Greg Robinson

Greg has been playing competitive tennis since 1991. He initially started playing casually with his brother. Then he caught the bug, joined the USTA, and started playing in leagues. From there he joined Club Briarwood, now ACAC, and grew even more passionate about tennis. Greg loves the sport because it allows him to get exercise, be competitive, and also be social. Unfortunately, due to injuries, Greg is not able to play as much as he used to, but he still enjoys the sport and especially loves teaching tennis. He still remembers the first time he saw the folks from Sportable teaching tennis at Byrd Park. From that very moment, he knew that he had to be a part of Sportable wheelchair tennis.
