Glenn Caughey

Tennis ∙ Beaver Falls

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in Beaver Falls, Glenn Caughey graduated from Beaver Falls High School in 1930, attended Geneva for two years, but earned his athletic prowess on the tennis courts. Playing against many of Pennsylvania’s best, Glenn became the singles and doubles champion in the 1940s in New Jersey and won the senior men’s championship in 1952 and 1953 in Pittsburgh, as well as the Beaver County doubles championship in 1951. He played on the College Hill Tennis Club that went undefeated for the entire decade of the 1950s. Glenn coached tennis at Robert Morris College and was the first tennis coach at the Community College of Beaver County and his CCBC teams won the Skyline Conference Championship. Glenn has also served as an officer in the Western Pennsylvania Lawn Tennis Association. The most satisfying part of his tennis career was the chance to teach the game to over 3000 people in Beaver County as the County Recreation Department tennis instructor for over 20 years. Glenn was also instrumental in founding the first indoor tennis facility (the Bubble) in Beaver County.
