Keith Studnick

Keith plays paddle out of Waynesborough Country Club in Paoli, PA home of the 2010 Men’s and Women’s Nationals as well as the 2013 and 2014 Junior Nationals. Keith is one of the key players that will host the 2017 Men’s and Women’s Nationals. He is also the co-commissioner of the Men’s MAPTA paddle league which now has over 80 teams from 24 clubs in the Philadelphia and Wilmington regions.

Along with his wife Denise (regularly seen on the Region 3 President’s Cup Teams), they run Mixed MAPTA, which is possibly one of the largest mixed-platform tournament with draws regularly capping off at 64 teams coupled with an always memorable party on Saturday evening. He participates in many local MAPTA events and when paired with a high caliber player, can make it quite far in the back-draws. His proudest achievement on the paddle court to-date has been as a player on Waynesborough’s Championship D1 teams for the past two seasons.

After failing his 11th grade English class in High School, no one, including his parents or spouse would have guessed that he would be writing articles on a national level regarding platform tennis. He is most noted for his article that APTA would not publish regarding PED use among the paddle elite and not so elite in the MAPTA league that he governs. You can find this article published on this website though. When not on the paddle court, you can find Keith on the sidelines watching one of his three daughters play lacrosse, soccer, platform tennis or basketball.
