Welcome Back Coach Craig!

The Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club (DGSRC) welcomes back Craig Southworth as the head pro for the 2021 season. Craig has lived and been a part of the Downers Grove community for 20+ years. Craig played Division 1 tennis at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  He is a certified athletic trainer through NATA, the National Athletic Trainers Association, and worked with all levels of athletes from high- school-age to professional teams including the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Blackhawks.  He is certified tennis coach through the International Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) & Craig has been teaching tennis to kids and adults in the western suburbs—and instilling a love for the sport—for more than 15 years. Craig has been a tremendous asset to the DGSRC tennis program and we are glad to welcome him back for his 5th season.
