated his talents in field hockey. He made his international debut for Kenya at the 1956 Summer Olympics, where he played in all three of the nation’s matches and failed to advance beyond the preliminary round, after tying two matches and losing one. He was also a member of Kenya’s more successful 1964 Olympic effort, where the nation won three, tied one, and lost two of its opening round matches, just barely failing to advance, although he only played in one of those games. While studying at the Birmingham School of Art in England, he was a member of the Staffordshire and Pickwicks Hockey Clubs. In Kenya, he had a successful decade-long stint with Sikh Union Nairobi (now known as Simba Union). Following his retirement from international competition in 1966, he took up golf and found a modicum of success in this endeavor as well. By career he was an architect.
