Scott Crichlow is originally from the Northeast, growing up in Boston and then living in New York City following completion of a dual-degree Physics and Electrical Engineering program at Seton Hall University, where he was awarded a four-year tennis scholarship. Upon completion of his studies, Scott decided to pursue his passion for tennis at the professional level, competing in many Futures and Challenger events.
His playing prowess enabled him to be hired as a hitting partner for members of the Chinese Federation Cup team at the 2000 U.S. Open, a hitting partner for American Davis Cup member Vince Spadea at the 2001 U.S. Open, and in 2001 earned a spot as a featured player and co-star in a nationally televised Lincoln-Mercury commercial starring John McEnroe for that year’s U.S. Open, as well. He has coached at the Division I collegiate level at his alma mater Seton Hall, and coached the Fairleigh Dickinson University Men’s Team to an NCAA National Championship Tournament berth.
Scott has been at Beverly Hills Tennis since 2003, teaching students of all ages and levels. Since first moving to Southern California he has been instrumental in the development of numerous juniors who have gone on to the collegiate and professional ranks. Scott currently does coaching stints on the ATP Tour, working with highly ranked players at top events, including the grand slams.
