At the 1908 London Olympics he won those medals in the men's singles and doubles (with George Simond) event (both were contested indoor). In both finals he lost to fellow British player Arthur Gore.[2] Caridia reached the singles semifinals of Wimbledon in 1903 and the quarterfinals in 1904 and 1909.

Caridia was reportedly best on covered courts which suited his strong half-volley, he won the Welsh Covered Court Championships nine times between 1899 and 1909, playing at Craigside, Llandudno, Wales for 20 consecutive years.

Caridia later became a member of the committee of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association. He died in 1937 and was buried at West Norwood Cemetery.
