Chris Humphreys

Chris Humphreys is a welcome new addition to the Chestnut Ridge staff for the 2017-18 season. He graduated in 2017 from Elon College with a degree in Sports & Event Management and was a member of their Division I varsity tennis team. In his junior and senior years, he was named an All-Conference doubles player.

As a junior player, Chris was ranked #1 in the B16 in the Southwest Section in 2011-12 as well as #3 in the B18 in the Southwest in 2012-13. He has taught at the John Newcombe Tennis Academy and was the #1 assistant pro at Bedford Golf and Tennis in the summer of 2017.

Chris describes his approach to coaching as follows: “Focus on the things you can control on the court. The only things that you can control are your attitude, your effort, and your footwork. Take care of those things and the rest of the game will take care of itself.”
