Meet Steve & Trish Griggs

Steve Griggs was the head coach of men's tennis and soccer at Yale before moving to the platform tennis rich environment of New Jersey in 1997. Both he and his wife Trish picked up the game quickly and soon found themselves on teams in the top division of NJ paddle. For the past 15 years they have been playing in local as well as national tournaments sponsored by the APTA (American Platform Tennis Association). Steve has won two national age group titles. Both Steve and Trish are certified instructors of the PPTA (Professional Platform Tennis Association). Steve was the teaching pro at the Noe Pond Club in Chatham, NJ. Now they have returned to CT and live in Guilford where they are the teaching pros at Guilford Racquet Club. They will split their time between Stonington and Guilford as they bring the excitement of paddle to our community.
