Kwame Griffith

Senior Tennis Advisor / Senior Tennis Professional

Kwame was born and raised in Georgetown, Guyana, and at age 10 migrated to Botswana, Africa where he was quickly recognized as a gifted athlete. 
Growing up Kwame played all sports, but one day he played a tennis match against a friend at the local courts. Kwame lost this match, which was the beginning of the love for tennis. Kwame had the burning desire to get better.

Kwame was predominantly self-taught up until his teens, and after receiving his first professional tennis-coaching lesson, he was recognized with innate ability to be a true player. After graduating high school Kwame pursued his passion and accepted a tennis scholarship to attend a nationally ranked NJCCA Division 1 team at ASA College.

After representing ASA in 1st singles and 1st doubles throughout most of his playing years Kwame was named Assistant Tennis Coach upon graduating. Kwame has been coaching the ASA men’s team for the last 3 years, winning NJCAA national titles 2 out of those 3 years (2014 & 2015) and finishing runner up in the other.

For his efforts as coach, Kwame was named Assistant Coach of the Year for his division in 2014. Kwame started working with Tennis Innovators NYC in 2013 and is now ready to bring his experience to TI Academy in White Plains!
